Inez Mozelle Lamkin passed away July 26, 2013 in Chandler, Okla., at the Chandler Nursing Facility at the age of 95. Inez was the sixth child born to William Richard and Josie Ann Naron-Helsel in Byers, and grew up mostly in Kansas. She graduated from Haskins Elementary School in Pratt in 1933. Inez and Harry Odell Lampkin were married on Sept. 5, 1936, and raised three children together. Harry preceded Inez in death in 1981. Inez later married Harry's youngest brother, Oliver Wendell, who also preceded her in death.
Inez was a member of the Churches of Christ since the 1950s in Kansas, Oklahoma and Arizona. She always considered the church in Pratt as her home church family.
Inez was preceded in death by her parents; two husbands; daughter Shirley Nadine; and her five siblings, Florence, Harry, Ernest, Ellen, and Roland.
She is survived by her son, Robert Duand and his wife Zella Mae (Hoff) Lamkin of Wellston; Harriet Diane; many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and a few great-great-grandchildren.
Before her death at age 95, Inez has possibly outlived all of the Helsels. She lived a full and rewarding life. A graveside memorial service will take place Sunday, Aug. 18, at the IOOF Cemetery in Iuka. Arrangements are under the direction of Lehman Funeral Home of Wellston.
