Irma was a gentle, faith-filled woman with a heart of gold. She had the ability to befriend anyone she met and holds a special place in countless hearts. Irma spent the greater part of her life ensuring that those around her were healthy and happy.
She enjoyed spending her time outdoors on their farm, caring for the animals and conversing with family and friends on the front porch. She and her husband, Ralph, especially enjoyed ballroom dancing at the various dance halls in the area.
