    I worked with Imo many years ago at Ben Franklin, and she, Mary Ed and my Mother-in-law lived in Sarah Moore’s apt. house on Washington St.. Imo was one of the sweetest, kindest and most compassionate ladies I have ever known. Everyone loved her and I truly believe she loved everybody. My deepest sympathy in your loss, but I know she is in heaven smiling and enjoying life there, as she did on earth! Sincerely, Carolyn

    My condolences to the family. My mother June Wallace worked with Imo many years ago. She always teased me about us not having sisters and that we would be sisters. From that day forward…we always called each other sister. I loved Imo and I know she is happy in Heaven with her Saviour. What a reunion she is having with those that have gone on before her. I’ve loved her all my life and miss her, yet am happy she is with the Lord.
