Memories Timeline


  1. My heart is saddened by your loss of this precious family member. Thank you for sharing her with me> Neighbors and friends who relied on each other for a laugh and a smile or a simple hand wave But we loved to talk and look out for one another We used secret knocks on the door so we knew who was there for safety sake Just a simple special friendship for a loving friends Gone but never forgotten God bless you Keep smiling Much Love Marcia

  2. My condolences go out to Inez’s family. From grade school to our 45th class reunion Inez was always standing there with her great smile and friendly hug. You will be missed Inez but never forgotten.

  3. Inez was a dear friend of ours. We met at Freedom Fellowship church, Inez was the maid-of-honor in our wedding. Inez went to Germany with Diane and I in 1982. I remember us having to hurry to get to where the Rhein river cruise ship would depart from and got to see Inez run using her crutches. I didn’t know she could move that fast. She continued to amaze us on this trip. When we went to visit some of my German cousins in Weener-Ems, they took us to a farm that had the Dutch style windmills. We were told we could climb up into the heart of the windmill. This required climbing a tall ladder which Inez did. We will miss her. With Jesus Christ in our hearts the best is yet to be.

  4. Inez will be greatly missed, she was such a joy to be around. she was very much a carefree person with a great personality and always smiling she never seemed to let any obstacle get in her way. she will surely be missed by all who knew her. Cousin Winston Hill & family

  5. I’ve know Inez for about 40 years. We were friends when we both attended Freedom Fellowship. She was such a precious and loving person. We moved away from New Braunfels in 1991 and had lost touch, but I never forgot her sweet smile and courageous spirit! She is now in the arms of her Savior; happy, healed and in perfect peace! I envy her! She will be missed.

  6. Although I hadn’t seen Inez in some time, she always reflected the joy of The Lord! What a blessing she was to all who knew her. Now she has complete victory! Prayers for her family at this difficult time.

  7. I have known Inez since third grade and am so sad to hear of her passing. Inez always had a big smile for everyone. I know she will be missed by her family and all her friends. She was a privilege to know. You can take comfort that she is completely healed and in the comfort of the Lord’s arms. With love, Patty Brucks Valentine

  8. Our deepest sympathy to the family on the loss of dear sweet Inez. I have such fond memories of her as we grew up together. She was such a special person. God Bless You, Pat & Ken

  9. I remember Inez from Carl Schertz Elementary. I was in the 6th grade and Inez was in 3rd grade. She was such a cute little girl with long dark hair and, of course, the brace on her leg although it didn’t seem to slow her down. My sincere condolences to her family as she left us much too soon as her soul continues on its everlasting journey. We will all eventually join her in her travels. May her travels be sweet and light and happy.

  10. Inez is a very dear friend. We have A Lot of special memories. In the 70’s we enjoyed taking macraming and decoupaging classes together. On most weekends we always got together with other friends for great fellowship that was centered around a Bible study. In 1979 the two of us were really adventurous, flying to Denver,Co. Once there we had a great time sight-seeing on tour buses. When Walter and I got married Inez was my maid of honor. The list goes on of special times we had together over the years. Looking forward to the extra special times we will have together in Heaven! Love you Inez, my sister in Christ.
