Together they had two sons, John William and Lee Joseph. Inez held many office/administrative positions throughout her career, including Yankton College, USD and the Yankton Medical School. She moved to Pierre in 1979 and was the office manager at St. Mary's Hospital. She retired in 1982 and they then moved to Sioux Falls to be closer to their son, John. They returned to Yankton in 1994 and moved back into their home they continued to maintain all these years. After her retirement Inez began working for the South Dakota Magazine where she remained to 12 years.

Inez led a varied and interesting life and was always willing to go the extra mile in anything she was involved with. She was active in the Girl Scouts serving as leader, director and president.
