As a child I viewed Inez in awe. She seemed larger than life. That’s because she was. It always seemed she knew everything and could do anything. That’s because she did and she could. No one I’ve known had a greater zest for life, lived it to the fullest and enrich the lives of everyone she encountered more than Inez did. Her laugh was infectious, her smile mischievous or compassionate depending the situation. She touched the lives of so many people… many of them members of my family. Anyone who had the privilege of knowing Inez whether it be in passing or over the span of a lifetime was the better for it. As an adult I will always remember her with that same sense of awe. She was a truly wonderful in every way possible.
I remember Mrs. Willis, then known as Inez White, from the early 1980s when she did a good job as the Registrar at Large for the Grundy County Election Commission.
My sincere sympathy is extended to her family and friends.
