She married the late Forrest Crosby on February 9th 1946. They moved to Heber Springs in 1951. Together they saw milled and farmed throughout all of Forrest’s life. Imogene was well known as a hard working woman. She worked alongside her husband through-out the day and home every evening to tend to their children. They had 6 children that they taught the value of hard work and that your word was a binding contract. Strong family values were very important to Forrest and Imogene and when times were hard they taught their children to lean on each other and this formed a bond that can never be broken.
Imogene was an avid hunter and one of her greatest enjoyments was spending time with her sons and family deer hunting, and she got a deer every year!
