She married Roy Carsten Meyer (1898-1965) 12 September 1919 in St. John's Lutheran Church, Lake City, Minnesota, United States. Ancestors are from Germany.


Her parents were strong members of the local church, St. John's Lutheran. She was confirmed on March 7, 1916.

Education and teaching career

Irene received a college education in the early 1900's. She graduated from Winona State Teachers College with a teaching license and began to teach school near her home town of Lake City soon after. Her teaching career was marred by anti-German sentiments as WWI began. She was a first generation American raised in a primarily German community. In 1918 she was accused of making pro-German statements in her classroom by three of her students, ages 11, 12 and 15 and resigned as the charges were investigated.[1] source

Soon after, she married and began a family of her own.
