Obituary of Irene Ester Dorothia Lindseth (nee Wetthuhn)

Irene Lindseth passed away peacefully on Wednesday March 13, 2024, at the Killam Long Term Care facility at the age of 98 years. She was eight days short of celebrating her 99th birthday.

Irene was born on March 21, 1925 to parents Gust and Emma Wetthuhn and was raised on the family farm along with her five siblings. 

On July 23, 1948, Irene married a local farmer, Laurits Lindseth and enjoyed life on the farm. Over the years their family grew, and they had three children: Christine, Wade and Crystal.

Irene loved working outside with the animals, especially her horses. She enjoyed quilting, gardening and although she didn’t enjoy cooking, she was an excellent cook. Everyone loved her homemade buns, lefse and perogies the best. She was always quick to volunteer and help when needed and spent many hours in the kitchen baking goodies for Providence Place fundraisers, where she lived for 18 years. Family always came first and everyone was appreciative of her many gifts.

Irene is survived by her daughter Christine (Hugh) Palmer and family: Rob (Laurie) Palmer, Brenden and Sarah; Rhonda (Stacy Phillips) Palmer; son Wade (Kathy) Lindseth and family: Lee-Ann (Bryan) Zimmer, Kelsey, Alyssa, Paige and Erika; Doug (Cassidy) Lindseth, Dean and Quinn; Lori Lindseth and Danika Whitehead; daughter Crystal Palmer and boys: Lee (Felicia) Palmer, Henley and Lennon; Kasey (Hope) Palmer and Cheyenne; Matthew (Sydney Kelndorfer) Palmer; two sisters-in-law: Margaret Wetthuhn and Meta Lindseth; plus numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Laurits and all her siblings.

As per Irene’s wishes there will be no service and she will be laid to rest with her husband Laurits at a later date.

If desired, memorial donations in Irene’s name can be made to Providence Place in Daysland Alberta.

Thank you to the doctors, nurses and the entire staff at the Killam Auxiliary Hospital for the wonderful care and support she received during her time there and also a huge heartfelt thanks to Laurie Palmer at Hanna Funeral Services for taking care of all of the final arrangements.
