Irene was born in International Falls, Minnesota on July 21st, 1924 to Susan Dean Halgrimson, She moved to Portland, Oregon where her only child, Sharon Anne was born to her and Patrick Flanagan. The family relocated to Sparks, Nevada and following Pat's passing and subsequently raising her daughter as a single mom, Irene followed her heart and career to San Francisco in the early 70s, where she worked at Pacific Telephone Company until her retirement in 1982.
