Imogene Menchhofer
Imogene Lois (Canary) Menchhofer, 80, of Celina, went to be in God's care at 6:25 p.m. April 6, 2013, from the St. Marys Living Center.
She was born Sept. 23, 1932, near Rockford, to Lloyd and Zedna Boice Canary.
On May 19, 1951, she married the love of her life, Cletus Jr. Menchhofer, who died in July 2006.
Surviving are her children, Doug (Sheila) Menchhofer of Celina, Shirley (Dennis) Kunk of Celina, Marilyn (Rex) Ferguson of Celina, Richard Menchhofer of Coldwater and Brenda Menchhofer of Celina; 13 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; and sisters Janice Bowlby and Letha Hight, both of Celina; sister-in-law, Marjorie Canary of Celina; and brother-in-law, Harold Painter of Rockford.
She was preceded in death by her sons, Dennis Menchhofer, twin sons Donald and Ronald Menchhofer, and an infant baby son; brother Darlene Canary; sister Naomi Painter; and brothers-in-law Clarence Bowlby and Elmer Hight.
She graduated from Rockford High School in 1950. She played the trumpet in the Rockford high school band and for special occasions later in life. She was integral throughout the family farm operations with her husband, raising Simmental Cattle and planting the straightest rows in Mercer County.
She was a member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Coldwater and the Lutheran Woman's Group at the church. She will be dearly missed by her family and friends.
