Ina Josephine was born to Dave and Lizzie (Wedel) Smith on July 11, 1919 northwest of Ringwood, and went home to be with her Lord on Wednesday, January 21, 2009, at her home in Enid.
Ina attended rural country schools graduating from Ringwood High School in 1939, and was united in marriage to Harry Dee Koehn at Fairview, on November 16, 1940. They shared the joys and sorrows of life together for over 66 years. They made their home in the Ringwood area. Ina was a homemaker and helped Harry with farm work until they moved into the town of Ringwood, where she cooked at the Ringwood School. She then went to work at the Helena Training School for Boys in Helena as a custodian, and continued working there for ten years. Ina was a long time member of Central Assembly of God Church in Enid. Our Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother will be greatly missed. She was a loving, kind and patient person, who was loved by all who knew her.
She is survived by her two daughters, Myrna Thorp, of Enid, and Sheryl Coffey and husband Terry of Fairview; two sons, Ivan Koehn and Kenneth Koehn, both of Enid; eight grandchildren; twelve great-grandchildren; and one great-great-granddaughter; two sisters, Mrs. Wanda Nelson of Leonardville, KS, and Mrs. Ruby Koehn of Moundridge, KS; three sister-in-laws, Mrs. Maxine Smith, Mrs. Nathalie Koehn, and Nelda Koehn; and many nieces and nephews.
