Irene Elizabeth Hahn, 78, passed away overnight on 2/11/22 at her Sun City West home.
She is survived by her husband of 56 years, Ernest, her children; Randy and Rusty (Kristy), her grandchildren; Rex (Matt), Cera (Bernie Boyle), Andriana, Tristan, Daemion and Analeah, her great grandchildren; Bernard, Nicole and Benjamin. She was also the Sister, Aunt, Great Aunt and cousin to dozens, upon dozens, upon dozens. Many of which she located because of her passion for genealogy and it’s because of that passion that many of those dozens, upon dozens, upon dozens now know how extended their family is. She was always one to accept everyone for who they are, no matter what, and everyone knew they could talk to mom, Grandma, Sister, Aunt, great Aunt, cousin about anything and they would instantly feel better for doing it. She also treated her friends the same way she treated her family. Whether old school chums from the MN State School for the Deaf, the SF Bay Area deaf community, PCDWBA, Modesto Deaf Club and community, or just someone she happened to meet at the Deaf Seniors Center of Mesa, everyone was welcomed. She will be sorely missed and fondly remembered.
There WILL be an informal get together for her…. the date, time and location will be posted on Facebook (you know how she loved Facebook as means to keep in touch) as it’s the easiest way to let so many people know.
