Ina Mae Bell Disheroon

Service: Celebration of Life at 10 a.m. Friday, April 26, at Osage Baptist Church, with interment at Fair Grove Cemetery; Visitation: 6-8 p.m. Thursday, April 25, at Smith Family Funeral Home in Green Forest.

Ina Mae Bell Disheroon, age 92, of Harrison, left this world on Monday, April 22 (2019) for her Eternal Home where she is now residing  forever with her Savior and Lord Jesus Christ.  

Ina was born Feb. 14, 1927, at Osage, the daughter of James Frank and Mattie Thorne Bell (she was born again in 1946). She graduated from Alpena High School in 1945 and on May 1 of that year she married Earl Disheroon. 

After living in Oklahoma for a short time, they moved back to Arkansas and bought a farm and a business called Carrollton Store. In 1993 they built a home in Harrison and have lived there ever since.   

Ina Mae was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother, always putting others needs first. At age 51 she fulfilled her lifelong dream of being a nurse and worked at NARMC  for a number of years before volunteering at several care facilities including Hillcrest and Hospice. 

She loved reading, painting, sewing, writing, cooking and especially loved teaching God’s Word. One of her favorite Bible verses was Matthew 6:33.  She was a charter member of Osage Baptist Church for over 50 years teaching Sunday school most of those years and working in various other capacities of the church. Shortly after moving to Harrison she and Earl hosted a Bible Study in their home as they continued attending Osage Baptist Church. 

Ina had a unique ability to make people feel at home and welcome. So every Wednesday, for over 18 years, she thoroughly enjoyed inviting people into their home where she taught, cooked and served others.  

Ina leaves  behind her husband of 74 years (May 1, 2019) Earl Disheroon; four children, Ginger Reed and husband Joe, of Kilgore, Texas, Mike Disheroon and wife Pam, of Carrollton, Cindy Fehrman and husband Steve, of Lusby, Maryland, and Susan Gloor and husband OJ, of Harrison; and one sister Johnny Moore, of Berryville. She had 19 grandchildren and 24 great-grandchildren.  

She was preceded in death by her parents and one pre-born child. 

Celebration of Life will be at 10 a.m. Friday, April 26, at Osage Baptist Church with Pastor Lannie Younger officiating. Interment will follow at Fair Grove Cemetery.  Visitation will be 6-8 p.m. Thursday April 25, at Smith Family Funeral Home in Green Forest.   

In lieu of flowers, Ina requested memorials to Osage Baptist Church, Gideon’s, Ron Hutchcraft Ministries, or Hospice in Harrison.
