Graveside services will be at 3 p.m. Saturday in Claude Cemetery in Claude with Jeff Conway, pastor of Westminster Presbyterian Church, officiating. Arrangements are by Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors, 2800 Paramount Blvd.

Imogene was born March 17, 1927, in Claude to Robert Luke and Bertie Bagwell, and was the eighth of nine children. She graduated from Claude High School and was only 16 years old when she entered Texas Tech University. She received her B.A. in speech from Texas Tech in 1947. She continued her education and received a master's in speech pathology from the University of Iowa in 1956 and was awarded a doctorate in special education from Texas Tech University in 1971.

Imogene was an educator and made a difference in the lives of many children with speech difficulties. She began her teaching career in speech at Clovis, N.M., and later at Ysleta Public Schools in El Paso. While in El Paso, she produced many outstanding plays with her theater arts students that are a significant and well- documented part of the history of Ysleta High School. She taught at Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau, Mo., for 10 years. In 1983, she moved to Pampa and worked in the speech and language area for exceptional children for schools in the Pampa-Perryton region.

After retiring in 1986, she moved to Amarillo. She was an avid and gifted bowler. She participated in many leagues in El Paso and received awards for her accomplishments including several perfect games of 300.

In Missouri, she took up golf and became very accomplished at this as well. She was an active member of the Panhandle Country Club and had a zero handicap at one point in her golfing career. She was an ardent Red Raider fan and along with her sister, Maurine, and her husband, T.L. "Luke" Leach, was a devoted supporter of all things Tech, especially football and Lady Raider basketball. One of her favorite memories was meeting coach Marsha Sharp when the USA Olympic team played in Lubbock in April 2004.

After retirement, Imogene became the family caregiver. Her care and dedication to her siblings was unwavering, especially the care she gave to Estelle, Johnnye and Don as they dealt with health issues. She was a cherished aunt and great-aunt to everyone. She took great pride in her 19 nieces and nephews, 43 great-nieces and great-nephews and the generation that followed.

She was the keeper of the family home in Claude and helped create many family memories including Easter egg decorating, cookie baking and the annual Christmas lunch at this house. In retirement, she continued to enjoy family occasions and was a devoted supporter of the activities of her great nieces and nephews. She rarely missed a game or activity in which one was participating, whether it was soccer or baseball games or year-end school awards ceremonies. Her education was a benefit later in her life as she became the family tutor for her great-nephews Luke and Levi's spelling bee competitions all throughout their elementary school years.

The family wishes to thank the staff at the Hudson House in Claude and Childers Place in Amarillo for their care of Imogene.
