Beth Ann Baker Inman – Bedford
Beth Ann Baker Inman, 60, of Bedford, passed away peacefully on Friday, February 24, 2012.
Born June 9, 1951 to George and Aimee (Turner) Baker. Her family was completed when she welcomed her baby sister, Bonnie Lynn on January 22, 1958. Beth married Robert Ora Inman on August 2, 1974. On May 2, 1977 their first son, Adrian Dain was born. The family grew to include Zachary Nathan, born March 12, 1981, Ashlen Elizabeth born December 29, 1983. Robert Ethan Seth completed the family on August 8, 1988.
She was incredibly caring and compassionate. She loved children and animals and raised many four-legged kids over the years, with a special place in her heart for her little dog, Peedad. When at home, she spent many happy hours gardening and watching the stars at night and the birds during the day. She spent some of her happiest times traveling the country with her family, splitting weekends between farmers markets in Orange County and flea markets in Brown County. She enjoyed meeting new people and sharing conversations; she never met a stranger. For several years, she cherished the annual family trip to Canada, spending time camping, eating fish and chips under the bridge and seeing the sights. Whether the trip was long or short, she always treasured time spent with her family.
After raising her children, Beth worked at Lowes where she made wonderful friends.
She is survived by her husband, Robert Ora Inman, of Bedford; her children, Ardian Dain Inman and wife Roxana Fuentes of Indianapolis, their two children Idalia Jain and Augustus Alexander; Zachary; Nathan Inman, Ashlea Elizabeth Inman and Robert Ethan Seth Inman, all of Bedford. Their mom was the center of their world. She is also survived by two special cousins, Connie Rott and Cathy Jane Stewart; her mother-in-law, Bernice Inman and sister-in-law Denise Tillett and other nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parent, her father on May 6, 1979 and her mother on November 14, 2033. It broke her heart to lose her sister, Bonnie Lynn on May 8, 1985.
In lieu of flowers the family asks you to spend time with friends and loved ones. Beth’s last days were spent with her family. We wish we would have had more time together, although forever would not have been long enough. We will love and miss her always.
