My condolences to Inez' family. I have many fond memories of times spent with my mother and Inez on Wednesday night bingo as a young girl. I also stayed with her at the lake many times. She was a very kind lady and I treasure our times spent together. Rest in peace Inez.

So. Any happy memories from this beautiful person, she always referred to my hubby as my boyfriend! Was always more than willing to let them be friends, we both loved her.

Thinking of you, Sandy and family 💞 I always very much enjoyed visiting with Inez when I had the opportunity to see her at your place and admired her 💓

My condolences to all of you. Strangely, I just spoke of Inez as we spent a few hours in Grenfell on Sunday and were reminiscing about ”old timers”. Little did I know that she had so recently passed. You were so fortunate to have had her for such a long time, and for her to have been so bright and independent and able to be involved. Treasure all those amazing memories.

It was much later in my life that I got to know Auntie, so only have recent memories of her. Though she may have been in her nineties before I spent time visiting with her; her spirit, determination, love for family and resourcefulness all shone through even then....she was quite the lady!
