I am so sorry to here of Imogene’s passing. While attending LTC I worked with her. She was absolutely the most delightful person. I am so glad she came into my life.

Imogene was a very lovely person - kind and generous. I am happy she was a part of my life while I lived in Robinson, Illinois. God Bless her family and friends.
