May 21, 1929February 23, 2019

Ms. Inez Parker Kinard, age 89 passed away Saturday, February 23, 2019. Ms. Kinard was born May 21, 1929 in Rome, Georgia to the late Tom Tant and Fannie Highfield. She lived most of her life in Polk County and was a member of Piedmont Baptist Church. In recent years, she resided at Nana’s Place in Coppell, TX, her namesake personal care home. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband Floyd Parker, daughter Teresa Kinard McVey, great grandchild Spencer Kinard, brother Robert Tant, Sisters Lois Green, Alice Purcell and Mozelle Hudgins. Survivors include daughter Jan Parker (Jack) Leathers of Coppell, Texas. Lynn Kinard Fennell of Cedartown, Grandchildren Cody Kinard, Taylor Leathers, Lacey Etheridge, Parker Leathers, Great Grandson Karson Ruff and Great Granddaughter Madeline Kinard. She is also survived by brother Tommy (Laura) Tant and numerous nieces, nephews and friends. “Nana”, as all who knew her, was loved and adored by her family and many friends. She was a loving Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt and friend. Always greeting others with a smile on her face, she never met a stranger. She was genuinely a kind, sweet person and anyone that knew her loved her. She enjoyed traveling and cruises, including Alaska, the Caribbean, and the Mediterranean. She also loved watching her favorite baseball team, the Braves, attending several games in Atlanta. Dancing, “shaking a leg” with her brother, Tommy was also one of her favorite past times. We will miss her so very much and would like to thank her wonderful Caregivers and the many friends that dropped by Nana’s Place to spend time with her.

I met Inez Kinard over 30 years ago when I became friends with Teresa and Lynn. She was always good to me and we soon became friends. I would go to spend time with her whether her daughters were home or not. She would listen when I needed a shoulder, she would give me good advice and she also fed me many times. I will never forget our trips to the woods, sometimes the N. Georgia Mountains to gather moss. She was a hard worker and a wise woman with a good heart.
I will never forget you Inez. You will be forever in my ❤️
This is not good bye forever for I will see you again someday.

I met Inez some 40 years ago. Her girls were young and well mannered. I learned what a hard worker she was, supporting her girls and buying her house. The place she worked was the one that made the helium balloons that float in the air in the Christmas parades we see on television. Her hospitality was extened to us and later her trusting nature showed. She allowed Lynn to come to AL to stay with me for 2 weeks. That was the year Jan got sun posion from staying in the sun too long at Gulf Shores. Inez was always very sweet. Even though I didn't stay close to her, I thought of her often. She will be missed very much . RIP Inez.

I remember Inez from years ago. I remember her being a sweet & very patient lady. She kept me & my brothers when we were kids & lived in Rockmart, Ga. We were friends with Teresa, Lynne & Jan. My condolences to the family.

I remember many days and nights in the home of Inez with her children. She was a loving Mother and a good friend to our family. She was missed when she moved to Texas and will be missed more on earth now that she is with Jesus. But I can just imagine the dancing she is doing on those golden streets! We love you all and are praying for you as you grieve her loss.
