Inez Lares Obituary

Inez June (Nancy) Webb Lares, 78 of Dry Creek, died peacefully at home after a long illness on Sunday, Oct. 29, 2023. Born in Hazy, West Virginia April 6, 1945, Nancy was the daughter of Quincy Webb and Ruth Webb Clay. Nancy didn’t have idle hands; in earlier years she ran her own reupolstery business and was a master of painting pictures and ceramics. She was an active founder for the Naoma Community Center and lifelong member of Naoma Freewill Baptist Church. When you did find Nancy taking a couple of minutes to herself it was doting on her grandchildren that made her eyes sparkle. Or that cup of coffee with a friend that highlighted her light humor and wit. Left behind to cherish her memory is her husband of 61 years Russell Lares. Son-in-law (Embraced Son and Caregiver) Robert (Bobby) Jarrell and devoted grandson, Josh Jarrell, Grandchildren: Uriah, Eli and Makiah, all of Dry Creek and granddaughter, Courtneigh. Brother, James (Buddy) and wife, Peggy Webb of Grafton, Ohio. Caring niece, Peggy (Gary) Bone and a host of loving nieces and nephews. Unwavering faith in the Lord even through the death of her beloved daughter she held to the belief that God had a plan and it was not for her to question. Nancy won’t be celebrating in heaven alone, she’ll be greeted at Heavens gates by her daughter, Gina Kay Jarrell, parents, Quincy Webb and Ruth Webb Clay. Stepfather. Lacy Clay. Brothers, Thomas and Teddy, nephews: Scoot Webb, Russell and David Cox and nieces, Marsha Adkins and Lisa Webb. Funeral services will be held Saturday afternoon November 4, 2023, at two o’clock in the Naoma Freewill Baptist Church, Naoma, WV with Pastor Larry Kinder officiating. Visitation will be 2 hours before the service. Burial will follow in the Don Jarrell Cemetery on the Family Farm at Dry Creek, WV with Pastor Larry Kinder officiating. Armstrong Funeral Home is serving the family.

Don’t grieve for me – by Thresiamma Abraham

Don’t grieve for me, for I’m free
I’m following the path God laid for me
I took his hand when I heard his call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I’ve found that peace at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy,
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah, yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow,
My life’s been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief
Lift up your hearts and share with me,
God wanted me now, He has set me free.
