She attended Fort Dodge Senior High School and subsequently attended Long Beach Trade School, attaining a certification in data entry.
Inez married Gary Ewing, July 30, 1960 in Fort Dodge, Iowa and celebrated 62 years with the love of her life, this past July. The two had four children, Tami, Michael, Dennis, and Mia.
