SURFSIDE BEACH, S.C. — Irene Krieg, 92, died Sunday, Jan. 20, 2013, at her home in Surfside Beach, following a short illness.

Born in 1920, in Washington, D.C., Irene was the daughter of Daniel and Annie Wilson.

Before marrying, Mrs. Krieg worked for National Geographic, the British Consulate, and the Women’s Bureau of the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, D.C.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 53 years, Fred A. Krieg; three sisters; and one brother.

Survivors include her sons, Thomas (Laura) of Milford, Richard (Theresa) of Surfside Beach, S.C.; three grandchildren, Bethany Hovis (Phil), Kaitlyn Krieg and Chelsea Krieg; five nephews and four nieces (including a very special niece, Gail Krickbaum of West Virginia.)

Irene was a faithful member of St. Michael’s Catholic Church and a good friend of Greenwood Baptist Church.

A funeral Mass will be at 3 p.m. Thursday from St. Michael’s Catholic Church with Father Ray Carlo officiating.

The family received friends at the funeral home from 6 until 8 p.m. Wednesday.
