Irwin Haily Bird was born in 1915, seven months after he father's death. She was given his name, Irwin, as her first name, a fact that she always hated. Her middle name, Haily, came from the doctor who delivered her, Dr. Hailman, and she went by it her entire life, though always having to correct others' spelling of it.
She survived a great amount of loss in her life. Besides losing her father before her birth, she buried her fist husband and three daughters, two of whom died in infancy.
She married Loren Paul Ireton about 1934; he died in 1947. She had three sons by him. She married Clifford Dale Snavely in 1949, whom she divorced in 1950, having a daughter by him. She married Richard Rock in 1951 and remained with him until her death in 1961. He adopted her daughter from her previous marriage, and they had two sons together.
She was critically injured and severely brain damaged in an automobile accident in November 1961, an accident caused by a drunken driver who left the scene of the accident and was never caught. Remaining in a coma for five weeks, Haily died on Christmas Eve 1961, and was buried on Boxing Day, the 26th.
