I will always love you Aunt Ina and remember the good times we had together. You were always good to My daddy John Smith and my Mom Betty. It was fun going over to your house. Always had your poodle dogs. Always wanting to fix us something to eat. I remember all your nick nacks, all your pictures of your 2 daughters Patty and Linda
and then they got married. So then pictures of your grandchildren, great grandchildren. I just love the stories that you told us about your brothers and sisters. Good stories about Grandma and Grandpa Smith . I was so thankful that me and my husband Donnie Sennett went to see you on Labor Day. And you knew both of us. And had a great visit with you and Patty.
... God Bless till we meet again in Heaven !!! Love my cousins Patty and Linda for taking care of my Aunt Ina.❤❤Read more

My sweet Aunt Ina, you obviously made a great impression on me as a young girl. I always remember going to your house atv701 E Rock in Mcalester. Weird ive held that address in my mind all these years ,because i don't have tihe greastest memory. It must be do to how loved I felt being there with you. I do remember all your photos on the wall, your kitchen nic knacks, the Mrs Butterworth syrup bottle , i believe you had told me my mom painted. As a child i loved going to your house , seeing you and playing on the swing in the back yard. That little bridge in the front yard and honeysuckles. I remember Uncle Ray s el camino. I think it was his anyway. If more people were like you an...d had your zest for life and kindness the world would be a better place. My only regret is my sisters and I didnt get grow up there around you and the rest of the family. However, the love I felt from you back then will stay with me forever. The day after you passed I was eating lunch at a restaurant i looked out the window and i saw someone who looked like your twin and i told my daughter i thought i just saw my aunt Ina. I felt peace seeing you which at that moment i didnt know why. It was actually a few minutes later my sister Lora had informed me of your passing the day before. Tears filled my eyes and saddness filled my heart, As i thought of you, more peace came over me, knowing you are home with the Lord and not in pain. I could imagine all the family waiting to embrace you in Heavem.I love you beautiful Aunt Ina. Ill see you again one day.
Love your niece Lisa Smith.
Im including a picture i screen shot of Ina s house i did a google search of. Not exactly the same but the little bridge is still there in this picture.

I always knew Ina as “Big Ma”. She did have a big personality and was always so much fun to be around. You could always count on her for an honest answer and solid advice. My condolences to all that loved her and may her memory continue to bring joy and love to the hearts of many.
