"ROCKRIDGE — In loving memory of our "Mommy" ImaJean Smith, 71, of Rockridge.

"On Monday, March 19, 2007, God was searching for an angel to call into Heaven. He looked down upon the Earth and saw our mommy, the kindest, most gentle, loving, and beautiful angel in the world. He opened the Heavenly Gates and welcomed her home. Her beauty was not only on the outside, but also on the inside. She was a mother to many. Mommy lost her mother as a young child and never knew the love and touch of a "mommy", but God blessed her with that knowledge. She was our best friend. Mommy is at peace now; she is with Daddy. They were apart for two and a half years; the longest they had been apart in their 55 years of marriage.

"Mommy was of the Primitive Baptist faith and had been a member of the Mt. Olive Primitive Baptist Church for 40 years. She loved to sew and quilt but most of all she loved being with her family and friends. She worked side by side with Daddy to help raise her children. All that knew her knew what a hard worker she was. She was a friend to many and will be greatly missed by all.

"ImaJean Sanders Smith was born in Caretta, to Elbert and Alice (Elam) Sanders on June 27, 1935. She was preceded in death by her parents, two brothers, Beecher Sanders and a stillborn infant brother, and her loving husband of 55 years, Robert M. Smith.

"She is survived by her five children: One son, Lloyd D. Smith and wife, Gayle, whom she loved as one of her daughters, of Rockridge; four daughters, Linda Smith Pauley and husband Douglas of Iaeger, Delores Smith Vance and husband Paul of Trinity, N.C., Cynthia Smith Coleman and husband Kennith of Mohawk, and Kimberly Smith Hagerman and husband Greg of Jolo; seven grandchildren: Six grandsons, Michael Smith and wife Eva of Ravena, Ohio, Joseph Smith and wife Katie of Kent, Ohio, David Turner and JJ of Lexington, N.C., Justin Vance and Jennifer of Jolo, Conley Coleman of Morgantown, and Adam Hagerman of Jolo, one granddaughter, Lindsi Pauley of Iaeger, two great grandchildren, Ethan and Brayden Vance of Jolo; four brothers, Junior Rowe and wife Janice of Rockridge, Foster Sanders and wife Dorothy of Mt.
