Long Description:
Her Findagrave page provides an obituary. It indicates that she was born as Imaree Billberry in 1914 in Jayton, TX, between Abilene and Lubbock. At a young age, she married R.G. Donoho in 1932, and together, they operated a ranch and cotton farm in Jayton. Mr. Donoho passed on in 1958, and as the obituary notes that their daughter, Nancy (Hagar), was living in Sadler, presumably, Mrs. Donoho moved to the area to be closer, either as family or for care or both. Mr. Donoho and his immediate family are buried mostly back in Jayton or closer to it than to Sadler.

The obituary notes that Mrs. Donoho was very religious, active as an elder in a church in Oklahoma, and was very outgoing, well-known for an impression she did of Minnie Pearl. Beloved by all, even a note left on her Findagrave memorial that she treated friends of her grandchildren as if they were her grandchildren. She also enjoyed being a beauty consultant, working in her garden or on crafts.

She is buried just a few feet away from her son-in-law, O.V. Hagar, at the back of the cemetery near the northwest corner. Her modern, gray granite headstone has birds and flowers above the inscription. The dates are separated by a cross, and the inscription reads:

Imaree Donoho

July 28, 1914
