Gone, but not forgotten.

Our dear relatives and friends, Irv and Irene Pinyerd, are now together again in God's grace.

They lived together in life for 65 and one-half years. That is a mighty feat. They lived those years in love, harmony, grace and humor.

Hard work sustained them, as well as their devotion to family, friends and neighbors.

They married in 1942, a difficult time in America. After marriage, they worked in Keyport, Washington, building torpedoes. Years later, Irv would learn that his Group Health Kidney doctor also had worked at Keyport, but not in the same era.

Irv graduated from Olympic Junior College as valedictorian, and went on to the University of Washington, all while working many jobs. The Teamsters union, Prudential Insurance and Bremerton Shipyard (no particular order), culminating at General Services Administration, where he had many cherished friends that celebrated regular lunches and birthdays.

Irene went on to work for the phone company, Ma Bell, as an operator, business representative and supervisor of the Business Department for 30 years. She made many lifelong friends there. Several of her co-workers’ husbands were attending the University of Washington, and they were a group of friends to contend with and enjoy.

Irv and Irene enjoyed retirement to the fullest. They loved cooking together; minestrone soup always a favorite, and Irene's chicken salad was the best. They traveled the world, but always loved their home on Sunset Drive’s views the most. They loved hosting dinners for friends, tea time and providing gracious hospitality.

Irv and Irene were predeceased by their parents, siblings, cousins and many dear friends.

A final goodbye and honoring is scheduled 10 a.m. Nov. 2, at Beck's Tribute Center in Edmonds, with final interment at 2 p.m. at Mt. Angeles Memorial Park in Port Angeles.

Memorials may be sent to Seattle Children's Hospital in Seattle, care of the Irvin and Irene Pinyerd Endowment for Children's Greatest Needs, or the Floretum Garden Club, c/o President Scarce, 606 9th Ave. S, Edmonds, WA 98020.
