Ilene Josephine Satterlee was born July 20, 1928 to Ingval and Christine (Johnson) Mahlum in Palermo, ND. Ilene was raised on the family farm north of Palermo and graduated high school from Palermo High School with the class of 1945.

Ilene and Kerm’s many years of retirement were spent enjoying summers at the lake home at Paradise Point outside of Williston and winters golfing in either Mesa AZ or Visalia CA. They loved the “snow bird” life style and created many lifetime friends wherever they landed.

Ilene was a unique, sincere and one-of-a-kind wife, mother, mother-in-law and grandmother. Her loving and kind ways always allowed her to make lasting ties to those around her. Family was always very important to Ilene, she especially loved and cherished her daughters-in-law Sheila and Jenny, and grandchildren Cody, Levi, David, Savanha, Kelsey, Daniel, Michael, and Sarah.

Ilene loved playing cards, golfing, baking, and reading. Ilene was known to have a green thumb, she loved plants and could make anything grow and flourish. She enjoyed her many friends in Kenmare, Stanley, Williston, and Mesa. Ilene was especially fond of the many friends at Paradise Point.
