Mrs. Irene Shepherd Trimble Reeder passed away Thursday, March 28, 2019, at the Care Center at Kenton Pointe in Maysville. She was 102 years old.
Born on August 19, 1916, she was the daughter of the late Chan Shepherd and Kate Wells Shepherd.
Irene was blessed in many ways in her long life. She and her late husband, John Trimble, owned and operated a general store at Lewisburg, KY. She liked gardening and canning garden vegetables, and in past years, had helped with the farming adventure. She and her late husband, Tommy Reeder lived in Nepton. For the past four years, she had been a resident of the Pioneer Trace Nursing Home. Always anxious for a hug, Irene loved the people at the nursing home including the nurses and other residents.
