She is preceded in death by her first husband of 19 years Bill Holloway, as well as her second husband Bill Schneider of 41 years, who just passed on October 28, 2008. She also joins her two children in heaven Ken Holloway and Gary Holloway and her siblings Michael Majersky, Anthony Majersky, Emily Henning, and Elise Majersky.

Mrs. Schneider is survived by Irene A. Comer and husband Charles of Ripon, Bill Holloway and wife Bev of Manteca, Darryle Enafinger of Kentucky and Sharon Duff of Folsom.

Irene was a devout Catholic and a member of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church for over 40 years. To Irene, family was always her number one priority. She cherished every moment with her children, and all her grandchildren. She enjoyed entertaining her family with home cooked meals. Her love for traveling, fishing and the great outdoors made for great family camping trips to Don Pedro. She had a gift of playing the piano and singing. In her younger years she loved dancing; her and Bill even took lessons at Shasta School in Manteca. Her legacy will live on through her generous attitude towards others and her loving heart that she shared with everyone. Her memory will go on through her Cherry Kool-Aid and crushed ice, and the famous 20 mile trips just for a See’s Candies’ sucker.

She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
