I remember Inez from 66 yrs. ago ! She would take her son, Mike, Fonda Phillips Engle & me to Kindergarten in directly behind the Vermillion County Hospital I’m in 700 blk on S. 4th where Paul & Phyllis Holbert lived & then they moved to the brick home - 1400 blk on S. Main where Gerry & Judy Dick lived. When we went to Old Central - Mike would wAlk to Fonda’s home & then they’d come by for me & we’d walk sometimes - hand in hand. Inez & our parents would take turns taking us to Old Central School also if it was raining.
When we were in 3rd Grade - Margo Pesavento Fenoglio was our teacher. If was a cold March day when we carried our books from 3rd St to 8th Dt. on Blackman. Our parents were told they could park & take our picture when walking. My Mother did v
About 5 yrs. ago Margo Fenoglio told me all the books were to be backed up & sent. Central School decided at the last minute “ have the students carry them !”
Now I have taught Inez’s great grandson - Jack Smith several times - good student.
So glad my path crossed many yrs. ago on this “ Pathway of Life “ with Inez’s Path !

Inez was just a wonderful lady. Always enjoyed visiting with her when she came into the flower shop. Her and Jack were just the best. What a great legacy they have left- a wonderful family.. Thinking of all of the family now, What  great memories they have to share and cherish.
