Donna Trudy Imboden, a long-time resident of St. Petersburg, went to be with our Heavenly Father on the 17th of January, 2020.
Born 1931 in Pocatello, Idaho. She came to St. Pete in 1948 and started a family in 1952. While raising her children, she worked various jobs until she found her niche in the early world of technology. After a 40-year career with IRC / TRW, she retired as a supervising manager.
She was preceded in death by her husbands, George Allen and James Imboden, and firstborn grandson Tim Earle. She is survived by her children, Karen Earle (Jim); George Allen Jr. (Christy) and Patty Gavornik (Mike). Grandchildren: James Earle III (Amy); Kelli Schmidt (Brian); Crystal Allen; Rachael Patrick (Mark); Brad Gavornik; Lauren Gavornik and Lindsey Gavornik. Great-grandchildren: Savanna Edwards (Charles); Grace Schmidt; RJ Schmidt; Cyler Gable; Jase Patrick; Tyson Patrick and many beloved nieces and nephews. She is also survived by her BFF’s, Jackie Wolkins and Saundra Jones.
She loved the Lord, her family, friends, and every baby she met. She enjoyed going to church, painting, word searches, traveling, seeing shows, and the occasional penny slots. Favorite past-time otherwise, was watching old westerns and pedaling her exer-cycle.
She had many adventures throughout her life and was fortunate to travel often, but if you were to ever ask her where was her favorite place, she would say, “What” and then say, “home with her family”.
By the way, mom always said, “forget in lieu of, I want the flowers”.
R. Lee Williams & Son Funeral Home has been entrusted with arrangements.
Her Celebration of Life will be held at Northeast Park Baptist Church, 3737 1st Street NE, St. Petersburg, FL. 33703, on February 8, 2020 at 11:00am
Family and friends will receive guests afterwards in the Fellowship Hall.
