Inez Carmen Puckett-Head passed away peacefully in her home in the early hours of Feb. 14, 2013. She was born near Norman, Okla., on Feb. 25, 1922. She moved with her immediate family to Roswell in 1939. She was preceded in death by her parents Hugh Cecil Puckett and Vinna Mae Huggins-Puckett; her husband Ray Head; siblings, Raymond Puckett, Sgt. Major “Rock” Puckett, Christine Doris Puckett Parks, and Leon “Lee” Puckett; father-in-law Joe John Head; mother-in-law Alcoma Andrews-Head; brother-in-law Rue Head; and sisters-in-law, Buella May Sanders and Gladys Marie Price.
Surviving is her son Cecil Ray Head and his 10-year-old daughter Cailynn Rayanne Head; her half-brother Wesley Puckett and her brother- in-law Joe Head. She is also survived by countless cousins, nieces, and nephews and was affectionately called “Aunt Nezzie.”
Inez had a special gift: All who were fortunate enough to have met her were touched by her kindness. She never met a stranger! She was a loving wife, mother and an amazing grandmother to her only grandchild. She spent hours playing with Cailynn and they truly shared a special bond that will forever last in Cailynns’ heart.
After her husband’s untimely death in June 1970, she took over his business of selling household goods for the L.B. Price Mercantile Company earning top sales award almost monthly until the company went out of business.
An informal memorial celebration of her life is scheduled for Feb. 25, 2013, which would have been her 91st birthday. Please call her son Cecil after 10 a.m. for more information regarding services.
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate cards or letters, of memories celebrating moments shared between you and Inez, leaving memories for her granddaughter of how you were touched by her kindness. God bless you all.
