Irene was a 1946 graduate of Huntsville High School and a 1948 graduate of Wittenberg University. She always said if you love what you do, you never really work a day in your life. She worked for Meredith & Meredith Law firm for 69 years from 1948-2017 and loved every minute of it. Irene and John also owned and operated John E. Coil’s Used Cars in Wapakoneta, OH and the Welcome Inn in New Hampshire, OH. Irene has been a lifetime member of Muchinippi Church and a true disciple of God. She loves the Lord, church, her family, crossword puzzles, all God’s creatures, especially her cats and grand-dogs. She has always possessed an endless reservoir of curiosity and awe, from which she drew her inspiration for life. She will live on forever in each person she knew, because of her loving heart, beautiful smile and amazing ability to forgive.
