Irene L. (Balint) Super was born on July 27, 1922 to Joseph and Anna (Lesko) Balint and was a member of Sts. Cyril and Methodius Catholic church until it closed and then joined St. Peter’s Cathedral in Kansas City, Kansas.

She enjoyed gardening and was especially gifted with flowers. Her family has fond memories of Sunday dinners together and the annual Super picnic with extended family.
