Irene M Duvoisin

September 22, 1940 - November 11, 2019
Born in Franklin, NJ
Resided in Lafayette, NJ


Irene M. Duvoisin, of Lafayette Twp. passed away at her longtime home on Monday, November 11, 2019, at the age of 79.

Irene was born in Franklin on September 22, 1940 to the late John and Emma Blake; she was a lifelong resident of Sussex County. Irene was a graduate of Franklin High School. Her first job was working at the Gingerbread Castle in Hamburg and then as a secretary for 2 years at Picatinny Arsenal. Irene worked at High Point Regional High School for a short period, she then took a secretarial position at Lafayette Township School where she worked until retirement. While working for Lafayette Township School, Irene wore many hats, she stood in as the School Nurse, Librarian, and occasionally ran the entire school when there weren’t any administrators.

Irene was a loving and devoted wife to her husband of 60 years, Raymond C. Duvoisin; a loving mother to her daughter, Tara Tanis Little of Sussex, NJ; and an equally amazing grandmother to her three grandchildren, Logan Blake Tanis of Lafayette, NJ, Raven Chandler Little of Randolph, NJ, and Keaton Gabriel Little of Middletown, NY.

Irene thoroughly enjoyed being home with her family, her dogs, and her pet chickens. She was an excellent cook and an exceptional baker. The world will truly be a lot less bright without her presence.
