She pursued her dream of becoming a Registered Nurse and entered the Nursing Program at the College of the Sequoias. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1979. Irene worked as a Registered and Administrative Nurse for 30 years in the Visalia and Porterville area.

She enjoyed her family time together and traveling.

Irene is survived by her husband David Martinez; four sisters; three brothers and numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
