Inez Carlson, 94

| December 22, 2021 1:00 AM

Inez passed away peacefully on Nov. 27. Inez was born in Lisbon, North Dakota, to Edward and Martha Seelig. She was one of six Seelig children. Her father passed away suddenly when the children were very young. Her mother later married Fred Olson and together they had three children.

In 1948 Inez married Don Carlson from nearby Oakes, North Dakota. They decided to make Montana their home, moving eight years later to Rudyard and then on to Whitefish in 1962. Don and Inez were blessed with a daughter Susan in 1951 and son Steven in 1959.

Inez loved to socialize and spent 50-plus years as a very active member of the Whitefish Women of the Moose. She also enjoyed being a part of Red Hats, Friendship Club, Whitefish Senior Center and spending hours playing cards with friends.

Inez worked part-time for several years at the Whitefish Coast to Coast alongside her husband.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Don, daughter Susan Green and seven of her siblings. She is survived by her brother Marvin Olson of Valley City, North Dakota; son Steven (Suellen) Carlson of Whitefish and their children Trevor (Cara) Carlson of Great Falls and Tyler (Julia) Carlson of Florence; granddaughter Stephanie (Shane) Ford of Havre; nine great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews who were very dear to her.

Inez had several wonderful neighbors and friends who were a tremendous help the last 11 years after the passing of her husband. At this time there is no service planned.
