Obituary for Irene Clara Heider

Irene Clara Heider was received into the loving arms of Jesus on Tuesday, July 7, 2020 while residing in skilled care at Good Samaritan Society in Grand Island, Nebraska. On Saturday, July 11, 2020, visitation will be held at Trinity Lutheran Church, 212 W 12 in Grand Island, at 10:00 a.m., followed by a worship service at 11:00 a.m., the Reverend Adam Snoberger officiating. The committal will be at Westlawn Cemetery immediately following the service.  CDC guidelines will be observed.

     Irene recently celebrated her 102nd birthday. She was born on June 17, 1918 to Ferdinand and Clara (Dankert) Heider. She grew up in Grand Island, attending District 28, Trinity Lutheran School and Grand Island Senior High School, graduating in the class of 1938. She worked as a housekeeper for the Reinhardt Quandt family. Irene moved to Los Angeles, California to work for the Occidental Life Insurance Company, beginning as a photographer, then as manager.
She retired in 1979 and returned to Grand Island. 

     Irene was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church. She belonged to the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League, and Lutheran Laymen's League. Irene and her sister, Evelyn, would often visit shut-ins, and nursing homes to sing for them, sharing God’s love. She regularly attended worship services held at the Good Samaritan Society. Irene would want you to know that God loves you!

      Irene is survived by two sisters, Alice Weber of Grand Island, and Anne Bandemere of Nevada City, California, and one brother, Daniel of Whittier, California, and many nieces and nephews.  She was preceded in death by her parents, Ferdinand and Clara, sister, Evelyn Peterson, and brothers, Herman, Raymond, Elmer, and Herbert. Memorials are suggested to Trinity Lutheran School, Heartland Lutheran High School or the Lutheran Hour Ministries in lieu of flowers.
