Inez’s greatest accomplishment was becoming a teacher, which she enjoyed and was passionate about. She was a proud mother and grandmother. She enjoyed watching her grandchildren and children play sports, and she played sports as well. Inez also had a special horse, Davey, with whom she had a close bond. After retiring from teaching she enjoyed beading, watching movies and TV soaps, snacking, going to church services, and visiting with friends and family. She will be greatly missed and forever in our hearts.
