  1. Rolf and Ilene were our neighbors When we lived in Hudson Wisconsin. We had an inground pool in our backyard, and we had a gate in the fence between our yards so that Rolf and Ilene could come and swim with us. They were right next-door to us, and we watched their children grow as they saw ours grow. I’ve never known a lovelier person than Ilene. We moved to Florida in 1984. They came to Florida and visited us after we moved. I have a picture of all of us at the beach in Clearwater. We visited them on a trip up north a few years ago, and I’m so glad We got to see them both. May sweet Ilene Rest In Peace.

  2. Though separated by distance for many decades, we wish to honor Ilene, our first cousin, with our prayers and memories of long ago. She was always a cheerful, kind woman. May God provide strength and comfort to her family, and may Ilene rest in peace. Bill and Barb Hanley, Tucson AZ
