Obituary

Irene Lois (Sones) Huntsman, 87, of Mechanicsburg, Pa., went to be with the Lord on April 2, 2022, while in her home alongside her husband and daughter. Irene was born June 13, 1934. She was a graduate of Millville High School in Millville, Pa., then went to Bloomsburg University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in education. In 1975, she received her Library Science degree from Millersville University, Millersville, Pa.
Irene taught in the Millville School District; Conestoga Valley schools, Lancaster, Pa.; and Benton schools, Benton, Pa. After teaching, she was a School Librarian for Central Dauphin schools in Harrisburg, Pa., before retiring.
On June 16, 1956, Irene married her love, Bill, at the Bloomsburg Glad Tidings Church. Irene and Bill lived in Millville until 1970, moved to Camp Hill, Pa., 1970-1979, then went west to Phoenix, Ariz., where they lived until 2003. In 2003, they returned to Pennsylvania and built a house in Mechanicsburg.
Irene loved the church and children. She volunteered at the Phoenix First Assembly of God Church (now Dream City Church) and sang in the choir. She also volunteered at the Scottsdale Christian Academy several days a week. She enjoyed doing crossword puzzles, playing games, music, crocheting and being with her family.
She is survived by her husband of 65 years, Dr. William “Bill” Guy Huntsman; daughter Alicia Belle Huntsman Martin of Phoenix, Ariz.; grandson Timothy William Martin (Alison) of Ashburn, Va.; and two great-grandchildren: Claire Martin and Jack Martin.
Parents Ralph and Margaret (Sult) Sones and brother Ralph Eugene Sones have gone before her.
