She lived in Richfield, Ohio for many years, where she became a cake decorator and taught many students how to use her skills to make many beautiful cakes for weddings and parties of all kinds.  Irma resided in Barberton for 8 years giving joy to all she came into contact.

In addition to her parents and husband, Irma was preceded in death by brother, Richard Bigelow of Texas; her grandson, Hugh E. Everson lll and two children, Lora Ann and Bobby Lee, who were lost in a terrible auto accident in 1960 which caused her terrible pain during her entire life.

(Suzanne Sanders) Everson Jr.  of Barberton, Ohio; many nieces and nephews she loved with a passion. Irma had many special friends including her health aide, Chykela Williams and loving dog, Buttons.

She will be missed by all who knew her. May you now rest easy in the hands of the Lord, Mom.
