Irene Bair grew up 1/4 mile away on the adjoining quarter section of homestead land from her future husband Ken Welsh. She and Ken both attended Sleepy Hollow School in the 1920's. they married and raised 7 children who scattered across the country, except for Don, who stayed on the homestead to see it through to a 100 year farm celebration in 1908. Irene was a gifted artist and crafts person, designing the town of Milk River logo among many others. She was instrumental in getting the History Book for Milk River written and published (along with other volunteers from the community). She could drive a truck or combine during harvest and still have a quality meal on the table for supper. While never being a smoker, she still contacted lung cancer and succumbed to that affliction.
