Inez Dowden turns 102

Article Image Alt Text

By Elaine Hodge Marze

Called “Big” Inez by many relatives because of another family member with the same name, it doesn’t make much sense to the non-related observer because she is such a physically tiny woman. Inez West Dowden will celebrate her 102nd birthday with family and friends this Friday at the Sabine Retirement & Rehabilitation Home in Many, where she has lived the past two years. Asked why she thought she had lived so long, Mrs. Dowden replied, “Only the Lord knows,” and she gives Him all the credit for her long life. She has been a member of Prewitt’s Chapel Baptist Church in Hornbeck for the better part of a century. It is surprising that a woman of her age doesn’t need glasses, but Inez can read without any problem though she is mighty deaf, and visitors usually have to write out any questions they have for her.
