KLINE, Irene Katherine

KLINE, Irene Katherine

Irene Katherine Kline (nee Pipke) - Irene Katherine Kline passed away peacefully on July 3, 2015 at the age 89 years following a brief illness. Irene was born on October 7, 1926 in Three Hills Alberta to Otilla and William Pipke. When Irene and her twin sister Lorraine were born their mother was very ill and the twins were so small and weak there were fears that the newborn babies would not survive. It was decided that children's maternal grandmother, Margaret Wegium would raise Irene. Thanks to the nurturing of Margaret and two special aunts, Martha and Edith, Irene not only survived but thrived. Although Irene was raised by her maternal grandmother she remained close to her eight siblings, all being raised in Torrington, Alberta. Irene worked on family farms in the Torrington and Wimborne areas during spring planting and harvest season and helped her grandmother and her aunts in their home and garden. It is during this time that Irene learned the love of gardening. On February 3, 1948, Irene married the love of her life Warren Kline, she and Warren moved to the Kline family homestead where they spent their lives and where they raised their daughter Margaret (Margy). Even though Warren and Irene were busy on the family farm, raising cattle and growing grain crops they still had time to become ardent fans and volunteers of the Olds Grizzlys Junior A Hockey team and to support and cheer on their daughter Margy and the many sports teams that Margy was a member including the Ladies baseball team and Olds Maddames Hockey and in later years Irene was a common sight behind the glass watching Margy and her curling teams. Every Spring Irene patiently waited for the snow to disappear and the danger of frost to end so she could plant her garden. During the growing season visitors to the Kline farm would head home with baskets filled with fresh vegetables from Irene's garden. Irene's love of gardening was second to her love of felines, many orphaned barn kittens and injured cats found their way into the house thanks to Irene and her nurturing spirit. Her many kittens and adult cats kept her company in the years after Warren's passing as Margy was busy with the many farm chores. Irene was predeceased by her parents, her grandmother and her husband Warren (2003) as well as her brother, George, twin sister Lorraine and sister Isabel. She is survived by her daughter Margy; brothers Al, Arnold, Paul, Harley; sister Verna and sister-in-law Alice Park as well as numerous nieces and nephews. In keeping with Irene's wishes, a graveside service took place on July 10, 2015 at the Olds Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes may be made to the charity of choice. Heartland Funeral Services Ltd., Olds entrusted with arrangements. 403-507-8610 www.heartlandfuneralservices.com 1j22c ~
