Inge Jones was born on August 18,1953, as Ingeborg Menzel in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Born to Herbert Menzel and Alina Menzel, she went to high school in Winnipeg and had her first child in 1972. In 1977, she moved to Vancouver, British Columbia, where she had her second child. She met Steven Barrett, who would later become her husband, in 1978, and had her third child in 1982.
Inge met her current husband, Robert Jones, in the late 1980s, and it was love at first sight. They moved to Seattle in 1986 and were married in 1989. Together, they created a welcoming home and opened their doors and hearts to all who came in their presence. Inge enjoyed the outdoors, gardening, entertaining in her home, good music, dancing, fireworks, and parades. Her loved ones knew not to call her anytime on Sundays or on Monday nights because she adored her football—and every dog that Robert brought home!
Inge is survived by her brother, Herbert Menzel, her mother, Alina Menzel, and her husband Robert Jones. She will also be greatly missed by her three children, Corrina Brinson, Sebastian Barrett, and Nicholas Barrett; as well as her four grandchildren, Jasmine Brinson, Landyn Barrett, Hailey Barrett, and Brooklyn Barrett. Inge has an immense extended family made up of in-laws, friends, and other loved ones, who all will miss her dearly.
A memorial service will be held at 1pm on Tuesday Dec. 7, 2010 at Seed of Abraham Church 246 Wells Ave N Renton, WA 98057.
