Location Unknown

Not much is known about Irma's life before or as the outbreak began, apart from having been married to Dale for years. Early in their marriage, they had attempted to have a baby, but it ultimately miscarried, which led them to not try again.

Later, she developed cancer. Despite Dale bringing her to several doctors, she had already accepted the disease and her eventual death. Once Dale retired from his job, he planned on traveling with Irma across the country in a new RV he bought, but she died before that could happen, which devastated him.
