Condolence & Memory Journal

I always enjoyed my visits with Ina and Wendell when I would come back to Johns Creek to visit. She was a very generous and kind person and we ate plenty of her delicious food seated in her kitchen. Such a dear lady who gave of herself to her church, her friends, and her community. I had sent her a Christmas card this year and it had been returned. I knew then that she must have been moved to another area for more constant care. I did enjoy my visit with her before that and walking her to the beauty shop. Now she is singing in heavens choir. Love to you all.

I had the pleasure of meeting this amazing lady while visiting my mom at the Oaks. I volunteered on Tuesdays when we did nails and had the pleasure of learning about sweet Ina's full life. She touched my heart and I will always be thankful that I met her. She made the world a brighter place.

Ina was one very classy lady....I volunteer on Tuesdays at The Oaks and she was always one of the first to come to the Allegheny Room to get her nails painted....she always had a smile !!!!! Loved talking to her about her day....She also was one heck of a bingo player.....She loved her Bingo....I have missed her since she left The Oaks and I was sad to hear of her passing....She will be missed!!

Ina was my special friend while I was visiting Mrs. Padgett at the Oaks. We shared the same birthday just a few years different. I will always remember what a happy person she was. She had that special twinkle in her eyes and she always loved to dance, sing and play bingo. May you find peace remembering her life at this time and in the future.

She will be missed by my mama, Susie Snavely, her roommate at Richfield. I met her for the first time this past weekend. I loved her immediately. My mother is very sad tonight and thought she was a very sweet lady. We are so sorry she is gone. Prayers for you all.

Will never forget Wendall on the tractor driving thru the woods with Ina hanging on. Sitting on the porch watching the hummingbirds. Her stories of growing up in Paint Bank to her running the post office in Maggie to her working with the Fire Dept. She was a special lady.
