Imogene Brent Nowell, 85, of Corsicana passed away Sunday, January 26, 2020 at Twilight Nursing Home. She was born September 29, 1934 to Francis M. Brent and Charlie H. Brent in Corsicana. Imogene was the youngest of 8 children and grew up in a loving home with many family gatherings, great food, joy, and laughter.

Imogene met the love of her life Ben E. Nowell and they married in 1952. Imogene and Ben had two daughters, Janice and Cindy and lived a short time in Garland. In 1961, Imogene and Ben built their home in Corsicana where Imogene set about the loving work of being an excellent cook and homemaker, patient and generous mother, and devoted and caring wife.

Admirably, in the early 1970’s Imogene’s school teaching career began. She first attended Navarro College and then by 1975, she had earned both a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees from East Texas State University at Commerce in elementary and early childhood education. Imogene taught kindergarten at Sam Houston Elementary School for 20 years. She loved her career and students.

Imogene was a wonderful neighbor and community member, too, who cared deeply about Corsicana, her hometown. Her loving home was filled with music, the news, and conversation. She cared deeply for all animals, not just her own and made many donations to the local SPCA. She took a keen interest in local and national politics and kept up with all current events. She was actively involved in the local Democratic Women’s Organization.

She was a Christian woman who lived by Bible scripture and epitomized strength in her devotion and faith in daily life. Many turned to her for wisdom and advice. Imogene began and ended her busy day with an inspirational quote or scripture to guide her and assist in making sense of the world.

Imogene was preceded in death by her parents and 7 siblings, her beautiful daughter Janice, and her wonderful husband Ben. Imogene is survived by her daughter Cindy and son-in-law Tom and many nieces and nephews.

Visitation with the family will be held from 5:00 to 7:00pm Thursday, January 30, 2020 at Corley Funeral Home. Funeral services are scheduled for 2:00pm Friday, January 31, 2020 in the Corley Funeral Home Chapel with Chaplain Stephen McElroy officiating. Interment will follow in Oakwood Cemetery.

The family would like to thank the staff of Navarro Regional Hospital, Twilight Nursing Home, Medical City Dallas, and New Century Hospice.
