Known as “The Sewing Lady”, Imogene loved her work as a seamstress. She sewed everything from couch cushions to bridal gowns. She enjoyed crocheting, knitting, and crafting. She loved the outdoors, camping trips and canoeing. Imogene was fond of country music and country music festivals, but her greatest love was for her family and she enjoyed all the time she spent with them. She was so proud of her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren and her face would light up when she spoke about them.
Imogene was devoted to her faith and was a member of the Onaway United Methodist Church, United Methodist Women, and was involved with the Methodist Youth group. She also belonged to the Red Hat Society and enjoyed going to the Onaway Senior Center. For many years Imogene was a 4-H leader teaching sewing to many of the youth from the area. Together she and her husband were Boy Scout and Girl Scout leaders when their children were growing up.

II and Candy Faith, William Faith, and Thomas Faith, all of Onaway; nine grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren; as well as, brothers, Eugene Harman of Chino Valley, AZ and Lester Knickerbocker of Stevensville.
