Ines was born in 1934 in Cali, Colombia and immigrated to the US in 1978. She traveled the country and lived in the extreme opposites of Fairbanks, Alaska and Miami, FL before settling with family in New England. She loved to receive family and whether she was playing video games with her grandkids, playing chess on Sundays, dancing the night away or cooking up a feast, she was always the life of the party. She left this earth on her own accord, at her own time and fought hard until the very end. We will all sorely miss her, her wittiness and vivacious personality.
Ines’s life will be celebrated in a private ceremony for family at a later date. Family and friends near and far are asked to direct their condolences or share a memory below.
Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
