Obituary for Ina Mae (Granny) Whited

Ina Mae (Granny) Whited, 98, of Hot Springs, AR, quietly went home to be with Jesus on January 15, 2018. She was born in Ardmore OK, August 6, 1919 to Elmer and Mellie Dewbre.

Granny was a beautiful lady inside and out who lived a beautiful life. She always had a lovely smile that would light up a room. Granny had a heart that loved as much as a person could possibly love. She did more for her family than anyone could ever imagine. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, and a genuinely sweet and authentic woman who taught her family well about life, love, and giving unselfishly. Every life she touched, she made special simply by being part of it.

Granny loved being with her family, watching her jockey/trainer sons race at Oaklawn Park, bowling on a league for decades at Central Lanes, BINGO, celebrating her birthday with family and good Mexican food at La Hacienda on Central Ave., and faithfully watching “The Young and the Restless” and “The Bold and the Beautiful”.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Fred Whited, and her great grandson, Chad Garren. She is survived by four children/spouses- Trisha (Whited) and Joe Garren, Shirley (Whited) Scott, David and Beans Whited, and Danny and Patty Whited. Granny has eight grandchildren/spouses- Jody and Cindy Garren, Wayne and Mary Deatherage, Danny and Diane Deatherage, Bridgett Bradley, Tracey (Whited) and Pat Halligan, Lisa (Whited) and Tracy Boisdrenghien, David Paul and Sharon Whited, and Ryan and Betsy Whited. She also has 16 great-grandchildren and 10 great-great-grandchildren.

All services will be held at Caruth-Hale Funeral Home. Visitation will be Sunday from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The funeral will be held on Monday at 10:00 a.m. with burial following at Memorial Gardens Cemetery. Robi Heffington will officiate the memorial service.

We miss you and love you forever and ever “Our Precious Granny”! We will see you again when we get to Heaven!
