Inez Marie Armstrong

Inez Marie Armstrong, the daughter of Frank and Vera (Carrol) Camp, was born Jan. 10, 1934, in Boone.

Inez worked at Thombert’s in Newton for many years as a mold handler. She loved her family and grandchildren and was always willing to help her family when needed.  She loved being a foster grandmother.  Inez worked for several years at the YMCA Daycare and was sad when her health would not allow her to continue. Inez enjoyed baking, playing cards — especially solitaire, making Christmas candy, camping, watching CNN and keeping the family apprised of breaking news, old time country music and “re-arranging” furniture.

Inez died Monday, May 26, 2014, at her home in Newton. She was 80 years old. Inez was preceded in death by her parents; her daughter, Candy Oldenburger on Nov. 1, 2004; grandsons, Josh and Kyle; several brothers and sisters.

Those left to honor Inez’s memory include her daughters, Cindy (Ron) Swisher of Newton, Sandra (Joe) Reynolds) of Newton and Belinda (James) Genco of Ames; her eight grandchildren; her 10 great-grandchildren; a great-great-grandchild; her sisters, Ruth Dailey and Mary Lou Miller; her brother, Don Camp; and her many friends.

A service will be at 10:30 a.m. Friday, May 30, at the Pence-Reese Funeral Home in Newton. The family will greet friends from 9:30 a.m. until service time Friday at the funeral home. Memorials may be designated in Inez’s name to Skiff Hospice and may be left at the funeral home.
