A lifelong resident of Albuquerque, Irene attended Albuquerque High School and worked for APS, Amity and Intel. Irene was an animal lover and was devoted to her family. She always found a way to make people feel loved, to help them and to make them laugh and smile. Despite many hardships throughout her life, her faith was incredibly strong and inspiring.
