When her sons were young she worked as an Avon Representative and later retired from Gibson’s after twenty two years. Her true passion was her flower gardens.

Up until last year, Inez still worked in her yard at the home she and Paul purchased in 1963. She was an avid supporter of Blue Jay football, music and theatre. Later she followed KSU sports. Productions at the C.L. Hoover Opera House would frequently find Inez in her designated seat.
