M. Susie Ingram
Dec. 12, 1932May 19, 2009
A memorial service for M. Susie Ingram, 77, of Turlock, will be held at Turlock Memorial Park & Funeral Home at 1 p.m. Saturday. All of her friends are invited to join the celebration of her life and to rejoice in remembering her as she lived and loved.
M. Susie Ingram was born in Poteau, Okla. to Rev. Emerson and Annie Burns.  She moved with her family to Shawnee, Okla., where she attended local schools and graduated from Shawnee High School in 1940. Soon after her graduation, W.W.II broke out and she was hired to work as a welder on the crippled warships. She met and married Glen Ingram in 1943. They moved to Richmond, Calif. for the duration of Glen’s enlistment with the Merchant Marines and then moved to Turlock in 1945.
Susie was completely devoted to her family and she loved to coordinate holiday get-togethers, especially camping trips to Yosemite Park over the 4th of July to watch the fire falls. She was a great cook and enjoyed knitting, sewing, crocheting and she even learned how to upholster. She grew and canned her own vegetables and made a mean “chow-chow.”
In the mid ‘50s she was employed by Safeway Market until 1960, when The Ingram Family moved to Tucson, Ariz. and Glen opened his own refrigeration business. Susie went to work for A.J. Bayless Market where she was employed for the next 26 years.
After 34 years in Tucson, they retired to their dream home in Lakeside, Ariz. near the White Mountain Range. Susie became quite involved with community services by serving as a hospital volunteer, hospice volunteer and as a crusader for the American Cancer Society.
When Glen passed away on Jan. 3, 2000, Susie moved to Lake Havasu City, Ariz. for the next five years before coming back to Turlock.
We are so blessed to have had her here with us these past years. She leaves her family with many, many unforgettable memories. We miss her and still find ourselves smiling at the thought of her. “When you met her, you knew her and when you knew her, you loved her.” That was our Susie.
Susie is survived by her daughters, Sheila (Roger) Gregg and Donna (Barry) Kimzey, of Turlock; her son, David Ingram of Lake Havasu City, Ariz.; her sister, Immogene Thompson of Anchorage, Alaska; 10 grandchildren; 15 great grandchildren; and many, many nieces and nephews whom she loved so much.  Her passing is preceded by her parents; six siblings; the love of her life, her husband Glen.
It gives us all peace to know she is at peace in the loving arms of our Lord Jesus.
