On August 2, 1941, she formally entered the Felician Sisters of the Mother of Good Counsel Province in Chicago.

An educator most of her life, Sister Irene taught in grade schools in Illinois, Wisconsin, Alabama, California and Oklahoma. Sister also served as principal at Sacred Heart and St. Joseph Schools in Pomona, CA, and St. Margaret Mary School in San Antonio, TX.

He attended Lew Wallace Elementary, Lincoln Junior High, and graduated from Albuquerque High School in 1948. After graduating high school, Benny went to California for a short time before he received a job offer to work at Sandia National Laboratories, where he worked for almost 34 years. While working at Sandia, he was drafted and proudly served in the U. S. Army during the Korean War. His service was then bridged and he returned to work at Sandia. Shortly afterwards, while working full-time, he completed his Bachelor's of Business Administration at St. Joseph's College (later known as the University of Albuquerque). He was married to Anna Maria Lujan in 1959 and they had celebrated 54 years of marriage August 8, 2013. He was very active in raising his four children and years later, was also a great influence in his grandchildren's lives. He was quite athletic and had played on baseball teams, basketball teams, won awards while on bowling teams, won awards for table tennis, played tennis, and golfed. He also was a softball umpire for a number of years. He later was afflicted with Parkinson's Disease in his late 60s, and handled that with courage and grace. In 2004, he was the fifth person in Albuquerque to have Deep Brain Stimulation Surgery (DBS) which gave him some improved quality of life for a number of years. He can now, in heaven, run freely. He was a strong, quiet man and admired by many, especially his family who loved him deeply.
