I am looking for someone that can unconfuse me.
My mother, aunt and uncles were raised by a womaan named Irene in Westport, Ma.
Their names were Robert, Agnes, Eugene, and Fab.
I just ran across an obit for Irene Costa that had my relatives listed as some of her children.
What I do not understand is that this Irene is younger than my Mom and uncles.Was Irene a daughter of the Irene that raised my mother?

How can Irene be the daughter is the obit says she is the mother of your family?

Do you have any dates for your family - might be able to find census info or birth and marriage info.

Thank you for the return.
Here is the obit I am talking about. It is for a woman named Irene that was born in 1935.
My mother and her siblings were raised by an Irene in a foster home. This obit says that Irene's children were.....with my mother, her brothers and sister listed.
My mother was born in 1923 so THIS Irene can nit be her mother.
Maybe THIS Irene is my mother's foster sister. ???????
I am hoping someone that knew here could explain the relationships.
Thank you

Okay now I get it!

You're right - probably a foster sister of your mom.

If you give names and dates they possibly could be found on the 1930 and 1940 Census.
