Irma was born on February 7th, 1928, the only daughter and the youngest of four to Edward and Florence Bennett on a farm in Glasford, south of Orion, Alberta. She received the majority of her education at Pakowki School and Alexandra High School in Medicine Hat. She married Albert Mack on October 13th, 1948. Albert and Irma and later their son, Gerald, operated a successful farm in the Ranchville area. Irma was an active member of the Orion W.I. and an excellent cook, winning many awards for her baking. In 1988, Albert and Irma moved to Medicine Hat, but still continued participating in the farming activities for a few years until they fully retired. They enjoyed socializing with their many friends and became devoted members of Victory Lutheran Church. Irma continued to live in her home even after Albert’s passing in 1996, being with friends, attending community functions and participating in the activities of Victory Lutheran Church. Irma moved from her home to Chinook Village in 2013 when her health began to deteriorate and only recently moved to the Good Samaritan Society’s Southridge Village.
