Little is known about Irma, as she has long been deceased by the start of The Sims 2. She is most well known as the only example of an unused hairstyle named "beehive hairdo" that was originally planned as an option for female Sims, but was scrapped before the release of the game. There was a similar hairstyle in The Sims, which was blonde and named "The Puff". According to Irma's SimDNA in SimPE, her hair was red before it turned grey. Her name may be a pun on im-a oldie.
Irma is known to be the wife of Myron Oldie, and the two are deceased before the start of The Sims 2. They have a son, Herb, who, along with his wife, Coral, is available in Pleasantview's family bin at the start of The Sims 2. Herb and Coral are the adoptive parents of Mary-Sue Pleasant, who is Irma's granddaughter.
