Ina Lucille Bucklew, a Bowling Green, Ky

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. - Ina Lucille Bucklew, a Bowling Green, Ky resident for more than 50 years, passed away Dec. 13, 2013, at age 74. She was born Jan. 8, 1939, in Vine Grove to the late James and Novella Bird.

The family moved to Hopkinsville a few years after her birth. In 1955, she met the man of her dreams, Edward 'Eddie' Wayne Bucklew of Arthurdale, W.Va. They married on Jan. 10, 1956, while Eddie was stationed at Fort Campbell with the 101st Airborne Division. Later that year, the newlyweds relo-cated to Germany, where they were blessed with their first two sons, Leslie and Terry Bucklew.

In 1958, the couple returned to the United States and settled in the Cleveland, Ohio, area. In 1959, Ina gave birth to her third son, Larry Bucklew. Ina and Eddie then returned to Arthurdale, where they had their fourth son, James Bucklew. They moved one more time to the Cleveland area before finally set-tling in Bowling Green in 1964. In 1966, they were blessed with their fifth and final child, Mai Rachelle 'Shelly' Bucklew. In 1970, the family moved to 880 Greenhill Road in Bowling Green, where Ina lived until her passing.

Throughout this time, Ina held various jobs, which included being a waitress and a cook at local restau-rants and a factory worker at the Derby. She then decided to pursue higher education and completed training to become a certified surgical technician. She then worked at the city/county hospital in Bowl-ing Green for many years. All the while, Ina was devoted to raising her children. Ina left the hospital to support her husband in several local businesses, eventually becoming part owners in Murray’s restau-rant. Her final job, which endeared many friends for the rest of her life, was in the cafeteria at Green-wood High School.

Ina devoted her life to her family, her church and helping others. She was a charter member of Castle Heights Community Church and a co-founder and organizer of the Bowling Green Al-anon group. Ina worked endlessly to provide support and comfort to the wives and family members of alcoholics, mak-ing a positive impact on many lives. She also served the community as an election official and partici-pated in many local organizations, including the Christian Women’s Club (various leadership positions), 25 years in the nursing home ministry at Brithaven, the American Legion Women’s Auxiliary and monthly visitation to our military veterans at Rosewood.

Ina was preceded in death by her parents, James and Novella Bird; her husband, Eddie; her sister, Mary Jo Hagen; and brother-in-law Charles 'Freddy' Hagen.

Ina is survived by her children, including a son, Leslie Bucklew and his wife, Patti; son Terry Bucklew and his wife, Katrina; son James Bucklew and his wife, Karen; a daughter, Mai Rachelle 'Shelly' Ve-atch and her husband, Bryan, all of Bowling Green; son Larry Bucklew and his wife, Kim, of Austin, Texas; a brother, Jerry Bird and sister-in-law Barbara of Hopkinsville; brother Kenneth Bird and sister-in-law Anita of Bowling Green; 12 grandchildren, Tammy, Willie, Timmy, Suzie, Brittany, Rebecca, Chelsey, Jamie, Kara, Rachel, Simon and Victoria; five great-grandchildren, Lori, Makenzie, Keenan, Ida and Caden; and nine indirect grandchildren, Ryan, Danny, Kent, Angela, Matt, Adam, Kyle, Bran-don and Brittney.
