Among my favorite memories of Ina involve her gameness: for live music - we saw Aïda together, listened to classical programs at Ravinia, and of course, saw musicals, like Les Miserables; for new food - the first time I ever had Uzbek cuisine was with her for lunch to celebrate her 80th birthday; and her travels far and wide will always inspire. What a gem. May Ina‘s memory be for blessing.

Ina was a friend and colleague at Marshall Fields. She helped me in selecting children's clothes, and I helped her in intimate apparel. Unfortunately we lost touch over the years since then, but I remember her smile, quick wit and certainly the colorful scarves and socks. I was sorry to learn of her passing, but glad to know that in spite of all the misfortunes that befell her, she led a rich and long life. May those memories bring you comfort.
