University Drive, Fort Worth, Texas 76109 or to a . Imogene was born in Fort Worth to Carrie Belle Boydston and William Byrd Walker on March 28, 1917. Imogene lived her entire life in Fort Worth with her late husband of 65 years, Donald Edwin McCue. Imogene and Don met at Magnolia Avenue Christian Church in the High School program and were active members until the closing of the church in 1982. At that time they transferred to University Christian Church where they became active participants. Imogene was the office manager of Landers Machine Shop and Pellet Mills for 20 years. In the 1950s she joined Co-Wi-Bus, where she held every office in the club over the next 50 years until its demise in the early 2000s. She was a member of the Fort Worth Woman's Club Penelope Group and was president more than once. Imogene was extremely active in the Elks Lodge and was president of the Lady Elks several times. She and Don were there every time the doors opened. Imogene was a volunteer at Harris Methodist Hospital downtown in the surgical waiting room one morning a week for 15 years. Imogene also loved to work in her garden and was a member of the Garden Club for years. Don and Imogene both loved to travel and visited all 50 states and traveled extensively throughout the world. Imy's most lasting influence will not be all her club and volunteer work but her influence on her family. She was one of six children and we celebrated every holiday with the whole family. It was important that all generations stay in contact and connected. Imy taught her daughters how to enjoy life, to be patient, kind, loving and giving Christians. She also taught us that life has hills and valleys and to enjoy each as all phases of life build character and perseverance. But her greatest skill was being "Mama Imy" to her grandchildren. She had them over for special weekends, for a week or two in the summer, took all of them on vacations together, always went to visit and called them. The five grandkids knew their "Mama Imy" was always there for them. The family wishes to express our deepest appreciation for the loving and compassionate care the staff of Garden Terrace provided out mother. Survivors: Her daughters, Donna McCrary and husband, Leon, and Anna Lee Caudry; grandchildren, Sharla Zamora, Rex McCrary and wife, Deb, LeAnn McCrary, Claire Caudry and partner, Jennifer Mullen, Lee Caudry and wife, Jessica: great-grandchildren, Samantha and Rachel Zamora, Andrew, Olivia and Kayla McCrary, and Jack Mullen.
