Irene was born on August 12, 1926, to Gottlieb and Mathilda (Schultz) Nicklaus in Elgin, ND. She married Helmuth O. Hermann and with that union, they had two children, Sally and Hal. After Helmuth’s passing, Irene married Arthur H. Eggers on November 25, 1955. Together they had three children, Cindy, Cheryl, and Wes.
Irene’s greatest love was her family. She loved to cook and bake. When she prepared holiday feasts, there were always extra guests included who had no family nearby. Irene worked for Grant County Social Services and in the hospitality industry. She enjoyed helping those who needed a friendly smile, a home-cooked meal, and a little assistance. Irene loved children and had a daycare in her home for many years. She enjoyed dancing, playing cards, bowling, doing puzzles, and had a great sense of humor.
Irene will be deeply missed by her children, Hal Hermann, Asheville, NC, Cindy (Farley) Ternes, Flasher, ND, Cheryl (Gary) Braun, Garrison, ND, Wes Eggers, Twin Bridges, MT; grandchildren, Joan (Adam) Stoeckle, Nick Hermann, Lisa (John) Aldrich, Rocky (Cindee) Hulm, Kyle (Becky) Ternes, Karmen (Brad) Steffan, Jesse (April) Braun, Kristin (Mark) Leingang, Tanner (Fiancé Ericka) Eggers, Tracen (Fiancé Skiela) Eggers; 20 great-grandchildren; sisters, Arlene Arndt, Bismarck, ND, Violet (Neal) Monson, Delores (Leo) Schneider, both of Fargo, ND.
