Stene – Ida
1946 - 2020
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Ida Mary Stene, late of Shellbrook, announce her peaceful passing on January 12, 2020, in the Shellbrook Hospital at the age of 73 years. Ida was born at her home near Debden on October 16, 1946, where she grew up with her 3 sisters and 5 brothers. In her late teens, she moved to Shellbrook to work in a restaurant where she met her husband Garney, who she was married to for 53 years. They purchased an acreage in 1975 and there they raised their two children Blaine and Marlene. Around the same time, they bought Stene Transport and ran that for most of their life. Ida worked at various places in Shellbrook over the years, the last two being the Shop Rite and the Golf Course. She retired and enjoyed being at home to watch tv, listen to music and have many visits with all her family. Ida loved to watch sports and played many over the years such as softball, bowling, and curling. Ida was a loving wife, mother and grandmother who will be deeply missed by everyone.
Ida is lovingly survived by her husband, Garnet Stene; her children, Blaine (Michelle) Stene and their children, Randy, Kelli and Brandon; Marlene Dahl (Shawn) and their children, Jared and Braeden; her siblings, Lillian (Orville) Hinson; Ann (Richard) Bezdietny; Marcel (Ann) Arcand; Simone (Emil) Handfield; and Fred (Karen) Arcand; and her sister-in-law Margaret Roode; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives.
Ida was predeceased by, her father, Dumas Arcand; her mother Bella Arcand; her brothers Bruno Arcand, Edward Arcand, and Frank Arcand; her parents-in-law, Victor and Agnes Stene; her brothers-in-law Warner Stene and Mervin Roode; and her sister-in-law Linda Stene.
There will be a private family service held at a later date. In lieu of tributes, memorial donations may be made in memory of Ida to either the Shellbrook & Districts Health Services Foundation or to the Shellbrook Hidden Hills Golf Club or to Lung Association of Saskatchewan.
