Irene Kuebler


Irene P. Kuebler, 76, of Lakewood Ranch, Florida, passed away peacefully on February 7, 2024, as a result of complications from metastatic breast cancer.

She was born to Frank and Cecilia Skiengel on June 9, 1947, in Newark, New Jersey. Irene got married, started a family and raised her three children in Old Bridge, New Jersey.

After her divorce, she went back to school to get a degree in Psychology at Kean College and began a career in Sales for Minolta. Once her children were grown, she pursued her passion and moved to NYC to begin her acting, singing and dancing career.

She performed in several off-Broadway productions and thrived when she was on stage. In her retirement years, Irene moved to FL to be near her children. She adored her beloved family and was happiest when they were all together. She loved her life here in Lakewood Ranch and had a very strong faith in Jesus Christ. Irene passed away with her children by her side just as she would have wanted. She will be forever missed.

Irene was predeceased by her parents: Frank and Cecilia Skiengiel; her brother: Jerome Skiengiel; and her son-in-law: William Eastmond. Irene is survived by her daughter: Kristina Eastmond; her sons: James F Kuebler Jr (Christine) and Darren Kuebler, her 4 grandchildren: Amanda Eastmond, Alex Eastmond, Jimmy Kuebler and Olivia Vari (Luke); and her two sisters: Joan Ciesienski and Jane Kubilus.

Irene's request was for an intimate gathering so there will be a private Celebration of Life for immediate family only. Brown & Sons Funeral Homes & Crematory 26th Street Chapel, 5624 26th Street West, Bradenton, Florida 34207, is in charge of arrangements.
