Inetta June Hatfield Sanders

Inetta June Hatfield Sanders was born on October 28, 1956 in Phoenix, Arizona, the daughter of Rev. Billy J. and Maxine (Isom) Hatfield. She passed away on July 26, 2016 after a long illness at the age of 59 years, nine months and two days.

Inetta entered into marriage with Larry Von Sanders on May 31, 1992. They were a loving couple that was inseparable for 26 years, raising their beautiful daughters, Felicia and Christine.

She graduated from Summersville High School and later attended college to be a med-tech. She worked at the Mansfield nursing home as long as her health permitted.

Inetta’s personality was larger than life. She never met a stranger and was all about second chances. She felt everyone deserved a second chance at life, sometimes three. Family was everything to her. Being a wife, mother and grandmother was the thing she loved most in life. Several other than her own called her Mom and she loved them as her own. No one was turned away from her door, no matter how bad the situation. Inetta loved her animals; any abused or neglected animal always seemed to end up at her step to land in their forever home. She loved feeding and watching her birds and planting beautiful flowers all through her yard. She especially loved going on the truck with Larry, seeing new country and meeting new people; she loved riding on the motorcycle with him as well, feeling the wind in her hair. She was a devoted Christian and loved serving the Lord.

Inetta was preceded in death by her father, Rev. Billy J. Hatfield.

She is survived by her loving husband and soulmate, Larry Von Sanders of Mtn. Grove, Missouri; daughters, Felicia Chambers of Lebanon, Missouri, and Christine Jarrard and husband Gene of Kuttawa, Kentucky; her mother, Maxine Isom Hatfield of Mtn. Grove; sister, Diana Autrey and husband Mike of Mtn. Grove; brother, Bill Hatfield and wife Debbie of Ozark, Missouri; five grandchildren, Tyrone, Dakota, Isaiah, Alex and Lynsey; and a host of nieces, nephews, in-laws, friends and self-adopted children who loved and will miss her greatly.

Visitation was held on Saturday, July 30, 2016, at the funeral chapel. Arrangements were under the direction of Elliott-Gentry-Carder Funeral Home of Cabool, Missouri.
