They moved back to McCloud in 1959, where they raised their family.

Irene is survived by her husband Ernest and four children, Pam (Terry) Hitchcock of McCloud, Richard (Saskia) Cabitto of Lodi, Lisa Cabitto (Marty) of Red Bluff and Daniel Cabitto (Lisa) of Cottonwood. Irene had a brother Rudy Baiza of Mt. Shasta and sister Marina Baiza of Lincoln. She had ten grandchildren and fifteen great grandchildren.

Irene enjoyed cooking, knitting, crocheting and making quilts. When she wasn't working her crafts, she enjoyed playing bingo. The most important thing in her life was family.
