Inez Wade Bates, 97, passed away quietly in her sleep on December 28, 2015.

Known as "Grommie" to her five wonderful grandchildren and her seven adorable great-grandchildren, Inez was born on May 11, 1918, in D'Arbonne, Louisiana. She graduated from Louisiana Tech University and was married to Oma R. Bates, who preceded her in death in 1996.

Inez was a consummate mother and homemaker as well as an active Sunday School Teacher and Bible Study Leader at Willow Meadows Baptist Church in Houston.

She is survived by her two daughters, Martha Bates Letzerich and Ann Bates Laird, both of Houston, Texas; her sons-in-law, Edwin N.Letzerich and Marc N. Laird; and one sister, June Wade Taylor of Shreveport, Louisiana. She was preceded in death by her beloved parents, Dr. and Mrs. J.L. Wade of Arcadia, Louisiana; her brother James S. Wade of Farmerville, Louisiana; and her sister Dorothy L. Wade of Houston.

The family wishes to express its deepest appreciation and heartfelt thanks to the staff in the Independent Living area of Treemont Retirement Community, the caregivers in the Assisted Living area of Treemont Healthcare Center, and also Comfort Keepers of Central Houston.
Friends are cordially invited to gather with the family and share remembrances of Inez during a memorial service to begin at two o’clock in the afternoon, Wednesday, December 30, 2015 at the Bradshaw-Carter Home, 1734 West Alabama Street in Houston, where Rev. E. Dwain Camp is to officiate.
