Woman Irene Bjustrom is another of Algona's busy housewives. When she and her husband, Quinten, retired from active farming two years ago and moved into their newly remodeled and redecorated home at 322 West Nebraska Street, she did not stop doing all the things she enjoys most. Instead, it gave her a little more free time to actively participate. Born at Fairfield, Iowa, she came to Algona with her parents as a child. A graduate of the Algona High School at the age of 17, Irene had taken Normal Training in school, but could not receive her teaching certificate until she was 18. It was on the sixth day of January the next year that Miss Irene Mitchell became the new teacher at the Delos Gardner school which was located 4 1/2 miles west of the present Smith Lake. She had 12 pupils, with all but two of the grades represented and received $75 a month. Her salary reached $85 a month during the four years she taught here, including the year after she and Quinten were married. Years later when the country schools were sold, hers went to the Charles Scotts of Hurt who made it into their home and it still stands there. The Bjustrom s started their married life on the William Nelson farm which was located west of the Civic Center and lived there for five years. Those were the days of the,depression and cash rent, but with the prevailing drought, they had difficulty in raising enough crops to get the $150 in cash to pay their rent. The sows were sold for $6 a head and corn for 8£ a bushel. At these prices, the money doesn't count up very rapidly. From here they moved to the Dau farm north of Algona on Highway 169 and lived there for 15 years. After that they moved a short way north on the farm from which they retired 17 years later. Irene and her husband have two daughters and she thoroughly enjoys sewing for their five grandchildren. She has been a 4-H leader, Sunday school teacher and was a member of the Good Hope United Methodist Church choir until 1963. She is president of the Womens Society and financial secretary of the church, as well as an active member of the Order of Eastern Star. She has crocheted ponchos from yarn for the .little girls and even accomplished the crocheted vests for them. Her most recent hobby is playing the Hammond Organ, a pastime she finds most relaxing. It really makes no difference what job is at hand, this lady just "rolls up her sleeves" and gets it done.
