The family wishes to thank the entire staff of A.O. Fox Nursing Home for the kind and compassionate care given to Inez during her stay there, and also the countless others who provided love and support to her.

Her funeral service will be at 1 p.m. Tuesday at the Dimbleby, Friedel, Williams & Edmunds Funeral Home, 365 W. Main St., West Winfield, NY 13491. Interment will follow in Newport Cemetery. Calling hours at the funeral home will begin at 11 a.m. prior to the funeral.
