BELL, Inez Hart

Inez Hart Bell, 99, passed away peacefully on September 18, 2013 - three months shy of her 100th birthday. She was born on December 16, 1913 in Odessa, FL and moved to West Palm Beach as a child. She attended elementary, junior high and high school in West Palm Beach, graduating from Palm Beach High School in 1929. She attended Florida Southern College, majoring in music and taught at Palmetto Elementary School until her marriage in 1938 to Leslie Bell. She was a member of First Methodist Church (now United Methodist Church of the Palm Beaches) and was the full-time organist there for many years. She was an active member of the PEO Sisterhood, Chapter J, for 60 years. Inez loved music, needlework and reading. Most of all she loved her family and being a homemaker was her greatest joy. She was predeceased by her husband of 62 years, Leslie B. Bell; her parents, Clarence and Mae Hart and her brother, C.O. Hart, Jr. She is survived by her daughter, Linda Bell Gilreath (Nelson) of Tampa, her son, Robert L. Bell of West Palm Beach, four grandchildren, Leslie Langford and Jay Langford (Susan) of Tampa; Aileen Bell Henratty and Robert Hollan Bell of West Palm Beach. She was the great-grandmother of Madden Langford and Barrett Langford of Tampa. Her family wishes to thank Jennifer King, Cherry Hightower and Beverly Brown for their loving care and for helping her last years to be happy and comfortable in her home; Vanna Mitrov and Debbie Gonzalez of Vanna's Hair and Nails for keeping her beautiful until her last day; and Dr. Sridhar Vennamaneni and his staff for their attentive and compassionate care. She lived a full and happy life with many friends and we are grateful to God for giving us so many wonderful years with her. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 28, 2013 in the chapel of the United Methodist Church of the Palm Beaches, 900 Brandywine Road, West Palm Beach, 33409.
