We feel so blessed to have known Irma. We met her when our daughter, Angela, was taking piano lessons from her next-door neighbor. We’ve missed Irma since she moved back to New York. We treasure the many happy memories from Angela’s 17th birthday with “Elvis” to seeing the musical “Forever Plaid”. We saw a Red Skelton impersonator and watched Angela’s horseback riding lessons. Irma and Angela shared a love of roses. So, Irma would wrap one of her beautiful homegrown roses in a wet paper towel and aluminum foil for Angela after our visit. She loved God and the USA. We’ll always remember her fun personality, the way she’d laugh with abandon and always said it the way she saw it. She loved her family and was so proud of them. We’re so glad we were able to share life with Irma. She was a very special lady. We send our condolences to the family.
