Ingrid Ursula Wilford
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ingrid Wilford on May 29th, 2016. Ingrid (Nass) was born in Elbing, Germany in 1942. She, with her mother and sister, Ethel, fled the war and came to Canada as a small child. (Needless to say, this was much harder than it sounds!) She was employed at the Alberta Hospital (Ponoka Centennial Center) for many years until multiple sclerosis forced her early retirement. She moved into Northcott Care Center in 2003 where she resided until the time of her passing. Ingrid was a strong, caring, selfless woman, who always made the best of what she had, and who always put her family first. Ingrid is lovingly remembered and missed by her children: Pam Voysey, Rick (Lora) and Ivan (Donna); her grandchildren: Kim (Ron) Jones, Michael Voysey, Rob (Lyndi), Derek (Melinda), Maverick, Dylan and Dallas; her siblings: Ethel Baumgarten, Albert (Barb) Brandl, Betty (Dave) Phalempin, and Wilbur Brandl, as well as many nieces, nephews and great grandchildren. Ingrid was predeceased by mother, Martha Brandl; brother-in –law, Lloyd Baumgarten; niece, Theresa Grandy (Baumgarten) and close friend, Skip Cook. We would like to express our deepest thanks and appreciation to all the staff at Northcott Care Center, for the wonderful care and kindness that was shown to Ingrid over the last 13 years. Thanks to Dr. Chan, as well. We would also like to extend our sincerest gratitude to Marlon, of the Ponoka Funeral Home, for all his help and support and for the very beautiful graveside service held at the Forest Home Cemetery, in Ponoka, on June 7th. Also, a big thank you to Bob and Deb Hepp and staff for the awesome lunch served at Ingrid’s family memorial at the Royal Canadian Legion.
