Irene was born April 10, 1920, in Bedias, the only child of Ada Jesse and L. E. Stone. She lettered in volleyball at Bowie High School and then went on to graduate from cosmetology school. As a beautician, she operated her own shop for many years in River Oaks. She was a devoted member of River Oaks Baptist Church, teaching Sunday school and harmonizing with a lovely alto voice. She maintained an active lifestyle within her church, among her friends, and traveled extensively. While she enjoyed the adventure of seeing new places, she was just as content playing 42 with her kids and grandkids. After moving to Arlington, she worshipped with her family at Fielder Road Baptist Church where she was blessed by many friends in her small group. The family would like to extend heartfelt gratitude to the caregivers from Isle at Watercrest Memory Care and Envoy Hospice, for their tender care and support.
Irene was preceded in death by her husband, Johnny Solberg, in 1977, whom she married in 1942, and husband, Frank Kaska in 1997, whom she married in 1988.
While she will be greatly missed here on earth, our sadness is tempered knowing the heavens are rejoicing because of her profession of faith according to Romans 10:9, which says, "If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus Is Lord' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."
Survivors: Left with countless precious memories are her children, Alton L. Solberg and wife, Rita, Cynthia Solberg Cross Morris and husband, David; grandchildren, Philip Wayne Solberg, William Alan Cross, Alyson Solberg Zabriskie and husband, Jeff; great-grandchildren, Alyssa Irene, Alayna Pearl and Ashlea Mae Zabriskie; along with a host of family and friends.
