Wilma Vinita

April 4, 1942 — January 1, 2020


Wilma June (Inman) Vinita 77, began the new year with her perfected heavenly body after departing this life in the early morning hours of January 1, 2020 at her daughter’s home in Illinois.

June was born to Carl and Gracie (Lewis) Inman, the third of six children on April 4, 1942, at their farm home in Alluwe, Oklahoma.   She started school in the one room Lee Square School and graduated from Alluwe High School with the class of 1960.

She married Neil Vinita; and from this union, five daughters were born.  She made homes for her children on several military bases and later located in Bartlesville, Oklahoma.  June was employed at Central States Business Forms in Dewey, Oklahoma, retiring in 2004 after 20 years of service.  She greatly enjoyed playing the piano, learning early on to play by ear.  She loved spending time with her family.  She was fond of taking trips with her brothers & sisters, family reunions and time spent with her classmates.
