March 15, 1952 –
 June 5, 2022


OYA IMREN of Dallas, Texas, died on Sunday, June 5, 2022 after a long battle with ALS.

She was 70 years old young. Oya was born March 15, 1952 in Ankara, Turkey. She immigrated to the United States in 1975 and became a naturalized citizen in 1996.


Oya was a licensed professional and unusually skillful manicurist/pedicurist for over forty years doing what she loved best. Through her work she made many lasting friendships and meaningful relationships. There is no one that could match her healing hands and loving heart. She often gifted her clients with her unmatched, homemade baklava!


Oya is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Ipek and Anthony Rudd and her three grandchildren, Eren, Sera and John of Dallas, Texas as well as her brothers, Sami (Nansi) Durten of Austin, Texas, and Sadri (Fatma) Kiral of Antalya, Turkey.


A celebration of Oya’s life is scheduled for Saturday, June 18 at 11:00 AM at North Dallas Funeral Home, 2710 Valley View Lane, Dallas, Texas.


Memorial contributions may be directed to UT Southwestern Medical Center, P. O. Box 910888, Dallas, TX 75391-0888 or online at to support the ALS research of Jaya Trivedi, M.D

    Oya’s joyful and loving spirit will be missed by her dear family and many friends. She was delightful to be with and usually had a funny joke to share. I am missing you my sweet friend of 40 plus years. Rest in Peace, Cindy

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
