Aunt Irene...

In Loving Memory
Irene Frances DeMoss
"Aunt Irene"
5/24/1926 -8/2/2009

Irene Frances DeMoss, 83,
a 40-year resident of the county died
on August 2, 2009 in Loma Linda, California.

She served the area over 20 years as a real estate broker and professional, including ownership of DeMoss Real Estate with her husband following his retirement from military service at Norton AFB. As a devoted wife of a 25-year career USAF officer and a loving mother of two sons, she willingly traveled throughout the U.S. and Asia; and in each place, she provided a godly and hospitable home environment for her family and countless visitors. She was a wonderful cook, combining country-cooking learned while growing to adulthood in West Virginia with Asian dishes she learned while attending cooking school in Tokyo. Her passion for teaching the Bible to adults and children over many years provides her a spiritual legacy that will long survive her departure for Heaven. She was a long-time, active member of Immanuel Baptist Church, and contributed tireless volunteerism to the San Bernardino Assistance League and the Republican Women’s Club.
Irene is survived by: sons, Kurth and Lawrence DeMoss, brothers Richard and John Miller, sisters, Lorena Arnold and Norma Jean Gaston, and four grandchildren. One brother, Donal Miller, is deceased.
Memorial Services will be held at Immanuel Baptist Church, 28355 Base Line, Highland, CA on Friday August 7th at 2:00 pm. Her interment will be at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia with her husband of 31 years, Lt. Colonel Louis W. DeMoss who was interred there in 1983. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to San Bernardino Assistance League in Irene's memory.
