Ilene Hough

Ilene Oster Hough was born to George and Emma Oster at Ismay, Montana on November 2, 1925 and passed away at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Billings, Montana on April 19, 2017. She was raised on the family ranch/farm at Ismay, Montana. She had nine siblings. She attended Cottonwood School through the eighth grade.

On June 6, 1947 she married Victor Hough in Miles City, Montana. They had two daughters, Linda and Vicky. Nothing was more important to her than her family. She was a stay at home MOM!!!!

Ilene was a volunteer at Holy Rosary Extended Care and RSVP playing bingo with the residents and very active with Relay For Life. She was a devout Christian and a long-standing active member of the Presbyterian Church and Deborah Circle. She helped with making many quilts for under privileged children and the Country Store. She devoted countless hours to the church’s prayer chain.

Ilene enjoyed fishing, camping, playing cards and having friends and family over for meals.

Ilene lovingly devoted her life to acts of service to others and without a doubt left this world in a better place. Her beautiful spirit will live on in the many lives that she touched.
