      Imogene was born June 23, 1911 at Mattie, Texas the 5th child of Nora Gholston Adams and John Quincy Adams. She was raised in West Texas and spent 2 years in Colorado where she started school. Imogene married Lee Roy Reaves in 1926. They had four children. Imogene lived 96 years, 6 months and 21 days. She was a member of the Church of Christ for seventy plus years. She spent her earlier married life raising her four daughters. She moved to Austin, Texas in 1947 and attended University Avenue Church of Christ for 40 years. At that time she moved into a home with her sister and started attending Cameron Road Church of Christ. She participated in Bible classes and Thursday Morning Ladies Class and donated to central Texas Children's Home for Christmas gifts and other needs. Her other donations were to the Cameron Road Church of Christ Missionaries, Salvation Army, and Doctors Without Borders. She worked at Scarborough's Department Store for many years. She started work in 1971 for the State of Texas Rehabilitation Department and retired at age 75. She had many good friends. Her descendants all enjoyed her many tales of the "old days" and the changes she saw in the world during her lifetime. She was dearly love by her daughters, their husbands and the members of their families, because she, herself, was so loving. It was not in her nature to speak unkindly of anyone.
