Graveside services for Irma Marie Launius, 83, West Plains, Missouri, were held on Wednesday, January 6, 2021 at Evergreen Cemetery, under the direction of Robertson-Drago Funeral Home.
Mrs. Launius passed away at 7:55 a.m., Monday, January 4, 2021, at her home.
She was born July 20, 1937, at West Plains, Missouri, to Ray Crow and Rosa Knox Crow. Irma was born, married and died on the family homestead. On February 7, 1959, she was married to Kineth Galin Launius. She loved her God and all things good and simple. Mrs. Launius drove a school bus for over thirty years in West Plains and in the State of California for special needs kids for several years. She enjoyed her job and loved the children. Mrs. Launius was a passionate advocate for the underdog; she loved irises, lilacs and all things purple. She especially loved her family, friends and community. She enjoyed canning, sewing and being a blessing. Irma moved from a peaceful sleep to her eternal life; she would have said "It couldn't have been any better."
She is survived by her husband, Kineth Launius, of the family home; one son, Grant Launius and wife, Pam, West Plains; five grandchildren, David Murdy, West Plains, Christina Daily and husband, Tim, West Plains, Heather Murdy, West Plains, Donna-Jean Acosta and husband, Dalton, Silver Springs, Nevada and Sarah Murdy, West Plains; and seven great-grandchildren, Aidan, Miguel, Kenneth Lee, Max, Amaya-Marie, Lucas and Zephaniah.
