Ines and Pepe raised their two sons in Queens, New York and afterwards moved the family to San Diego, California in 1979. After 17 years in California her beloved Pepe passed away. She eventually moved to Boca Raton, Florida where she lived peacefully - always close to her family.
Ines enjoyed spending time with her grandkids and going out with her friends. She was fiercely independent and getting by on her own was a source of pride. She enjoyed volunteering at Election Halls and was proud to have become a US citizen while in NY in the year 2000.
Her sense of humor was contagious and we will miss her tremendously.
