Irene Hengesbach, age 87, of Sheridan, passed away on January 21, 2023 at Sparrow Carson Hospital in Carson City surrounded by her family.
Irene was a very social person who liked being around people and enjoyed hosting gatherings with her friends and family. She absolutely loved Holland Lake and would take every opportunity she got to be on the pontoon, be it coffee in the morning or cocktails in the evening, she treasured the peacefulness and tranquility of the lake. Irene and her husband Ernie, also enjoyed the 23 years they spent wintering in Florida and cherished the friendships they made. However, the most important thing to Irene was her family, especially her grandkids and great grandkids and she will be dearly missed by them all.
