Irene R. Dickinson, 90, of Bellefontaine, passed away on Sunday, July 2, 2023, surrounded by her family. She was born in Champaign County, Ohio on August 8, 1932, to the late Leonard and Anna (West) Birt.

Over the years, Irene touched so many lives and brought joy to so many people. She worked 17 years for G.C. Murphy before they closed then spent many years driving bus for Logan County Board of Developmental Disabilities. From hanging out with her sisters at the Urbana Senior Center to the churches she attended, she was always such a blessing to be around. Some of her hobbies included cooking and baking as her grandkids always knew they could find cookies at grandma’s house. She enjoyed crocheting and was an amazing seamstress, as she made her daughter’s wedding dresses. She enjoyed traveling with her family and loved any minute spent with them. She took pride in her garden and loved taking care of her flowers. She will be deeply missed.
