Imogene McGhee Copenhaver


Imogene McGhee Copenhaver, age 91, passed away Monday, October 25, 2021 at Wythe County Community Hospital.

Imogene was a strong, independent woman who was good to her core. She was born into the depression era, but was raised in the richness of family and love. She worked outside the home for several years in bookkeeping, but her most rewarding life experience was raising her three sons. Imogene lived a wonderful full life gardening and canning in her own home until her passing. The last of eight siblings – strong brothers and sisters, a loving nurturing mother, grandmother, and friend – Imogene will be missed.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Paul and Lula May McGhee; four sisters, Katherine Repass, Martha Minter, Geraldine McGhee and Elizabeth Cassell; three brothers, Paul McGhee, Jr., Reed McGhee and Neal McGhee.

Imogene is survived by her sons, Paul Copenhaver and wife, Janet of Pottstown, Penn., Anthony Copenhaver and wife, Rhonda of Temple, Texas, and Dwayne Copenhaver and wife, Kristin of Blacksburg, Va.; three grandchildren, Sarah, James and Autumn Copenhaver; three step-grandchildren, Rashanda, Rashel and Ryan Gray; and numerous nieces and nephews.

The family will receive friends Thursday, October 28, 2021 from 6 until 8 p.m. at Seaver-Brown Chapel. Funeral services will be held Friday, October 29, 2021 at 11 a.m. at Seaver-Brown Chapel with Pastor David Fugatt officiating. Burial will follow in Mt. Carmel Cemetery.

We always enjoyed our trips to Marion and visiting with Aunt Imy. We have fond thoughts of her great ability to cook and prepare a meal, take care of the farm, love her family, and make us kids feel special when we came for a visit. She had a quick wit and great sense of humor. You are in out thoughts and prayers. We pray that the Lord will feel your soul with peace and your mind with wonderful memories of your Mon. Sherron, Mary, and Babs
