Irene M. Resberg, 87, of Duluth, passed away Friday, Oct, 7, 2011, in Essentia Health St. Mary's Medical Center.
Irene was born in Duluth Dec. 14, 1923, to Mark and Della (Foley) Patnaude. She graduated from Denfeld High School, class of 1942.
She worked for a time before marrying Alvin Resberg on Sept. 14, 1946. Irene was a homemaker and spent the next many years raising her family. Irene had a generous nature and held onto her wry sense of humor until the end. The most important thing to Irene was family and the time she spent with them.
She was preceded in death by her parents; step-mother Victoria Royer Patnaude; and siblings Dan, Helen and Catherine.
Irene is survived by her husband 65 years, Alvin; children Jan Marc Resberg of South Range, Timothy (Kathy) Resberg of Hermantown, Bethann Williams of Duluth and Kathy Resberg of Blaine, Minn.; nine grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; siblings Gerald Patnaude of Esko, Robert (Sharon) Patnaude of Oklahoma, Tom (Margaret) Patnaude of Hermantown, and Carol (Jack) Paquette of Duluth; brother-in-law Don Holmgren of Duluth; and numerous nieces, nephews, other family members and friends.
