Mona Combs

On Friday, February 28th, our precious mother and grandmother, Mona Combs, went to see her Lord and Savior. She had longed for some time to go to Heaven. Mona was in her 82nd year.

The youngest of three children, Mona Marlene Lemon was born on Aug. 23rd, 1931, at Eunice. She was the daughter of the late Lotus and Nelta Broom Lemon. A brother, Carlos, and a sister, Agnes Milam, have preceded her in death.

Currently a resident of Beckley, Mona lived in Arnett for many years. A devoted wife and mother to her family, Mona had worked in retail as a clerk.

Mona was married to the late Clarence Roy Combs. To this union were born three children. Vicky Waller of Saxon, Terry Combs and his wife, Pamela, of Arnett and Vanessa Clack and her husband, Calvin, of Danville, Calif.; she was the doting grandmother to Jerry Lee Waller and his wife, Mira, Erica Lynn Otey, Matthew Combs and his wife, Tammy, and Eli Combs and his wife, Chrystal; she was the proud great-grandmother of eight great-grandchildren; a special nephew, Andrew Milam, survives as well.

When Mona’s family remember her they recall her love of family, friends, and going to church. They will forever cherish her memory.

Funeral services will be Saturday, March 8th, at 1 p.m. at the Arnett Chapel. Pastors Larry Kinder and Gene Miller will be officiating. Mona will be laid to rest in the Sunset Memorial Park. The family will receive friends at the church on Friday, March 7th, from 6 to 9 p.m. and one hour prior to the services on Saturday.
