She started her career in the housekeeping department and as a nursing assistant at the Cleveland Clinic. Inez’s passion for caring and compassion led her to nursing school where she became a nurse at the Cleveland Clinic Research Department where she retired from.
Ms. Patterson has been a faithful and devoted member of the Cory United Methodist Church, where she served on the Usher Board and was a founding member of the Junior Usher Board. In earlier years she loved to dance and enjoyed bowling. Inez continued to bowl until the age of 98, with an average score of 203.
