Inez was a great cook with a great sense of humor who enjoyed crocheting, knitting and sewing. She loved her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren very much; they were the prize of her life. Inez also enjoyed her occasional travels which included Hawaii and New York City. She enjoyed hunting and was known by her family as an accomplished marksman. Inez loved watching Twins baseball and professional golf.
