From the Crockett Sentinel - Date Unknown

News came to town Friday morning of the sudden death of Mr. Claude C. Inman. He and son Paul had resided at the family home on Mason Grove Road since the passing of Mrs. Inman. When Mr. Inman did not arise at the usual hour, his sons went to his bedroom to find he had slipped from our midst into the world beyond. Older citizens remember when Mr. and Mrs. Inman, three sons and four daughters moved to Gadsden from Gibson County. Throughout the years Mr. Inman had a deep love for the New Prospect Church and community in Decatur County and most years he made his way there for Homecomings and annual revivals. His children attended school and reared families on our area and have contributed much to the welfare of our community. Funeral services were Sunday afternoon with burial in his beloved Prospect Cemetery near Parsons.

Katie Lee Thomason

    Katie Lee Thomason was born Oct. 11, 1913, to Ben and Nettie Davis. Mother left us Friday, Feb. 27, 2009.
    She grew up in the city of Coleman, Texas, where she met and married our father, Omar, in February 1935.
    In her healthy days, Mother loved to fish and quilt. She was an active member of the United Methodist Church, of Cherokee. When her health started declining, we were hard pressed to keep enough books around for her voracious reading habit.
    Mother dearly loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She delighted in taking the grandchildren fishing. Her very special son-in-law, Earl Burns, thought of her as his mother and he was like a son to her.
    Mother was preceded in death by her husband, Omar (1991); infant son, Jackie; infant daughter, Sallie; her parents, Ben and Nettie; brothers, Earl, Les, Fred, Jack, Jerry and Harry; sisters, Ruby, Velma, Lois, Mary Allen and Ted; and son-in-law, Brad Divers.
    She is survived by us, her daughters, Ginger (Ron), her children, Tony and his son, Shaun and Erin (Joe) and her daughter, Jessica; Lana (Earl), their daughters, Lara (Brian) and their son, Jack, Cary (Chad) and their son, Kai; Benny (Rick); sister-in-law, Anne Davis; a host of nieces and nephews; and friends of all ages.
    We would like to thank Vicky for her invaluable help. We would also like to thank Mid South Home Health Care and Wiregrass Hospice, especially Tracy and Bonnie. And finally, we would like to thank all the nurses and staff at Station 2 at Mitchell-Hollingsworth Nursing Home.
