Irene Ann Schultz Heiny was born July 23, 1926, in Albert Lea, Minnesota. She was the daughter of Frank Schultz and Cecilia M. Schultz. She attended St. Theodore Catholic grade school and Albert Lea High School. She married William Wayne Heiny on February 1, 1949. They made their home on the family farm near Plymouth, Iowa. Irene was fiercely independent. She remained living on the family farm, by herself, following her husband's death in October 1997.

She was active in St. Michael's Catholic Church and the St. Michael's Guild in Plymouth until the church closed. She was a member of the American Legion Auxiliary.

Irene is survived by her children: Mark Heiny, Rock Falls; Claude Heiny, Washington, D.C.; Janine Rayburn, Plymouth, Iowa; and Dan Heiny, Mason City; her grandchildren Shae Angell, Shawn Rayburn, Shanna Rayburn, William Heiny, Anna Heiny, Danika Heiny, and Daeden Heiny, and great-grand children Zane Angell and Abigayle Angell.

She is survived by her brother Roger Schultz, Albert Lea, her sister-in-laws, Becky Johnston, Northwood, Barbara Schultz, Victoria, Minnesota, and Evelyn Schultz, Albert Lea.

She was preceded in death by parents, sisters, Margaret Schultz and Lorraine Schultz Stam, her brothers Robert Schultz, Raymond "Sharkey" Schultz, Alton Schultz, Alvin Schultz, and Leo Schultz, and her sister-in-laws Delores Schultz and Millie Schultz.

She enjoyed baking, gambling, fishing, camping, jigsaw puzzles, and working outdoors. She very much enjoyed traveling before macular degeneration affected her sight. She traveled to China, England, the Emerald Isle, and the World Fairs. She enjoyed frequent bus trips and the birthday club with "the girls." She was an early riser who enjoyed cooking, collecting and reading cook books of which she had hundreds. She was very keen to always pay her own way. Irene was a very caring and loving person who was loved by many. Family meant a great deal to her and she was very proud of her children, grand children, and great-grand children.

She worked at Wilson Foods in Albert Lea, Mason City Newman High School, Libbey-Owens Ford in Mason City, Winnebago in Forest City, and retired from Rockwell Collins/Boeing in Mason City. She enjoyed bowling and was a member of the Roadrunners girl's group in Albert Lea years ago.
