Irene Rose Marie O’Rourke, 64, departed this life and entered her eternal life of peace with Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Kingdom of Heaven on Saturday, February 19, 2022. Irene was born on Sunday, May 12, 1957, to her parents Alex “Pelon” and Mary Maldonado with whom she’s been reunited with in Heaven. Irene is also preceded in death by her 1st husband and sons' father, Mr. Patrick Salazar, nephew, Derek James Cordova; and friend, Patricia Martinez. Irene leaves behind her husband and soulmate of 35 years, Mr. William Patrick O’Rourke, her daughter and best friend, Brandy Lynn Atencio and husband, Michael Atencio Sr of Pueblo; son, Patrick Adam Salazar and family of Walsenburg; brothers, Robert Maldonado, William “Billy” Maldonado, Gilbert “Poncho” Maldonado, Alex “Alvin” Maldonado and one sister, Christine Pedraza; forever loved and cherished by the keepers of her heart, her grandchildren, Christopher Lee Martinez Jr. (her baby), Adrina Lynn Martinez (her ladybug), Ezequiel Xavier (her little man), Catalaya Ezabella Grace (her princess), Neniah Angel (her sunshine), Josiah James (Jo-Jo) and Michael Ray Atencio Jr (her stinkz); great grandchildren and angels, Ian Kingston and Cyrus Armani Martinez. Irene was a true blessing to her family. She was an amazing wife to her husband, and a one in a million mother to her children. There wasn’t anything in the world that she wouldn't do just to see her grandchildren smile. She loved being with them, teaching them things and watching them grow. She was an irreplaceable Nana, and she wore the title proudly. Irene also loved the Denver Broncos, dancing and being outside in the nice warm sunshine with a Budlight and her old school music playing. Her death has left a void, an emptiness, in the hearts of those who loved her. Until we meet again in the sky, Rest easy and fly free Momma for Heaven gained another Angel when our Father opened up the gates and welcomed you into His Kingdom. As per Irene's wishes, cremation has taken place and services will be held at a later date.
