Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Irma Jean Gregory was born in Carlsbad, NM on November 24, 1944.

She left this world to be with Jesus on Monday, October 8, 2018.

After Irma won the fight with breast cancer in 2010, the battle resumed in 2012. Several months of chemo and radiation, love from family and friends, prayers and her faith in God and strong will to live, Irma was able to overcome. We were blessed with 6 years being cancer free and time with our beloved mother, and friend. In July of 2018 cancer came calling again for the third time.   Irma fought until she was tired and said it was now her time to go home to be with her Lord and Savior.

She was a member of the Oklahoma Muscogee Creek Nation and took great pride in her Native American heritage. She was a member of the Red Hat Society. Irma acquired an Associate’s degree in computer science from Brenham Texas. Irma worked for home health and manage the office until her mother fell ill. Irma left her position to dedicate 10 years to her mother. Irma continued to care for her mother even when she was fighting her own battles with cancer. Irma was a strong, loving woman. Her life was a living testament that anything is possible if Christ lives in you. When most would have given up she continued on.

She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend
