Our family moved in '69 to a 148 acre homestead on the North Fork of the Coeur D'alene river. The youngest of us attended the one room schoolhouse in Murray Idaho for the first 3 grades.
Ilsa had a wonderful laugh. The best times it lead to laughing so hard you ran out of breath, causing her to snort, leading to another round of laughs until tears streamed down the side of your face. Growing up, her favorite and most protective pet was Pepper, a spaniel poodle mix. One Christmas, Pepper tried to save her from her new pair of super fluffy blue slippers.
Ilsa graduated from Wallace High School 1985. Was a student at NIC in Coeur d'alene. Ilsa met her future husband Christopher Burmeister, at the Enaville Resort. They were married in 1987 and had 2 children Douglas and Samantha (grandbaby Abbi).
Ilsa was diagnosed with glioblastoma this July and was embraced by the light Dec 2nd, she was 56. Without Ilsa, the world is a much smaller place.
