- — Irene C. Gedeon, of 9 N. Penn Ave., Greenville, passed away tragically Thursday evening (3-20-14) in St. Elizabeth Health Center, Youngstown, as a result of a pedestrian accident in Greenville. She was 89.

She was born Feb. 13, 1925, in Pittsburgh to John A. and Leaettea C. Dieterle-Schneider Gedeon. She was a graduate of Sheakleyville High School.

She was a volunteer at the Good Shepherd Center in Greenville and was very supportive of her fellow residents at the high rise. Irene very much loved reading and working on jigsaw puzzles.

She was preceded in death by her parents, a brother, John W. Gedeon and his wife Mary and two sisters, Leaettea Gedeon and Betty Hurlbut and a dear friend, Alice Ohle.

She is survived by a sister, Ruth Ann Christy and her husband Kendall of Medford, Ore.; a brother-in-law George Gedeon of Pittsburgh and many loving nieces, nephews and great-nieces and nephews.
