My heart is so sad for Imogene’s loving family who are hurting today, but also rejoicing for her journey forward into the arms of Jesus & a sweet reunion with Uncle Harold! My fondest memory is the discovery of one of her love languages...we’d often swap cooking stories in the kitchen. She was a great cook (I am not). I’d share a favorite food of mine & it would mysteriously be part of the menu sometime during our visit. It was alway a delight to see my Mom & her brother together and great competitive fun partnering with Ima against them playing card games. Miss her and so wish the “times” would have allowed us to be there! Our hearts & prayers are with you all. —Terry Dietrich

Imogene was a good neighbor. We really missed her when she sold her house and moved to Silver Palms. We are sorry that we couldn't visit her more because of the COVID 19. Larry and Sally Vickroy
