 Irene Mae Sinn

Irene Mae (Edelman) Sinn, 67, passed away Dec 29, 2022 after a long struggle with Lewy Body Dementia.

Irene was born on in Sabetha, Kansas to Daniel and Wilma Edelman. She
grew up on a farm in rural Northeast Kansas along with her four siblings.
She enjoyed playing volleyball, basketball and track at Bern High School.
She attended Kansas State University and Stormont-Vail Hospital for her Registered Nurse degree. 

Irene married James Sinn in August 1976 and moved to Silverton, Oregon.
She worked as an RN for 41 years, first at Salem Hospital, then at Silverton Hospital Foot Clinic. She retired in 2018. Jim and Irene celebrated their 46th anniversary this year.

Irene was an excellent cook and baker. She enjoyed flowers, gardening, and hiking, but most of all she loved Jesus Christ and her family. She delighted in being surrounded by her children, grandchildren, and husband. Irene was an active volunteer at Silverton First Baptist Church and in the community.

Irene is survived by her husband, Jim; four children, Scott (Karen) of Salem, T.J. (Melissa) of Silverton, Rebecca (Casey) Murphy of Silverton, and Rachel (Wesley) Holman of Silverton; her siblings, Karen Edelman of Topeka, Kansas, Wayne (Linda) Edelman of Bern, Kansas, Earl (Donna) Edelman of Bern, and Edith (Tom) Sinn of Silverton; and her 15 beloved grandchildren.
