from Auburn Adventist Academy and attended Walla Walla
College. She enjoyed helping others, playing the piano, hiking,
sewing and cooking.
Coming to College Place in the mid-1990s, Bill and Irline became
active members and invested in the future of the Northside
Seventh-day Adventist Church at 13th and Dell Avenues, where
Irline shared her music gifts in the children's department and Bill
was a gifted Sabbath School Superintendent.
