Cleo Olive Norris Inman, 1896-1947
The Seymour Herald - 20 February 1947
Final Rites For Mrs. Ed Inman
Mrs. Cleo Inman passed away at her home near Numa on Tuesday of last week having been ill only since the preceding Friday.
Cleo Olive Norris, daughter of L. J. and Minnie Norris, was born July 29, 1896 and died at her home near Numa Feb. 11, 1947 at the age of 50 years, six months and 13 days.
With the exception of a few months she lived her entire life in Appanoose County. She completed her high school in Centerville, graduating as valedictorian with the class of 1915.
On Nov. 28, 1917 she was united in marriage with Edward P. Inman. To this union seven sons were born, all surviving: namely, Lazelle and Byron at Numa, Wendall, Milfred, Arthur, Kenneth and Donald at home. She is also survived by her husband, her aged mother, three daughters-in-law, three grandchildren and a host of relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her father.
She was united with the Methodist Church in Jerome during the Rev. Kremeyer's services in 1909, and remained true to her faith throughout her entire life.
She was a loving mother, a faithful wife, a kind neighbor and friend, and will be sadly missed by all who knew her.
With the Rev. M. R. Gonzales of Mystic-Jerome Charge officiating, funeral services were held at the Jerome Methodist Church Friday, Feb. 14, at 2:30 p.m. The Young Married People's Choir of the Jerome Methodist Church sang two very consoling hymns: "Does Jesus Care?" and "When the Mists Have Rolled Away." She was laid to rest in the Jerome Cemetery.
