Please note: if you just submitted a tribute, it is pending approval.
    • I just found out that Inge passed away. My sincere sympathy to all of Inge’s family.
      My mom worked for many years with Inge at the court house. Mom enjoyed those years..
      I would visit mom during holidays and summer, and that included walking with Inge and other friends and having coffee. There was lots of coffee and good conversation, and of course a little shopping many Saturday mornings at Target.
      God’s peace to you.

    • Hi to inge’s family,
      So sorry to hear about her death. The first of our 4 people sorority. (Our inside joke.) I still have my pin. She will never be forgotten as we enjoyed our Wednesday night dominoes, coffee clutches and visiting together in our apartments. I am unable to go shopping and don’t have access to cash because of where I now live and because of this darn virus so at least I can send this message to the tribute wall.
      My deepest sympathy to all of you.
      Hugs, Bev

    • We were blessed to know Inge, she was beautiful inside out. We will miss her kindness and friendly smile. Condolences to her family. 🙏🏼 God bless all of you and comfort you. ❤️
