Ilse met Royce Jensen Sr. a US Army service member and was married June 9, 1958 in Germany and had one son born on an Army base there in 1959. She then came to the United States later in that year as a young bride knowing no English and here she bore four more children and worked in the family meat business. Ilse and Royce later divorced, and Ilse then went on to work at Bryants Custom Packing Plant in Burley, Idaho and later met and married Josef Schoepp of Rupert and gained two more sons in the process.
