She is survived by her sons, Ken (Mary Ann) Cable, Randy Cable, Tony (Donna) Cable and Kevin (Ellen) Cable; her daughter, Bev (Bob) Carey; her sisters, Florence (Ted) Davidson and Cona Faye Ricker; grandchildren, Nicki (Tim) Switzer, Lanae Carey, Barrett (Larissa) Cable, Kara (Mark) Copeland, Brian (Rae Ann) Cable, Alissa (Nick) Arnold, Gerry Cable and Beth (Garison) Money; great-grandchildren, Ayden Switzer, Wyatt Switzer, Lily Hendrick, Madi Cable, Kyle Manweiler, Mason Cable, Emma Grace Copeland, Hadlee Copeland, Savanna Cable, Kayde Cable, Addie Arnold, Oliver Arnold and Eleanor Cable; several in-laws; Oleda Ashby, Flossie Ashby, Ewell Melton, Johnny Pankey, Aretta Hardin, JoAnn Cable, Louise Cable, Mealeta (Quill) Fuchs and Phil (Terry) Cable; and many nieces and nephews.

The family of Imogene Cable would like to say a special thank you to Dr. Barry Hendrix, Pam Ramirez and the staff of Greene Acres Nursing Home for their many years of love and care, and to Judy Freeman, who has done her hair for over 40 years.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to CRA Pals Program, where she spent several years being the grandmother that greeted those precious babies every morning. CRA Pals program, 606 Academy Dr. Paragould, AR 72450.
