Kathy Inman

Kathy Anne Ellis-Inman, of Zionsville, passed away on Jan. 8, 2014. 

Born in Indianapolis on Feb. 15, 1957, Kathy was the daughter of Anna Frances (Little) and Forrest D. Ellis.

She is survived by her husband, Mark Inman; children, Abby Inman and Lily Inman; father; step-mother, Sue Riddell-Ellis; grandmother, Jane Inman; siblings, Joyce Kaye Hubbard (Tony) of Indianapolis, Susan Ellis-Miles (Dan) of Bonita Springs, Fla., and Forrest James Ellis (Amy) of McLean, Va; and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews, and extended-family members.

Kathy lived the first four months of her life in Indianapolis, the next year in San Francisco, and the following two years in Homestead, Fla. She moved with her parents to North Vernon in 1960, where she spent the next nine years. She attended kindergarten and grade school in North Vernon until returning with her family to Indianapolis again in 1969. She graduated from Pike High School in 1975; Indiana University, Bloomington, in 1979; and Indiana University School of Law, Indianapolis, in 1982.

Subsequently she practiced law and worked for private law firms in Indianapolis, taught at North Central High School in Indianapolis for 18 years, and was working for the Boone County Prosecutor’s Office in the Child Support Division in Lebanon at the time of her death. This earned her “The Best Mom, Wife & Teacher in the World Award,” symbolized by a one-of-a-kind trophy bestowed upon her by her husband and daughters.

In her spare time she created Think to That LLC through which she distributed card games of her own creation. She created the game, Think to That, to bring people together, which is one of the traits people loved most about Kathy. She was proud of her small company.

She was also proud of the family and friends with whom she surrounded herself. Kathy encouraged her husband and her daughters to go after their dreams, no matter what. Talking about her family brought her so much joy, and they know she loved them so much because she told them every single day. She loved her friends dearly, whether they were from her work, Trees II, Euchre Club, the ’05 moms, the I Aeta Pi sorority, or the countless individuals that were touched by her quirky personality.
