Maureen Patricia Ingram

Maureen Patricia Ingram, 85, went peacefully to our Lord surrounded by family on Sunday night, May 29, 2022 in Gaylord, Michigan.

She was born in 1936 in Perth, Scotland, the daughter of the late Andrew and Mary Josephine Porter. She lived in Scotland until she moved to High Wycombe, England in 1944. She was a graduate of Saint Bernards Catholic School in High Wycombe, England.

Maureen met her late husband, Denzil Ingram, while he was serving in the United States Air Force in High Wycombe, England. In 1957, Maureen moved to the United States to live with her brother and parents where she and Denzil were reunited and married in Shelby, Ohio in 1959. It was in Shelby where they made their home for 62 years before moving to Gaylord, Michigan in 2021 to be closer to family.  Maureen retired from the Mansfield News Journal in 1995 after serving 25 years in a variety of positions.

Maureen enjoyed gardening, traveling, antiquing, and spending time with family and friends. We will miss her for her gentle nature, wisdom, guidance, quick wit and dedication and love for her family.

In addition to her parents, Maureen was preceded in death by her husband: Denzil Bertis Ingram on October 8, 2021; brother: Andrew Porter; and brothers-in-law: James Ray Ingram and Robert Montgomery.
