Irene Beatrice Stringer
I have been researching Irene for many years and still have not been able to put all the parts together regarding her life. Here are a few facts that I believe to be correct. Irene was married and living in Pennsylvania when she applied for Social Security. When she did this she misrepresented her age by ten years stating that she was born in 1907 when she was really born in 1897. I think she did this because her husband Marshall Twombly was about 10 years younger than she was. Marshall Twombly was born about November 1909 in Titusville, Crawford Co., Pennsylvania to Delvin D. & Almeda Twombly. I have not found any census information regarding Marshall and Irene since the 1920/30 census.

I think that Irene (Stringer) Twombly was destitute when she died. She died at County General Hospital, Torrance, California and was cremated at Los Angeles County Crematorium Cemetery and interred there in a common grave in 1966.

Irene had a sister Wilma Viola Stringer who married Buren Americus Whitten abt. 1921 in Schleicher or Tom Green Co., Tx. Wilma died 25 Dec 1930 in San Angelo, Tom Green Co., Texas in a house fire.

Irene also had several half-siblings who were Mary Belle Richardson Stigler, Jim Hugh Richardson, Frank C. Richardson and Annie Margaret Richardson Hensley.

Any added information to this memorial is appreciated.
