Inge Sheffield

Bangs - Inge Gisela (Becht) Sheffield, age 90, resident of Bangs Nursing Home passed away Sunday, January 23, 2022.

Celebration of Life for Inge will be held at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, January 29, 2022, at Blaylock Funeral Home Chapel; private interment will be held at a later date. Arrangements are under the direction of Blaylock Funeral Home of Brownwood.

Inge was born on May 29, 1931, in Frankfurt, Germany. She met her soulmate, Kenneth Sheffield, in Germany in 1952 and they married in 1953. Inge came to America shortly after becoming a United States Citizen. Kenneth and Inge were a military family and lived in many states and Germany throughout Kenneth's 20 years of service to his country.

After their military life, they retired to Colorado Springs, Colorado. Inge worked at the Broadmoor Hotel, becoming a Housekeeper Inspector. Inge went to El Paso Community College during this time and with seven children at home, she earned her degree in Hotel Management. Kenneth and Inge moved back to Texas in 1976 to be closer to family, but the mountains were always calling them back home. In 1994, they answered that call and moved back to Colorado Springs, where they remained. Inge came to Texas in 2013 to visit, until her health did not allow her to return to her beloved mountains.

Inge enjoyed knitting, crocheting, cooking, her family, being outdoors, and traveling.

Inge is survived by her six children, Patricia "Pat" Arnold, Jacqueline "Jackie" Oliver and husband Rodney, Timothy Sheffield and wife Treva, Barbara McDaniels and husband Douglas, Keith Sheffield, and Melissa "Lisa" Kirchner; son-in-law, Bill Powell; 12 grandchildren; 23 great-grandchildren; and 6 great-great-grandchildren. She is also survived by many other loving relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Kenneth Sheffield; a daughter, Lori Powell; son-in-law, Robin Arnold; granddaughter, Samantha Lavengood; great-grandson, Stetson Hogue; father, Hermann Becht; mother and stepfather, Katharina Gunser and Hans Gunser; 2 brothers-in-law, Butch Sheffield and Tony Leggieri.

The family wishes to express their sincerest "Thank you" to the staff at Bangs Nursing Home for their love, care, support, and excellent care of their mother, for holding her and us during the good times and bad.

In lieu of flowers the family request donations to be made to the Bangs Nursing Home (1105 Fritzgerald St. Bangs, Texas 76823) in Inge's memory.

Online condolences for the family are welcome at www.blaylockfuneralhome.com.
