Fields, Irene Obituary

Irene (Wright) Fields, was born on April 28th, 1948 to Willie and Cora Wright in Phenix City, Alabama, both preceded her in death. As a youth, she accepted Christ as her personal savior at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church in her hometown of Phenix City. The Lord needed a new fragrance in His garden and He chose Irene late in the evening of April 13th, 2015.

She completed her education at South Girard High School and continued her education on the collegiate level at different locations throughout her travel. Irene was blessed to meet her other half, Charles R. Fields, Sr. and their union was formed on December 12th, 1967. Together they traveled the world and raised three children amongst many others. Irene truly was a mother to many! 

After exploring the world and touching countless lives along the way, Irene and her family moved to Alexandria, VA where she began her career as an Accountant with the Federal Government. In 1993 they relocated to Temple Hills, MD where she continued her career and retired after 30 years of dedicated service. She ended her tenure with the government at the Bolling AFB Chapel in Washington, DC. 

A strong woman of God, Irene found a new church home when visited Solid Rock Full Gospel Baptist Church Ministries, International, where she served for many years. As an active member of the church, she shared her many talents and abilities through song, ministry and even décor. Any given Sunday you could find Irene ministering with her beautiful voice, caring for the Pastor, other church members and lending a helping hand wherever she saw a need. 

Irene had a natural passion for interior design.  At a young age, she would tackle arts and crafts projects as an expression of her creativity, from hand-making ceramics to designing full rooms. Irene has always loved creating and putting her special touch on things. She also enjoyed traveling, singing, bowling, working on puzzles, shopping, spending time with her family and most importantly helping others. 

She leaves to cherish her memory, her husband of 47 years, Charles Sr. of MD; two sons, Gary L. Fields, Sr. (Meshell) of VA and Charles R. Fields Jr. of MD; daughter, Angela Denise Wright of MD; six grandchildren, Kateasha L. Fields of VA, Gary L. Fields, Jr. of VA, Bianca D. Wright of CA, Joshua R. Fields of VA, Ezekiel J. Fields of VA and Jayla E. Combs of MD; two great-grandchildren, Justianna L. Fields of VA and De’shawn P. Greene of VA; her sister, Adrine Hood of VA; two aunts, Willa May of MI and Johnnie May of GA; one God-Child, Roderick D. Haynes of FL; and a host of nieces, nephews and cousins. 

Irene is preceded in death by her eldest brother Willie J. Wright, Jr. and youngest brother Michael F. Wright.
