Mrs. Irene Peltzer is originally from Mount Carmel, Pennsylvania and moved down South later in life. Irene was one of five children and grew up in the coal mining area of Sheboygen, Pennsylvania.
After high school Irene went to work for a Doctor and his wife tending to their two small sons. Irene went on to marry her husband Joe who was a coalminer and was very dedicated to providing for her and their children.
In the past Irene loved cooking and baking and it was something her children and grandchildren always looked forward to; but now days Mrs. Peltzer can be found spending her time completing puzzle books and crocheting.
