One of Inez's favorite pastimes was playing the slot machines at the Chumash Casino. Her favorite game was the Wolf Run and she would often remark playing that was “better than medicine.”
Inez will be remembered for her beautiful smile, infectious laugh and kind spirit. Even during her intense illness she never lost her will to live. The fight inside her was remarkably strong. The Moreno Family has a saying “Siempre Adelante” “always forward.”
Inez was preceded in death by her husband, Isaac Moreno Sr and daughter, Sarita Moreno.
