Irene Garnero

November 25, 1921 ~ May 13, 2018 (age 96)

Irene C. Garnero, age 96, passed away peacefully in her home of 76 years on Sunday, May 13, 2018.  Irene was born in Acampo, California to Michael and Teresa Manna.  She came to Monterey as the young bride of Frank J. Garnero, Jr., owner of the El Camino Bakery.  Frank passed away in 1968 and Irene made a wonderful life for herself.  She went back to school graduating as an LVN and later enjoyed a 20-year career at J.C. Penny Company where she managed the Girls and Boys Department. 

Her kindness, sense of humor and loving generous spirit will be deeply felt and Irene will be missed dearly by her daughter Marjorie Garnero, daughter JoAnn Shankle (Greg), son Michael Garnero (Cindy), Grandson Stuart Shankle (Dee), Grandson Doug Shankle (Allison), Great Grandchildren Tatum and Christopher and several nieces and nephews.

The family would like to extend their gratitude and appreciation to Hospice of the Central Coast and a special thank you to her loving caregivers, Luz, Susan and Alma.

Per Irene’s wishes burial will be private.  Contributions can be made to Hospice of the Central Coast.
