Irene Mick was born in Powassan, Ontario. She was educated in Ottawa and at the Renfrew Collegiate before graduating from Riverdale Hospital. Irene worked at Toronto General Hospital for nine years before joining the RCAMC in 1939.

During World War II, Irene and her sister Delta served in England, North Africa and Italy with number 15 Canadian General Hospital. Arriving in England in 1940 they were stationed at Bramshott, Surrey in a 1000 bed military hospital. They cared for soldiers wounded at Dieppe in 1942. In 1943 the sisters went to El Arrouche, North Africa with their unit. The RCAMC had set up a tent hospital that was taking casualties from the Sicilian campaign. The sisters were also skilled in the treatment of infectious diseases from their training at the Riverdale Isolation Hospital. They were able to use this expertise when an outbreak of smallpox amongst the British soldiers occurred. The sisters were then based in Caserta, Italy, nursing casualties from the Italian campaign. The sisters returned to Canada in 1945.

Irene died in 1995.
