Inez Duncan passed on to the next stage — a better place — Saturday, April 12, 2014 in Paso Robles. She was the oldest of 12 children of James L. Glover and Ethel Edna Glover (Lynn). Inez was born in Byers, Texas on Feb. 11, 1913. She lived her childhood in Texas and her early adult life was in Southern California. She moved to North San Luis Obispo County in the late 60s and spent the rest of her life there. She was active with the San Luis Obispo County Cowbelles and the Paso Robles Senior Center, meeting many people and making many friends.
Inez lived a full life, living through WWI, the Depression and WWII. She wasn’t “Rosie the Riveter,” but she did work in a defense plant during WWII building aircrafts. In her retirement years, she travelled the world, visiting 49 of the 50 states and six of the seven continents.
She outlived her husbands and two of their three children; Joan McComas, her daughter, and Mike Palmer, her youngest son. She is survived by Jay and Ginger Palmer, her oldest son and daughter-in-law. She is also survived by many grandchildren, includuing great- and great-great-grandchildren.
In attendance for her 100th birthday last year were 101 relatives, kids, grandkids, four sisters and one brother. Her surviving sisters are Leah (Berta) Essex of Clovis, Gwen Hillskemper (Bob) of Yorba Linda, Pat Stephenson of Oregon, Donna Brooks of Oregon and her brother, Ren Glover (Doris) of Nevada.
She now joins two brothers and four sisters who preceded her departure.
The family would like to extend their appreciation to Dr. Bourne and Nurse Nancy and the staff at Creston Village. Their attitude was always very positive!
Our most sincere and deepest appreciation we give to Central Coast Hospice. What a great organization.
Our special thanks to Katie, one of the many hospice nurses, for all of her visits and the help she gave. She was truly like one of the family.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Inez’s name to the Central Coast Hospice or any charity of your choice.
