Ilene was born on March 23, 1933 in Lang, SK. The eldest sibling of two sets of twins. She left home at 16 to work in Regina as a waitress and a nurse’s aide. In 1952 she married Ronald Klein. They lived and worked in Regina but enjoyed many happy times at the cottage Ron built at Katepwa Lake. A decade later they were blessed to welcome Sharon and four years later Daniel completed their family. Sadly, Ron passed a little over a year later.
Ilene met and married Peter Thauberger in 1971, they continued living in Regina and later moved to Lang, SK. After Peter passed, she then moved to Weyburn, SK. She enjoyed painting, gardening, flowers, baking, cooking and socializing with friends but family was everything to Mom.
We would like to thank the nursing staff at Tatagwa View for the care and support they provided Mom in the last years of her life.
