I met Inge as child when my mother worked with her at Union Bank. She always had a kind word and a piece of bubble gum. I reconnected with her at my job in our Church years later and she was as kind as ever. Eternal rest grant upon them O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.
Inga was part of our family. She came to all holidays...Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving ETC. She was also one of my mothers very best friends and was there for her when she past away. She was very devoted to her church. She was a blessing to all that knew her. Marie Duke
Inge and I met in the late 60’s at Union Bank of Benton. She was a good friend and we spent a lot of time together in those early years. Glad we can now celebrate her home going. Love her! Joan
