Inez Ione Schons, the daughter of John and Gertrude (Wefers) Zamzow, was born May 14, 1931 in Three Lakes Township, Redwood County. She grew up in Three Lakes Township and received her formal education in the local schools. Inez was baptized and confirmed at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Clements.
On June 12, 1951, Inez married Linus Schons at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Clements, and the couple made their home on a farm near Clements. Following their retirement the couple moved to Springfield. They entered Gil-Mor Manor in Morgan in January of this year.
Inez worked side-by-side with her husband on the farm. She was also employed as a chicken sexer for many years at the Morgan Hatchery and Star Hatchery in Springfield. Inez was a member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Clements and St. Raphael’s Catholic Church in Springfield, as well as the Catholic Aid and CCW. She enjoyed gardening, traveling with Linus, dancing and playing cards. Time spent with family was precious to Inez; she enjoyed going out to eat with family and friends alike.
Inez is survived by her husband Linus of Morgan and daughters Lynn (Steve) Dolan of Iowa City, Iowa and Lori (Eugene) Zempel of Morgan. Also surviving are her grandchildren Jennifer Schmidt of Morgan; Jason (Carrie) LeGare of Bettendorf, Iowa and their children Gabby, Ethan and Owen and Jeremy (Heather) LeGare of Louisville, Ky. and their daughter Elise.

She was preceded in death by her parents and brothers Delta, Marlin, Lester and John.
Blessed be her memory.
