In addition to providing for her family as a homemaker, Irene retired from the former Westinghouse plant and later worked at Wishing Well Manor in Fairmont. She was an avid football fan who eagerly awaited the arrival of August each year to spend Friday nights listening to local high school football on the radio and Sunday afternoons watching her beloved Pittsburgh Steelers.

Demastes and husband Robert of Charles Town, and sister Ellen Jean Arnold Wilson, of Fairmont. Additionally, she is survived by grandchildren Stephanie D. Kraynak, Christopher M. Wilson, Abbey E. Coker, Molly J. Wilson and Lexi N. Demastes; great-grandchildren Jocelyn C. Kraynak, Emily G. Kraynak, Grant A. Wilson, Reynolds B. Wilson and Presley E. Coker; sisters-in-law Joey Cyphert and Geraldine Arnold; and several nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband of 62 years, Donald W. Wilson Sr. She was also preceded by her brothers, James A. Cyphert and Bernard A. Arnold and by infant grandchildren Madonna Marie Wilson and Alex Jennings Wilson.
The family would like to thank the staff of Sundale Rehabilitation and Long Term Care and West Virginia Caring for their kindness, care and support in recent months. Friends will be received from 3-8 p.m. Sunday and from noon until the 1 p.m. service at Frey Home for Funerals (Historic Chapel), 320 Madison St., Fairmont, with Pastor Jim Zinn officiating.
