After normal school (teacher training) in Calgary during war years, Irene ventured out to teach a few years in small communities before taking a position in Pincher Creek. It was here that she met her future husband, Shirley Hinman, and continued to reside until her passing.

Raising her own family was her greatest joy, and as a devoted mother, homemaker and community member, she lived a life of service to others. Her hands were always busy; tending to home and children, baking, gardening, or handcrafting clothes, quilts or framed needlework. She was active in the United Church, Rebekahs Lodge and as a community volunteer.

In retirement, she and Dad treasured their time with friends and neighbours while camping, playing cards, travelling, dancing or just enjoying a good visit over coffee or a meal.

Irene is survived by her four children, Lenore Hinman of Lethbridge; Bruce (Beth Ronaghan) of Stittsville, Ont.; Maureen (Greg) Tarnowski of Carseland; Garth (Darla Figved) of Lethbridge. She will be remembered fondly by her grandchildren — those in the Ottawa area, Christopher (Heather Thompson) Hinman; Seth Hinman; Jennifer Hinman; Amy (Mitchell Greenis) Tarnowski; and Danielle (Devin) Schlenker and great-grandsons Tyson and Adam of Dunmore, Alta. She is also survived by her brother Grant Campbell of Calgary and sister-in-law Eva Campbell of Pincher Creek, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Irene was predeceased by Shirley, her husband of 60 years, and by brother Max Campbell; sister Jean (George) Sibbald; Hinman brothers-in-law and sister-in-law, Henry (Agnes); Ted (Della); Doug (Jane); Grant (Faye); Jennie (Milo) Vance; and sister-in-law Joyce Campbell.

Irene Lenore Hinman will be remembered by those who knew her as a gentle, caring, hard-working woman who spoke only kindly of others, loved God, and sought to live out her faith.

A celebration of life will be held at a future date.

If desired, memorial donations can be made to the Alzheimer Society of Alberta and Northwest Territories, or to a charity of choice.
