Ingrid entered into rest at the age of 69 years on February 21, 2014. She was born on May 14, 1944 in Czechoslovakia.
In 1957, Ingrid joined her mother in Ogema, Saskatchewan where she met Merlin, the love of her life. Ingrid and Merlin were married in 1960, and they had four daughters; Cindy, Barbara, Terry and Suzanne. They spent many years running the family farm with Merlin`s twin brother, Mervin and her best friend, Sharon. In 1977, they moved to Wetaskiwin where Janice became an instant daughter. Ingrid nursed for over two decades until the battle with her health forced her into retirement. In 1997, Merlin and Ingrid moved to the acreage near Wetaskiwin where she enjoyed her flowers, her garden and all of her family.
Ingrid is survived by her loving husband of 53 years, Merlin; daughters, Cindy (Stan) Howse, Barbara (Rob) Fontaine, Terry Mildenberger, Suzanne (Craig) Beaubien, Janice Drader; 15 grandchildren; 18 great grandchildren.
She was predeceased by her parents, Anni & Neil.
All of this from one very strong, outspoken German girl.
A memorial service was held on February 28, 2014 at Baker Funeral Chapel.
