Inez Deloris Benda

As a beautiful bright sun rose over a crisp, cold, cloudless Texas sky HEAVEN’S GLORIOUS GATES swung open when GOD stepped up to WELCOME our faithful, precious, beautiful, MOTHER HOME.

Inez was born August 18, 1922 in the Pueblo Community near Putnam, Texas to Chester and Emogene (Jeter) Allen and died February 13, 2019 in Quitman, Texas. She was raised in the Pueblo Community and graduated from Moran High School, later graduated from Abilene Business School plus worked 10 years for the General Motors Corporation. She was honored by earning Oldsmobile’s Nationwide Highest Achievement Award as a part of the Oldsmobile Business Management Club.

On March 14, 1942 she married Miles Benda, a WWII Army soldier and farmer/rancher. They lived many happy years in the Moran-Albany area.

Inez was a loving, courageous, fantastic wife, mother and homemaker. She always placed God’s Will first in her life and was a tireless, faithful worker for her Christian faith. She was diligent in service for God’s missionary vision and in service for her Baptist church while she always remembered others and their needs. Throughout her life she continued to be a constant worker in community activities.

Inez was preceded in death by her parents, husband Miles Benda, sister Charlene Austin, two brothers Jerrell and Bill Allen, grandson Cyle Connally and great grandson Rowan Franklin.

Left to cherish her memory are her daughters; Kay Franklin and her husband Kenny - New Braunfels, TX, Ann Connally, Quitman, TX and Connie Graham and her husband Doug – Springtown, TX; Grandchildren, Kimberly Franklin, Chris Connally, Hank Beatty, Chuck Franklin, Candi (Connally) Fry, Chelsea Graham and Chase Graham; Great Grandchildren, Christiana Williams, A J Rice, Kaci Warren, Spencer Rye, Garrett Beatty, Michael Fry, Mason Connally, Brianna Connally, Mitchel Fry, and Kaylynn Franklin and great great grandchild Kinsley Warren, as well as numerous extended family.
