She also served on the board of directors as secretary for Los Indigenes de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe. Irene graduated from North Dallas High School and loved participating in alumnae activities.

She later graduated from New Mexico State University with an associate degree in Business Administration and retired from her admin position with NMSU in 2019. Irene enjoyed reading, camping, fishing, dancing, and tending to her garden, her many animals, and their pecan orchard. She was a very devoted Dallas Cowboys fan and would often be found cheering for her beloved Cowboys on Sundays.
