The family moved to Eastland county south of Ranger when she was a small child, there she attended school and married a neighbor boy, Joe Mansel Fox. Inez and Mansel moved to Olden where they raised their family and shared 49 years of marriage before his passing. She later married J.W. Vinson who also preceded her in death. Inez was a charter member of Calvary Baptist Church where she taught the primary class. She was active in her children's activities and served as 4-H leader. She was employed by the Vasserette sewing factory, sewed for the public and alterations for Ford's Dry Cleaners. A gifted seam-tress, she made many beautiful clothes for her family. Inez loved working in her flower gardens, watching birds and butterflies, and taking walks to find unusual rocks for her collection. She enjoyed cooking and sewing with her granddaughters, and listening to her grandsons sing and play the guitar and banjo. She delighted in visits from great-grandchildren, making pictures and doing puzzles with them. Inez loved her Lord, her church, family and her community of Olden. Besides her husbands and parents, Inez was preceded in death by a son Charles Fox, sister Bonnie Fay Fox, brothers Chester Highsmith, Carl Highsmith and Billy Highsmith. She is survived by her son Joe Donald Fox and wife Barbara, daughter Glenda Steddum and husband Cliff, 5 grandchildren and spouses, 11 great-grandchildren, 2 great-great-grandchildren, and step great and great-great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, sister-in-law Annie Bell Fox and Mary Jo Fox. The family wishes to extend gratitude to administration and staff of Clyde Nursing Center for the wonderful care given our loved one, local churches, organizations, groups volunteers and the good folks of Clyde and area towns who visited Inez and brought support to the family.
