Irene began selling Mary Kay Makeup and Michelle Lynn Jewellery, as well as taking in numerous borders from teachers to entertainers.

As well as being an amazing cook, she was very musical and taught herself to play numerous instruments; her favourites being the piano, organ and accordian. Making sure to finish with “Goodnight Irene” as her closing song every time she played.
