Irene worked at different times for Wilson''s Packaging Plant over her life, but she mainly stayed at home to raise their family. She loved being with all of her family and it was usually during those times that they played some very competitive card games. She was an avid reader and enjoyed all types of flowers. Traveling to California and Las Vegas with her family was always a great time and an enjoyable trip.

She is survived by her two sons, Dennis (Marcia) Sterling and Bruce (Linda) Sterling, both of Faribault; by five grandchildren, Scott Sterling, Todd (Laura) Sterling, Leslie Sterling, Brent (Kari) Sterling and Anne (Bren) Archambault; by 11 great grandchildren; by her sister-in-law, Doris St. Martin of Faribault and by nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, grandson, Gary Sterling in infancy, great granddaughter, Abby Sterling, two sisters, Doris "Midge" Vogen and Delores "Sis" Sweeney and by three brothers, Bernard, Donald "Tuffy" and Clifford St. Martin.
