  1. My condolences to you all, Uncle Adin, Vernon, Randy and Terry. It was fun to get to know Aunt Irene and her interests a bit better through being Facebook friends. I will miss seeing her comments as I know she will be greatly missed by you also.

  2. Dear Adin & family,
    We are so sorry for your loss. Mrs. Bauman as we all called her, was a very special friend to my mom, Thelma Willis and my sister, Heather Ray. They shared a special bond which was their love of horses.
    Our sincerest sympathy to you & your family Adin.
    Kathy & Larry Penner

She will be greatly missed and I always respected her outlook on life and the care she took of all of her family. Terry, Vernon and Randy, we saw you once a year in our early years but now I wish you comfort in knowing you were loved.
