She enjoyed getting to know the customers who came into the store. Irma was an active member of the LDS Church and served in many capacities. She had a lifelong love of family history and serving in the temple. She was known around town as someone who had a wealth of knowledge of Goshen and its history. She enjoyed gardening, was an excellent cook and most of all she loved her family and enjoyed their visits. Irma was preceded in death by her parents; husband; sisters Mary and Melba; brothers Clinton and Fred Junior; son Oliver; daughter Jean Aitken; son-in-law Bernell Aitken; grandson Jerry Aitken; great-granddaughter Kimberly Stevens; great-grandson Dustin Dunn. She is survived by children; Lloyd T. (Marie), Fay (Lee) Ryan, Allen (Barbara), daughter in law, Karma Penrod; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; nephews Reid (Nancy) Allen and Mark Allen; niece Sandra (Steve) Brimhall.
