Irene Ledom

April 25, 1924 — July 1, 2018

Irene was a homemaker. She loved shopping on QVC, redecorating and arranging furniture, knitting (she made an afghan for all her grandchildren), and teaching ceramic painting.  She especially enjoyed fussing over her grandchildren. One of her traits, which many will fondly remember, is that she always wore earrings; as soon as she woke up she put them on.

She was also preceded in death by her parents.
