Irene Edna Blush

March 14, 1926 — December 29, 2019

Irene Edna Blush, age 93, peacefully passed on December 29, 2019 at St. Joseph Hospital in Polson, MT.

She was born March 14, 1926 in Keystone, MT near Alberton, to Martin and Edna Schleip. Irene was the 2nd youngest of 10 children. She also played on one of the first girl’s high school basketball teams in St. Ignatius, MT. Irene was married to Robert (Bob) Blush for 49 years and together they raised Kenny, Bobby, Jim and Peggy.

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

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.

Irene is survived by her son’s 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 thirteen great grandchildren.

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’s wishes were to be cremated and buried by her husband in St. Ignatius. Services will be held at a later date.
