She was a member of the Alpha Phi Sorority. She married Dallas Joe Warner on May 5, 1951 and lived in Lodi for the past 66 years.
Irene enjoyed playing and listening to music, reading, sewing, knitting and cross-stitch projects, traveling, and the rain. She was a member of the Lodi United Methodist Church, and was involved at various times with Gray Ladies, Cub Scouts, Literary Club, Bridge Club, and Stitch-n-Bitch.

On the front of her refrigerator is a quote from Robert Frost: "In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: It goes on." Another of her favorites: "Life isn't about waiting for the storms to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain." She will be greatly missed by many.
