Irene Grzybinski

We are very sorry to learn of the death of former Chelsea Provident Cooperative Bank President Irene Grzybinski. She died Wednesday morning.

Ms. Grzybinski was the first female president of a major Chelsea Bank in the city’s modern history.

She was a humble, quiet, able bank president who was well-known in banking circles here for 50 years.

A Funeral Mass will be held for her on Saturday at 9:15 a.m. at St. Stan’s. Burial will follow at Holy Cross Cemetery.

Ms. Grzybinski had a presence at the bank.

She was the bottom line and helped to grow the bank during the 1980’s and into the 1990’s.

A funeral mass has been scheduled for her on Saturday at 9:15 a.m. from St. Stanislaus Church on Chestnut Street to be followed by burial at Holy Cross Cemetery.

The Welch Funeral Home is in charge of the preparations.
