Key, Irene Pauline, age 96, passed away Saturday, May 15th when the Good Shepherd called her to join Him. Irene was preceded in death by her parents, John and Pauline Wenger, her brothers John and Paul Wenger, and is survived by her sister, Dorothy Schiff.
A loving, tender, and kind mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, she is survived by her sons Gary (Lisa) Key and David (Jennie) Key; her grandchildren Melissa (Brian) Kershner, Sara (Johnny) Shinn, Tommy Key, and Amy (Andy) Naylor; and her great-grandchildren, Zachariah, Hannah, Elizabeth and Abigail Kershner, Elliott and Charlie Shinn, and Oliver Naylor (Little Goodness). She is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
Irene was known for her kindness and dedication to her family and her friends. She was faithful in her care of her parents as they aged and was loyal to her circle of friends, who met regularly for cards and fellowship for decades. Her friends at the Christian Village at Mount Healthy frequently remarked on her ready smile and sweet disposition. She was very social and enjoyed the company of others.
She was a fragile fighter, overcoming many struggles in her life, and never giving up.
She was especially devoted to her sons, Gary and David, and her sacrificial love for them and their families was a hallmark of her character. She is much loved and missed.
