Nan was a special and unique person who always made you feel like she was everyone's grandmother. Her smile or hand knitted gift are a few of the great memories that I will remember. I hope that all the family finds comfort in knowing that they have a very special angel that is watching over them. My deepest sympathy to you all. RIP Nan. You will be missed dearly.

So sorry. Thoughts and prayers are with you and you family. Never will forget her pies. I still have the crochet things she made for my first born. I remember we would stop to see her she would be cleaning or baking and many times your dad would be running the sweeper. I use to kid them about the house was already too clean, take care

I'm so very sorry for all of you for the loss of such a beloved lady. I have never met Inez, but Gina has told me so much about her. I lost my Grandma not to long ago and she lived a long memorable life as well. I can see it now, Inez and my Grandmother {Rose} will find eachother, become friends and bake and knit together. One day, we will be reunited with our loved ones. Inez is now experiencing the joy of being in the presence of Jesus.

Gina, Rhonda, and Family: I know Inez put a smile on everyones face. I wish that i can say that I have had the honor to meet her and to smile in her presence, but I did not have that special opportunity. What I can say, is that I have looked over many family photos and have heard many little stories, and just seeing her and hearing about her put a smile on my face and a warmth in my heart. She will definitely be missed by many that she knows, and many others that she is unaware of. It is said "When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.” Inez will forever be treasured.

What we have once enjoyed we can never lose;All that we love deeply becomes part of us and who we have become ;The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen ,not touched but are felt and left in our hearts and never forgotten This phrase describes how deeply loved and honored Nan was by all she touched ,even as I listened to all the stories told by Gina about Nan ,she was a legacy of love , kindness and a refined angel .. My deepest sympathy

Our heartfelt condolences to Gina and the Lutes and Franks families. Although we did not have the good fortune to have known her personally, the way Gina and Pat spoke of her to us, we know what a wonderful person she was and what a great loss this is. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. Lisa and David

From the time I met Inez she always treated me as if she had known me for my whole life. I called her Nan, as if she was my grandmother related by blood. Yet I had only known her since I was sixteen. I remember looking forward to Sunday afternoon lunches with Nan and Theresa. They always made me feel as though I were a part of the family from day one. I will always remember Nan for her cheeky comments, her delicious meatballs, and her overall positive and uplifting attitude. But most of all, I will remember how welcoming she was to every person she met and how much love she expressed toward each person who walked through her front door. Rest in peace, Nan. You will be greatly missed.

I had the pleasure of meeting Nan on a few occasions. I was honored to have the opportunity to have spent time with her. Always surrounded by family and love! Gina your love and devotion to your grandmother will be with her forever! She always had you to count on for everything she faced in life. The good times, the hard times and the bad. I know you will cherish your memories of her and carry her in your heart as will your mom and sister and nieces and everyone one else she touched in her beautiful long life. Not many of us have the opportunity to have a grandmother with us as long as you have, so the Lord truly blessed all of you with a life full of memories to cherish and treasure. My thoughts are with you all and much love to each of you and Nan. All my Love, Karen Caponi
Marcy (friend of Gina) left a message on May 13, 2014:
My sincerest of condolences to the family. I never had the opportunity to meet Nan in person but I feel like I knew her through Gina. I would get pictures, stories, and enjoy the goodies they would make together. And without ever meeting me, Nan still knit me a beautiful towel which I cherish. Her giving and loving character extended beyond her physical reach. Gina - you were her angel on earth and now Nan will be your angel in heaven! Together forever! My love to you both!
