Inez is a 1948 graduate of Hopewell High School and was employed for many years as the manager of Hopewell Heights Apartments.

Inez loved to travel, and took many cruises with her best friend, Elaine Balderson of Tappahannock, Virginia, whose sons Trente and Troy she always considered as her own. Inez will be remembered for the strength of her convictions, for her love and support for her family and friends, and for her tenacious independence until the very last days of her life. The family wishes to express their special appreciation to her caregivers, Iola Morton and Brenda Bland, for her neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. Perry Powers, and for her physicians, Dr. Agha Haider and Dr. Christopher Miller.
