CARTHAGE-Imogene Hardin Beasley Pedro, age 91, of Lafayette, Louisiana, passed away peacefully at her home on Monday, February 19, 2018. She was born April 22, 1926, in Gary, Texas to the late Floyd Lemmie and Winnie Merritt Bailey Hardin. She had been a resident of Lafayette for over fifty years and was a member of First Baptist Church where she sang in the choir. She was also a member of the Oilfield Wife's Club and the American Business Woman's Association. She was employed with Lafayette General Medical Center and Amoco. Her children, grandchildren and great-grandsons were the light of her life. She had a green thumb and everything she grew was either beautiful or delicious.
