Our beloved mom and grandma, affectionately known as “Granny Farm,” Irene M. (Shedrock) Story Friedrich, 94, of La Vernia, Texas, went to be with the Lord Sunday, Feb. 26, 2012. Irene was born Sept. 5, 1917, in Adkins, the daughter of Thedore and Mary (Kylla) Shedrock.

Granny lived and enjoyed her life in San Antonio and then in La Vernia on her farm for many years. Her farm is where she adopted and cared for many animals and where her grandchildren enjoyed many summers. Granny’s spirit and her cheerful attitude were a joy to be around and her giggles will be greatly missed, her family said. We love you, Granny.

Irene was preceded in death by her parents; her first husband, Carl Story Sr.; her second husband, Alvin Friedrich; her sister, Ida Mergele; and her stepson, Alvin Friedrich Jr.
