Obituary of Alice Iwinski
Age 95 of Buffalo, NY and Lexington, KY passed away peacefully at home on July 20,
2023 surrounded by the love and prayers of her family and friends. Devoted wife of 31 years to the late Henry Iwinski, Sr.; dear sister to the late Ruth Wodowski and Dorothy Stachowiak; loving mother to the late Judith (James) Mayer and to Thomas (Sally), David (Betty),
Mark (Julie), William (Alice), Henry Jr. (Lesley), Mary (Edward) Bowman, Philip (Debra), Ann (Joseph) Winkler, and Keith (Nicole); also survived by 32 grandchildren, 26 great-grandchildren, and countless other cherished family and friends.
Alice lived an incredibly full life, mainly in the Buffalo area and in Lexington, but also raised family in California, the Philippines, Canada, Venezuela, and Ecuador. In her later years she loved drinking coffee and watching the sun rise on vacation in Topsail Beach, NC.
Alice’s day was built around prayer, and she especially loved Mass and the Rosary. She loved family traditions (often from her Polish roots) and for decades wherever she was felt like “home” to many. Alice was an avid fan of the Buffalo Bills and Sabres and the University of Kentucky, and always rooted for her favorite golfers. She enjoyed knitting, jigsaw puzzles, and choosing birthday cards for all of her family, in which she wrote “Love You Forever.” She had a brave, adventurous spirit, a wonderful sense of humor, and lived a life of service with faith, kindness, humility, and love at its core.
