Irene Marie Shinneman

June 26, 1942 - July 9, 2017
Born in Glendale, California
Resided in Post Falls, ID


IRENE SHINNEMAN, 75, our beloved mother Irene Shinneman passed away July 9th with her three daughters and granddaughter by her side.

Irene was born June 26th 1942 to Jack and Pauline Boesler in Glendale, California. She married Norman Shinneman and they were blessed with five children. After a summer long trip through many states, they fell in love with Idaho and moved their family to Coeur d'Alene in 1972.

Irene became a nurse in the early years of living in Idaho and was very compassionate with her patients, while also raising her children. She later went on to work for the Better Business Bureau in Spokane, WA and then became an independent insurance agent until her retirement.

Irene's happiest times outside of being with her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and family, was spending time on her boat. Funny though, she never learned how to drive her big twin engine boat. She was happy to spend her days just relaxing on her boat enjoying the beautiful evening sunsets.

She also loved spending time year round at the cabin in Priest Lake. Since she always wanted to keep everyone in her sight, she learned to keep up with her children and grandchildren snowmobiling, four wheeling, and jet skiing.

Irene was a very devout Christian and spiritual lady. She cared for and was involved with her sorority sisters as well as the many friends she was blessed with.

Irene is survived by her children Pam Dresser (Kevin Agte), Cindy (Lloyd) Dresser, Kim Routh, sisters Char (Rick) Wilson, Nancy Andrews, and brother Mike (Jill) Andrews. Grandchildren Brandon, Devin, Savanna, Gage, Kayla, Josh, and Jeremiah, four great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

Irene was preceded in death by her parents Jack and Pauline and her stepfather Bill Andrews, her son Randy, and her daughter Debbie.

Funeral services will be held 3:00 p.m. Friday July 21, 2017 at Yates Funeral Home Coeur d'Alene Chapel with public view starting at 2:00 p.m. prior to the service. Burial will be at Riverview Cemetery 1001 Lincoln Way, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho following the Service .
