Irene Edna Blush, 93, peacefully passed on Dec. 29, 2019 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Polson.

She was born March 14, 1926 in Keystone, near Alberton, to Martin and Edna Schleip. Irene was the second youngest of 10 children.

She also played on one of the first girl’s high school basketball teams in St. Ignatius. Irene was married to Robert (Bob) Blush for 49 years and together they raised Kenny, Bobby, Jim and Peggy.

She was well known for her sense of humor and her baking. Everyone loved grandma’s cinnamon rolls and cookies. She also enjoyed gardening, playing cards and took wonderful care of her grandchildren throughout the years.

Cozy is the word that describes being around grandma Irene. There was magic in grandma’s touch, and sunshine in her smile. There was love in everything she did to make our lives worthwhile.

Irene was preceded in death by her husband Bob, her son Bobby Blush, and all of her siblings.

Irene is survived by her sons Kenny Blush (Dana), Jim Blush (Brenda), daughter Peggy Freshour (Dave), grandchildren Jeannette Toole, Kimberly Blush (TJ), Jim Udall (Alicia), Lara Blush, Randy Freshour, Carly Scherbenske (Dale), Dusty Blush, and 13 great-grandchildren.

Irene’s wishes were to be cremated and buried by her husband in St. Ignatius.

Services will be held at a later date. Memories and condolences may be sent to the family at www.thelakefuneralhomeandcremation.com.

Arrangements are under the direction of The Lake Funeral Home and Crematory.
