Inez was born August 24, 1929, in Warrick Country, the daughter of Lloyd and Martha Ellison. She married her high school sweetheart Garrell A. Leslie on April 19, 1947, in Boonville, Indiana. He preceded her in death on December 23, 2008.
Inez was a beautician for over 40 years in Maroa, Tuscola and Atwood. We are so thankful for the Christian love, kindness and giving mother than made her so precious to us. She was known for being such a wonderful cook and baker. Those who knew her knew there would always be a place at her table.
Surviving are her children: Rick (Cathy) Leslie of Glenarm, IL., Cynthia (Larry) Day of Decatur, IL., Donna (Steve) Fisher of Omaha, Nebraska, and Kathy Leslie of Indianapolis, IN; 12 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. Her sister June (Robert) Scales of Chandler, IN also survives.
Our family would like to thank those who cared for mom in her final years of life: Dr. Pabalate, Dr. Telle and Harbor Light Hospice staff. We would also like to thank Imboden Creek Gardens and Living Center for not only taking excellent care of our mother but for all of the tenderness, kindness and love that was given to our whole family. All of you will have a special place in our hearts.
