Aileen Metcalf passed away in the loving arms of her daughter at their Pasadena home on September 22, 2022. She lived her life dedicated to the belief that loving God and serving people should be the chief aim in one’s life and labored to instill these values in all who knew her. She was born March 7, 1931, in Pablo Montana and will be laid to rest near there on November 3, 2022.
Aileen graduated from Stadium High School in Tacoma Washington and honed her craft as an executive assistant which began in the New York FBI fingerprinting division. She served a short period of time as a Tribal judge and then later in life she devoted herself to missionary work including several years in France. She loved being in nature, and spending time with others, especially a rousing game of Scrabble or Pinochle. She was a die-hard Dodgers and Notre Dame fan and is probably yelling at the game officials from her heavenly easy chair.
Aileen is survived by her sister Patti Dudley, her nephew Ron Steele, and her children: Stephen Kennedy, Michael Kennedy, Kateri Mattila, Billy Metcalf, Marc Metcalf, Annie Lynn Wasson, and Brenda Metcalf Bach. She was blessed with ten grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren, and countless spiritual sons and daughters.
Aileen’s life will be celebrated on Thursday, November 3, 2022 at 10:00 am at New Life Christian Center in Polson, MT. A burial to follow at Beauvais-Decker Cemetery.
