Irene, the daughter of Herman and Elizabeth (Behrens) Buelt was born on April 6, 1922 in Roselle, Iowa. After completing her education in Halbur, Iowa, she attended the Iowa School of Cosmetology in Des Moines, Iowa. On June 28, 1954, Irene was united in marriage to Raymond Beckman at St. Augustine Catholic Church in Halbur. The couple made their home in Carroll where Irene worked as a cosmetologist. Irene enjoyed her job, her clients were not only her customers, they were also her friends. Frequently, after she styled someone’s hair, they would sit down for a cup of coffee and just talk. She also loved baking, taking walks, supporting the Chicago Cubs, playing cards, shopping, traveling across the United States, and visiting her children and grandchildren. She was also an active member of Catholic Daughters of the Americas. But her greatest love was her family. Left to celebrate Irene’s life are her three children and their families: Mark Beckman and his wife, Gail, of Charlottesville, VA; their son, Evan (Shelly) Beckman, and their daughters , Morgan and Lydia, of Winston-Salem, NC, and their daughter, Lauren (Evan) Harding, and their sons, Hayes and Wells, of Richmond, VA; Lori Elder and her husband, George, of Charlottesville, VA; their daughter, Megan (Chris) Downey, and their children, Aiden and Charlotte, of Ruckersville, VA; their daughter, Ashley (Dan) Quinn, and their daughter, Kinley, of Warrington, PA, and their daughter, Kara (Jeff) Barton, of Richmond, VA; Scott Beckman and his wife, Teresa, of Grayslake, IL; and their children, Ray Beckman of Chicago, IL, Lexi Beckman of Grayslake, IL, and Jack Beckman of Grayslake, IL. Also surviving are her sisters-in law, Virginia Buelt of Waltham, MN, and Katie Buelt of Pittsville, WI; as well as many nieces, nephews, and other extended relatives.
