Myrna Inama

June 9, 1936 — Sept. 23, 2013

Myrna J. Inama, lately of Keystone Heights, Fla., former 40-year resident of El Dorado County, suffered a stroke on Sept. 17 and died Sept. 23, 2013. She wished to be cremated and her ashes scattered at our cousin’s property on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington.

Mother was a very talented seamstress, sewing the majority of our clothing when we were young and later sewing costumes for melodramas at the Coloma Theater and various plays for Theater El Dorado. Mother had an occasionally bawdy sense of humor, was a wonderful baker who hated to cook, and was never, ever, far from a book. She worked at the Coloma Post Office as a clerk and later Postmaster and also at the Sierra Nevada House waiting tables.

Mother married and started her family young. She earned her G.E.D. in 1967, took basic college courses at American River College in Placerville, and transferred to CSUS, where she earned her B.S.R.N. in 1974. As a nurse she worked at Marshall Hospital in Placerville, the then tiny Folsom Hospital, then retired from Kaiser Permanente in Sacramento.

Myrna is survived by her children, Geri Inama and family of Alaska, Teresa Tiemeyer and family of Florida, Sheree Turner and family of California and Bill Inama and family of Washington; and 10 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren who have many Grammy Myrna stories to remember. Also remaining behind are her sisters, Irene Richards and family of Alaska and Rose Radonski and family of Washington; her sister-in-law, Terry Stoaks and family of Washington; her brothers, Al Rooks and family of Oregon and Michael Rooks and family of Washington; her former husband and friends, Gene and Viola Inama of Placerville; and all her good friends from throughout her well-lived and well-loved life.

Mother believed in God, believed in miracles and is having a grand reunion with all the family and friends who preceded her to the other side.
