Irene Erickson

Irene Anderson Erickson was born on Aug. 30, 1931, to Hans and Inga Anderson. She left this earthly life on Nov. 17, 2023.

In Glendive Mont., on June 8, 1948, she married Adrine “Boots” Erickson and to this union were born four children: Bruce, David, Douglas and Elaine.

Her life was exemplified by her unwavering faith in Jesus. Reading and studying her Bible was the cornerstone of her life. Her testimony and love for Jesus attracted people, of all ages, for her to mentor and guide.

Her backyard was her sanctuary. She loved all the birds that would visit her yard — feeding the blue jays their daily peanuts. Every year, she tended to her flowers and planted and harvested her garden.

Our family would like to thank all the nurses and providers at Trinity Hospital for the loving care given mom over the past couple of years. A very heartfelt thank you to Dr Zilkoski. Your kindness and friendship was something that mom treasured. We would also like to extend a heart of gratitude for those who visited Mom while she was at home — your visits brightened her day. To all who referred to her as “Grandma Irene,” she cherished your visits and phone calls.

She was predeceased by her husband, “Boots”; son, David; and grandson, Brad Erickson.

She is survived by her sons, Bruce (Tamara) and Douglas (Rosanne); daughter, Elaine (Jeff) Long; five grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren.

Mom, you fought the good fight and, by the Grace of God, you finished well. We love and miss you.

A viewing will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 24, at Clayton Stevenson Memorial Chapel. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, Nov. 25, at 11 a.m. at the Gospel Fellowship Church.
