IRENE SHARLOTTE ALZNAUER, 95, formerly of BRICK, passed away peacefully Thursday, Feb. 14, in Raleigh, N.C. She was born and educated in New York City and resided in Roselle Park, after her marriage, and moved to the Shore Acres section, Brick in 1949. Soon after moving to Brick, Mrs. Alznauer became an active member of the community including joining with her husband the Brick Township Volunteer First Aid Squad. She was keenly interested in books and children, and from 1953 until her retirement in 1978, she served as a librarian in the Brick Township School system. She started the libraries in Osbornville, Laurelton, Herbertsville, Drum Point, and Midstreams elementary schools. She also helped establish the libraries at the Emma Havens Young School and at the Brick Township High School. In 1960, Mrs. Alznauer and 11 other community leaders began the Friends of the Brick Township Library and she served as the president of the Trustees. In 1965, this group was responsible for bringing the first permanent public library to the township. In 1976, the library moved to the Municipal Complex on Chambers Bridge Road and was incorporated into the Ocean County Library system. Mrs. Alznauer was also very active in the Brick Council of Arts, a committee of the Friends of the Brick Township Library, which sponsored cultural improvement programs, including art exhibits, musical programs and trips to the ballet and opera in New York City. Until she moved to Raleigh, N.C., she was a member of the Brick Presbyterian Church and a member of its choir. After her retirement, Mrs. Alznauer resided in Shore Acres and Brielle until 2002 when she moved to Raleigh, N.C. to be near her daughter and granddaughter.
Mrs. Alznauer was predeceased by her husband, William G. Alznauer; her sister, Marie Sathmary; and her brothers, Joseph and Dr. Julius Andorko. She is survived by her daughter, Jill Irene Alznauer of Raleigh, N.C.; two sons, William Joseph Alznauer and George Mathias Alznauer of Fernandina Beach, Fla.; five grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren.
Mrs. Alznauer will be cremated and her ashes will be interred with her husband's remains at the Greenwood Cemetery, Brielle, at a later date.
