    I am saddened to hear that you have lost such a generous and loving woman. My memories of my 3 years with all of you will always make me smile and I hope that your memories will also bring you comfort. Maybe knowing that your dad has been reunited with Imogene will bring you some peace.

    To all of Imogene’s family, especially her sisters, Marilyn and Betty, and brother, Jack. My love and prayers are with you during your loss. My heart is rejoicing, however, to picture her meeting her Lord and being reunited with other family members. What a homecoming that must be!!! She was one fantastic, classy lady, and a wonderful Christian witness and prayer warrior. Her smile, her many remembrances to me and my family will always hold a special place in my heart – I thank God for allowing her to be such a blessing in my life and to so many others. I loved her a lot and I will miss her, too. God Bless You all. Love, Patti.

    To all of Imogene’s family. My memories of Imogene go back to my early childhood. She worked at the Reagan Elevator when my dad was the manager back in 1964. I remember her and Earl very well. She was such a sweet lady.
    I now work with Linda Harris at Blue Ridge and we had just talked a couple of weeks ago about going together to visit her. I guess I waited too late. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers but always remember all the good times you had. God bless you all. Julia Aughe

    To Marilyn, Betty, and Jack,

    Imogene treated us like her own children. She loved us, praised us, and supported us. Her passing is a loss to this world, but a GREAT gain to the Kingdom.

    We will always remember her for her positive attitude toward the Frankfort community and how she gave back with her talents. She was a great of example extending herself to others and loving them. We are grateful for her Christ-like model.

    You and your family are in our prayers as you grieve and celebrate Imogene’s life. You are loved!
