Fort Edward

Jean C. Irwin, 92, passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 25, 2018, surrounded by her family at Fort Hudson Nursing Home.

Born on January 7, 1926, in Staten Island, she was the daughter of the late Hugo Cutter Sr. and Bertha (Fisher) Cutter.

Jean graduated from Curtis High School in Staten Island and after graduation went on to receive her Associates Degree in Business.

On May 22, 1948, Jean married the love of her life, Bruce Thomas Irwin in Staten Island. They spent 38 years together until his passing in July of 1986.
