March 24, 1923 –

Sept. 8, 2013

Imogene M. Casteel, 90, of Red Oak passed away Sunday, Sept. 8, 2013, at Baylor Medical Center at Waxahachie.

Imogene was born in Blytheville, Ark. on March 24, 1923 to the late Allen C. and Mattie (Webster) Moody. She graduated from Blytheville High School and then attended secretarial school and went to work for ASCS division of the Federal Government.  

At age 25, Imogene became a single parent with a 5 year-old-boy, 9-month-old baby girl and another boy on the way. Since she was the only parent in her children’s lives, she became very committed to sacrificially providing for their well being and care, choosing not to date or remarry. Her love has been evident through the years.  She was a lifelong member of the First Baptist Church of Gosnell, Ark. Imogene was committed to her faith, family, and friends. Her life was a true testimony to her Christian walk. As mentioned by her family, her spiritual gift was a servant’s heart. She will be missed by all who knew her.

Imogene’s survivors include her three loving children; Ed (Melvina) Casteel of Missouri, Mary (Cliff) Lansdell of Red Oak and Chris (Angie) Casteel of Kansas. She is the grandmother of six grandsons; great-grandmother of 15; and great-great grandmother of three. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, and other loving relatives and friends.

Along with her parents, Imogene was preceded in death by four brothers and three sisters.

Imogene’s children will be receiving family friends at the Boze- Mitchell- McKibbin Funeral Home, 511 W. Main St. in Waxahachie from 10-11 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2013, with services following at 11a.m. Interment will be private.
