She attended the Holcombe Public School until 5th grade and then moved to Cornell, Wisconsin where she graduated from high school in 1941. She attended one year at River Falls State College, after which she worked at Cornell Wood Products Co. for three years as secretary to the office manager. Just before the end of World War II, Irene went to Chicago and worked for the Texas Company for several months, after which she moved back to Cornell and worked for the Cornell Transfer. In June, 1946, she married Melvin Albrecht after he returned from serving in the Army in Europe during World War II. They purchased a home on Riverside Drive and raised their children there. During this time Irene worked as the Cornell High School secretary for 17 years. She was a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Cornell and participated in the Women of St. John’s and the Lutheran Women’s Missionary Society. They remained in Cornell until October, 2005, when they moved to Appleton, Wisconsin.
