Obituary for Irene Sampson (Dizdar)

Irene Sampson (Dizdar)
Irene Sampson (nee Dizdar) passed away peacefully on July 21, 2017 at Heritage Springs Assisted Living in Las Vegas, Nevada after a wonderful life of 86 years.

Irene was born on January 6, 1932 in Akron, Ohio to the late Nicolas and Katherine Dizdar. She was a graduate of South High School. She left Akron for Los Angeles where she enjoyed a long and successful career in clothing retail culminating in management positions at Saks Fifth Avenue, Gucci and St. John’s. Following her retirement, she became a welcome addition to the staff at the Egg & I restaurant in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Irene will be long remembered for her grace, humor and poise. At every stop along her long and fulfilling life it was her mission to make people feel welcome and joyful. Not a day went by where Irene didn’t take the time to offer a kind word or gesture for friend and strangers alike.

She was preceded in death by her husband, William Sampson; sister, Eleanor Adams, as well as brothers Rudolf and Carl Dizdar,

Irene is survived by her only son, Vincent Sampson, his wife, Nicole, and grandchildren, Mila and Sophie Sampson of Arlington, Virginia.
