Inez was a member of Forestville Baptist Church for 65 years. She was active in many areas of service throughout her lifetime as an officer in Sunday School, WMU, PTA, as well as serving food to those who were bereaved, the needy, friends and family. She enjoyed reading, cooking and baking. But her passion was being an excellent daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.
Her daughter-in-law (Debbie) of 45 years said of Inez, "She is the kindest person I've ever known. I've never heard her say an ill word about anyone".
