Margaret lnez Burnett, 93, of Fairfield, passed away Thursday, April 16, 2020 in Fairfield. A private family graveside service is scheduled for Friday, April 17, 2020 at Fairfield Cemetery. A memorial service is planned and will be announced at a later date.
lnez was born August 11, 1926 in Waco TX to parents John Taylor Williams, Sr. and Minnie Lea Grant. Inez graduated from Wichita Falls High School in 1943 and received her Bachelor’s degree in physical education from Hardin College in 1949 along with a teaching
certificate in elementary education.
On June 18, 1949 lnez married James August Burnett, Jr. She taught kindergarten and first grade for 13 years then went on to work at Bracewell Library in Houston for eight
years. ln 1976, lnez completed her Master's in Library Science. Two years later, she became the librarian at Fairfield High School. lnez retired in 2003 after 25 years of service.
ln addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her husband James August Burnett, Jr.; her sister Martha Jim Williams; her sister & brother-in-law Dorothy and Wayne
Parton; her sister and brother-in-law Bettye and Don Stout; and her brother and sister-in-law John and Ernie Williams.
Left to cherish her memory are her four children: Mike Burnett and wife Sam of Port O'Connor TX; Gail DiGeronimo of Knoxville TN; Sue and Tom Hoke of Fairfield; Pat Bumett
of Fairfield; grandchildren: Christopher Stadler and wife Kristi; Angela Laham and husband Ailee; James Hoke; Molly Fleming and husband Jonathan; great-grandchildren Jax and Jett Stadler; Maya and Michael Laham; Alice Hoke; Clayton and Wyatt Fleming; and a loving church family at First Baptist Church of Fairfield.
lnez's love for the Lord showed in her service to Him, to her family, to her friends and to others. Outdoors was where she preferred to be. She looked forward to fishing in Port O'Connor and caught the biggest fish every time! lnez "wore many hats" over her lifetime (daughter, mother, wife, teacher, friend, etc.). Now she is home. God is wrapping her in His love and telling her "well done my good and faithful servant."

In lieu of flowers the family request donations to your favorite charity.

We were so sorry to hear about Inez. I remember the times I would slip into the school library and visit with her if I had a few free minutes. She was so easy to talk with, and I still hear her fun laughter. She was such a caring and loving person and was always ready to help others, whether in her role as the school librarian or the church librarian. I’m so glad I knew her. May God’s peace fill your hearts at this time.
