           Inez Yvonne Davis Rodgers was born on February 12, 1936, in Ahoskie, North Carolina.  She was the daughter of Gilbert Maxey and Sue Mountain Maxey.  Inez professed her love for Christ at a young age and she ws baptized. 

 

She was united in Holy Matrimony to Donald Rodgers. Their union spanned the years, and they were separated only by his death. 

 

Inez, with her husband and family moved to Indianapolis, Indiana.  Here she joined the Christian fellowship of the Mount Vernon Community Missionary Baptist Church.  She loved her church, joyfully served under the leadership of her pastors, and endeared herself to many of her fellow members. 

 

Inez  was a loving, dedicated mother and grandparent.  She   never met a stranger, and her heart was open to everyone.  She had a love for baseball– The Chicago White Sox in particular, fishing and western movies.  Endowed with a strong work ethic, she retired from American Fletcher National Bank (AFNB), where she was an key punch operator. 

 

Inez Yvonne Davis Rodgers entered peacefully into the Heavenly Gates on January 3, 2020.  She was preceded in death by her parents.

 

Inez leaves to cherish her memory three sons, Gilbert (Debbie) Davis, Gregory (Carol) Rodgers and Gerald Rodgers, and a daughter,    Donita (Jessie) Patrick; grandchildren, Gilbert R. “Li’l Gil” Davis, Kara Laura Davis Williams, Kori Inez Morgan, Christie Rodgers and Tameka; great grandchildren, Kai; brothers, John (Alvera) Maxey, William (Ailena)Maxey and Eric Maxey; sisters, Pamela (Benny) Torrence and Tina (Deron) Booze, generations of nephews and nieces, a host of other relatives, the Mount Vernon Community Missionary Baptist Church family and many friends.

 

Forever In Our Hearts

Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow, but remember me in every tomorrow.

Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles, I've only gone to rest a while.

 Although my leaving causes pain and grief, my going has eased my hurt and given me relief.  So dry your eyes and remember me, not as I am now but as I used to be.

 I will remember you all and look on with a smile, understand in your hearts I've only gone to rest a while.  As long as I have the love of each of you,      I can live my life in the hearts of all of you.

 

Humbly Submitted…………….The Family
