Inez was kind, determined, observant, and always learning. I admired her so much and learned so much from her. She was a wonderful, supportive wife to my dad, Jeff, stepmother to me, and "Nanez" to my sons. Prayers for peace and comfort.

So sorry to hear about the passing of Mrs. Inez. She was such a great lady. She used to do my mom's hair so many years ago. May she rest in peace. She will be missed.
