She was educated in Waterboro and spent most of her life living in Waterboro and Shapleigh. In 1970, she married her late husband, Sidney Sprague.Mrs. Sprague was a very happy person with a good sense of humor. She enjoyed playing bingo, walking on the beach and cooking. She was known for the wonderful donuts and biscuits that she would make for her family and her friends. She was a very kind and loving woman who was referred to by many of the local children as either Ma Sprague or Grammy Sprague because of her caring and maternal nature. Irma learned to read late in life. She was motivated to do this by the desire to be able to sit and read stories to her grandson. Riding around in her power wheel chair was always a fun thing for Irma to do. She often treated it more like a four-wheeler than a wheel chair.
