Jan. 25, 1914 - Jan. 4, 2017

Irma Sue Schlieman Carmine Martin, died peacefully Jan. 4, just shy of her 103rd birthday. Born Jan. 25, 1914 in Woodland, to Chester and Victorine Browning Fairchild. Lived in Woodland until her marriage to Wilferd Schlieman, also of Woodland. They relocated to Oakland and then Piedmont, CA to raise their children, Robert Schlieman and Viki Schlieman Cebers.

Many years after Wilferd's early death, she married Campbell Carmine, father of Nancy Thornburg of Markleeville, CA and Mary Whinery of Medford, OR. After Campbell's death Irma Sue married an old college friend, Paul Martin who'd recently lost Rosemary, his wife of many years. Irma Sue and Paul enjoyed over 15 years together in Southern California near his children, Doug, Barbara Ann, Rosemary and their families. They summered at Paul's family cabin near Sierra City where their combined families visited. In recent years, Irma Sue moved back to Northern California (Napa) to be closer to her children and their families, including five grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

At her request, no services will be held. Burial, Mountain View Cemetery, Oakland.
