Irene era una madre dedicada y una esposa muy amorosa. Atesoraba a sus hijos, nietos y bisnietos, disfrutaba pasar cada momento con ellos. Le encantaba especialmente su papel como mamá Irene. Ella siempre hizo que la gente se sintiera cómoda. Hizo amistades a donde quiera que ella iba, Y en la tienda la Mexicana sus clientes disfrutaban saborear sus comidas escuchar sus consejos y anécdotas que ella siempre tenia para contar, ella siempre tenia algo agradable que decir sobre todos. Cocinar era su pasión también le gustaba ver telenovelas con su marido, pero lo que verdaderamente disfrutaba era ver el futbol de su equipo favorito El Santos Laguna con su familia.
