SPUR— Ina Thomason,

87, of Spur, Texas, was born April 19, 1935 in Graham, Texas. She passed away March 30, 2023 in her home surrounded by her loving family.

Ina attended school in Spur, where she first met her sweetheart at eight years old. Ina married Darrell Thomason on June 9, 1951 at the Putman home in the Highway Community.

Darrell and Ina moved to Hereford in 1952 and began their farming career. While they were living in Hereford, Lynette, Kenneth and Kirk were born. The family moved to Spur December of 1962, purchasing their first of many cotton farms, the Old Home Place.

Ina was employed by Spur ISD for 24 years, working in the cafeteria and driving a school bus. Lisa was born during this time and completed their family. Ina returned to work at Spur ISD, working in the library, which was her favorite job at school.

Ina’s favorite place to be was on the farm. Ina could drive a tractor, run a module, build fences, hoe cotton and raise a family all at the same time. If you saw Darrell, then you saw Ina. They were never apart. After 72 years of marriage they were inseparable.

Survivors include her loving husband, Darrell Thomason, of Spur; children Lynette Cheyne of Aspermont, and Kenneth Thomason, Kirk and Kathy Thomason, and Lisa and Scott Martin, all of Spur; grandchildren Amy Richardson of Guthrie, Jodi and Ricky Martinez of Abilene, Justin and Sonya Cheyne of Andrews, Monty Thomason of Spur, and Tristen Martin of Lubbock; great-grandchildren Makenna and Vance Parsons of Lubbock, Hanna Gonzales of Lubbock, Hallie Richardson of Lubbock, Paige Gonzales of Spur, Landry Cheyne of Andrews, Landon Richardson of Guthrie, and Raylee Cheyne of Andrews; and great-great grandchildren Witten and Liam Parsons of Lubbock.

Ina was a loving wife, mother, and granny. She will be greatly missed.

The family would like to thank Calvert Hospice for their excellent care, giving our Mom the right to stay home and be comfortable.

Graveside services for Ina were held 10:00 a,m, Saturday April 1, 2023 at the Spur Memorial Cemetery under the direction of Zapata Funeral Home.
