After graduating high school and beauty school, she worked as a beautician until 1949 when she married Leo and moved to Chicago. Before her move to the Joliet area 5 years ago, she was an active member of Queen of the Universe Parish, where she served as a lector and the daily Mass song leader. Both Irene and Leo were committed to Catholic education. Their five children have spent a combined 66 years in Catholic schools.
In lieu of flowers or Masses, the family would appreciate memorials be made to Jordan Catholic School or Alleman High School.
