STERIAN, Irene - On May 8, 2022, we lost a loving mother, daughter, wife, sister, friend, and Canadian business leader.
Irene is survived by her husband Stephen, children Lauren, Melanie, and Jake, mother Lya, brother Andrew, and an uncounted number of friends, relations and colleagues whose lives she has enriched.
She enjoyed a long career with IBM/Celestica Inc. and was the Founder, President and CEO of the REMAP technology accelerator.
Irene was recognised as an engineering innovator, but one of her greatest accomplishments was setting up her son for success as an adult with autism, and paving the way for other parents to do so.
To honour her dedication to innovation in supporting young adults with disabilities, we would like to suggest donations to Active Lives Canada (https://www.activelivescanada.ca/donate).
A Private Service, limited to invitees of the family, will be held on Sunday, May 15th, at 12:00 p.m.
