Betty Marie (Cooley) Inman

March 5, 1941 ~ August 15, 2023 (age 82) 82 Years Old


Betty Marie Inman, a beloved resident of Kingsford Heights, passed away peacefully at the age of 82 on Tuesday, August 15, 2023, at Northwest Health - La Porte. Born on March 5, 1941, Betty was the cherished daughter of Oliver Leo and Ruby Della (Bennett) Cooley. Known for her loving, friendly, and thoughtful nature, Betty's life was a testament to the power of kindness and compassion.

Betty was a devoted mother to her children, LaDonna Hammonds, Connie Obadencio, Robin (Roger) Brewer, and Johnny (Judy) Shepherd. She was a proud grandmother to eleven grandchildren and adored her nineteen great-grandchildren. Betty was the cherished sibling to twelve brothers and sisters and was a much-loved aunt to numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; her son, DeWayne Lee Wills; her grandson, Joshua W. Hammonds; her sisters, Rose Ella Jozwiak and Thelma Cooley; and her brother, Gary Wayne Cooley.

For many years, Betty found fulfillment in her work as a laborer at the Mid America--Wiring Harness Plant. She had a zest for life that was evident in her hobbies, which included watching birds, completing puzzles, and playing Bingo. But the joy of Betty's life was found in the time spent with her grandchildren and in the simple act of helping others. Her kindness and generosity of spirit touched all who knew her.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 19, 2023, at Cutler Funeral Home and Cremation Center, with Pastor Bruce Vermilyer officiating. Betty will be laid to rest at Kingsbury Cemetery, following the service. A time of visitation will be held from 10:00 a.m. until the time of the service on Saturday at the funeral home.

Betty's life was a beautiful testament to the power of love, friendship, and thoughtfulness. Her memory will live on in the hearts of her family, friends, and all those whose lives she touched.
