Ina Mae Griffing, Franklin, Nebraska, was born July 12, 1918, in Hebron, NE to Pearl Brown Webber and Frank Webber. She died Friday, November 23, 2018, at Franklin Care and Rehabilitation Center, Franklin, Nebraska, at the age of 100 years, 4 months, and 11 days.
In 1923, at the five Ina, her parents and her two older brothers, Glenn and Alvin “Ace” Webber moved to a farm in Smith County, KS.

They had a daughter Deena on September 28, 1942.
When Frank and Pearl retired from farming, Bud and Ina moved back to the original home place, where they lived and farmed for many years.
