On August 12, 2012, Imogene Ann Smith (also known as "Mama Juju") made a transition from earth to Glory. She was born on March 14, 1934 to the late Roosevelt Willis and Norma Lee (Jones) Hunter. She attended the Bastrop County Texas public schools and graduated from the L. C. Anderson High School in Austin, Texas as Class Salutatorian and with Honors in American History.

Imogene Ann was united in marriage to the late Deacon George Crawford Smith for 47 years. To this union: Lionel Crawford, Bryan Kevin, Norman Keith and Noel Kent, along with two daughters: ReGina (Reggie) and Robin (Sally Gal) were born.

Imogene accepted Christ at an early age. She was an active member of the Webberville Ebenezer Baptist Church under the leadership of the late Pastor J. L. Thompson. In 1945, she was baptized under the pastorship of Rev. Netters in the Colorado River of Webberville Texas. In later years, the Webberville Ebenezer Baptist Church moved to Austin, Texas where the church name was changed to New Light Ebenezer Baptist Church, (now under the leadership of Pastor Frank Cage) where she served faithfully as the Mission President, Asst. Director of the BTU, a lead singer in the choir, Program writer, Youth Coordinator, and a 'great' Culinary Cook on the Kitchen Committee. (Famous for her 'Peach Cobbler , Pound Cake, Home-made Cookies and Thanksgiving Dressing!') She later joined the Church of God In Christ No. 1 under the leadership of Pastor Robert A. Davis, where she served as a faithful Missionary Mother of the Church.

Imogene is preceded in death by her parents Roosevelt and Norma Hunter, husband George, son Lionel Crawford, brother Charles Hunter, and sisters Clarice Booker and Ora Jones.

Imogene Ann leaves to cherish her memory: daughters ReGina 'Reggie' (Minister Keith) Jones of Dallas, TX and Robin Smith of Austin, TX; sons: Minister Bryan Kevin (Cynthia) Smith of Pflugerville, TX, Norman Smith of Houston, TX , and Noel Kent (Sundee) Smith of Pflugerville, TX; Step Daughter: Yvette 'Mimi' Barlow; Sisters: Robbie Haywood of Austin, TX, Mary (Benjamin) Broadnax of Dallas, TX, Minnie Carrington and Eleanor Carter both of Austin, TX; one brother Norwood Ray (Wanda) Hunter of Houston, TX; Brother-in Law: Jimmy V. (Juanita) Smith; Sisters-in-law: Edna Hunter, Cleora (Connie) McVade, Cornelius 'Led' Spence of Manor, TX, Lula Mae (Leon) Shirley; God Daughter Erie Moten, all of Austin, TX; 14 Grandchildren, 21 Great-Grandchildren, 5 Great-Great-Grandchildren, and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and many loving friends.

She has been a daughter, sister, wife, friend, mother, aunt, choir member, deaconess, nurses aid, missionary, counselor, mother-in-law, grandmother, great grandmother and great-great grandmother...That's why we call her Mother Juju. Her favorite saying, "I won't complain, God has been good to me."
