Irene (Hahn) Buman

November 25, 1924 — March 24, 2011

Irene Louise (Hahn) Buman, one of three children of William H. and Frieda C. (Wagner) Hahn, was born November 25, 1924 at Johnson, Nebraska.

On November 17, 1947 Irene was united in marriage to Robert E. Buman at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Auburn. They made their first home on the family farm near Steinauer, Nebraska, and were blessed with three children: Ron, Gloria, and Dan.

Irene and Bob later moved in to Steinauer, where they owned and operated Buman TV Sales and Service. The couple lived in Lincoln, Nebraska and then moved to Madison, Nebraska. While there they were owners of Buman Chevrolet, and Irene was very active in the business and running the parts department. In 1983 the couple retired and moved to Florida.

In Florida Irene kept busy by volunteering with the St. Vincent DePaul soup kitchen, with Meals on Wheels, and taking her neighbors for doctor visits. After her husband Bob died in 1988 Irene did some traveling with her good friend Lois from Steinauer. She enjoyed crocheting, tatting, and knitting, and liked to work puzzles and read.

With her health failing, Irene moved to Auburn, Nebraska in December of 2010 to live with her son Dan and his wife Melissa. It was at their home she passed away on Thursday, March 24, 2011 at the age of 86 years, 3 months, and 27 days. In addition to her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by her brother Harvey H. Hahn, sister-in-law and brothers-in-law Catherine and Robert Cool, Joe Krontz, Myron Kent, and Clifford Lang.

Irene is survived by her children and their spouses Ron and Sharon Buman of Clearwater, FL; Gloria and Don Schneider of Milford, NE; Dan and Melissa Buman of Auburn; grandchildren Todd Buman, Tim Buman, Sue Anderson, Tom Snider, Melissa Snyder, and Michael Curry; great-grandchildren Ashley Buman, Nicole Buman, Elizabeth Anderson, and Chloe Curry; sister Verna Mae Lang of Syracuse; sisters-in-law Winnie Krontz of Tecumseh; Edith Kent of Pawnee City; Peg and husband Ray Thomsen of Beatrice; other relatives and friends.
