She was a stay at home mom, enjoying cooking, especially baking, knitting, crocheting, sewing, oil painting, embroidery, stained glass and quilt making. At Christmas she made Scandinavian dishes that were a tradition in Oscar’s family.

In 1987 Ileene went to work for Ron Bach at the Gambles store. After the store closed in 1993 she went to work for Ron and Bev Wilts at True Value Hardware. She was employed there until retirement in 2012.
