  1. Imogene was a ball of fire always anxious to spread her joy. Her knowledge of the history of Vega and its folks was immense and very interesting to me. She had been the news paper editor/owner just before I arrived and just before Quincy Taylor took the reins. We will all definitely miss her dedication to making Vega, Texas, the best place on earth to live.
