Inez, Margeson Apartments

Inez has been well known in Margeson for her beautiful piano playing since 2007. “I go to church, I praise the Lord. That’s my motto,” said Inez as her fingers tapped out a gospel song in the lobby. But Inez is known for more than just her musical skills, she also has a big heart for helping others and will gladly give rides to neighbors who don’t have cars. “Here, I help people that I can.” This servant’s heart came from her mother and from being a nurse for more than 30 years. She’s from Virginia but has raised all four of her children here in Portsmouth and loves living in Margeson. “I got one apartment but it’s jam packed with stuff, praise the Lord!”
