      Irene Berenter Sherman, 89, a longtime Washington real estate agent, died Aug. 12 of cancer at her home in the District.

She was a precinct captain for Community Chest, a Girl Scout troop leader, a Cub Scout den mother and president of home and school associations at Lafayette Elementary School and Alice Deal Junior High School.
