Irene L. Pahl Wroten, 92, of Frederick, formerly of Baltimore, died, Saturday, April 27, 2013, at Homewood Nursing Home in Frederick.

Born July 23, 1921, in Baltimore, she was the daughter of the late Albert Pahl and Louise A. Kurtz Pahl Dinsmore. She was the wife of Melvin F. Wroten Sr., who died in 1977.

She retired from the Baltimore County Board of Education, where she served for 22 years as a cafeteria manager. She was a past president of Baltimore County Board of Education Food Service Employees.

She grew up and resided in Woodlawn until 2000 when she moved to Homewood at Crumland Farms in Frederick. She was a member of the first 50 to live at Homewood. While there she became involved in water aerobics, manning the country store and the unofficial seamstress for Homewood. She used her sewing skills to help the residents and staff. She especially enjoyed her nightly card games with the group of friends she met at Homewood.

While in high school, a group of church choir members formed a social club that has continued to meet once a month for more than 70 years. In the later years the "girls" and their husbands enjoyed many trips throughout the years.

She was a member of the Woodlawn chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star and she was active in her church her entire life.
