She was a member of the Congregational United Church of Christ in Baxter where she taught Sunday School and was the Sunday School Treasurer for 30 years. She was also a member of the Women's Fellowship at the church. Irma enjoyed spending time with family and friends, traveling to Germany, sewing and making clothes, cooking and baking brownies for Nathan and Maddy when they came to visit after school.
Those left to cherish her memories are her husband Wayne Poage; son John (Sybil) Poage ; grandchildren Nathan Poage, Maddy Poage, Gary Fallon, Rodney (Laura) Fallon, Stacy (Rodney) Pearson, Stefanie (Mike) Cluphf, Emily (Tim) Murray and Alyssa Burcham; great grandchildren Sam Pearson, Devin Pearson, Beka Pearson, Austin Penning and Jamey Murray; cousin Heinz Dungfelder; and many close friends.

We were saddened to hear that Aunt Irma passed away. I have fond memories if her. Particularly the summer I got sunburned so badly. I remember lying on their couch while she so tenderly put calomine lotion to try to soothe the pain. She will be missed.
