Irene was born on April 17, 1929, in Spencer, the daughter of Myron and Sophia (Hupe) Foth. She attended Brighton Country School, worked as a babysitter and later worked at the Dairybelt in Spencer. On June 10, 1950, Irene was united in marriage to Delmer Toltzman at Trinity Lutheran Church in Spencer.

She was a loving and caring Mother who enjoyed doing the simple things in life. Irene liked helping others, especially her family. She especially enjoyed playing games, making crafts, quilting, knitting, crocheting and sewing (she made all of her children’s clothes). Irene had a big garden and canned for the family every year. She was a wonderful cook and baker and loved baking for her grandchildren. Irene had many different talents.

Irene is survived by her husband, Delmer; five children, Cheryl (Gene) Knoll, Medford, Carla (Don) Dommer, David (Jean), Duane and Dean Toltzman, all of Spencer; seven grandchildren, Melissa (Ryan) Pilgrim, Jonathan (Molly) and Christopher Knoll all of Medford, Stacy (Jeff) Diedrich, Marathon, Nicholas (Kayann Kalepp) Dommer, Joshua (Tiffany Esser) and Sierra Toltzman, Spencer; great-grandchildren, Madisyn, Aliyah and Treyton Pilgrim, Medford, Carleigh and baby Diedrich, Marathon, Brady and Kinsley Kalepp, Spencer. She is further survived by her siblings, Bobby Foth, Belvidere, Ill., Ardene Caswell, Milwaukee, Dennis (Gayle) and Russell (Ann) Foth, both of Spencer; a sister-in-law, Emily Johnson, Spencer; nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Myron and Sophia; and a brother, Armin Foth.
