Haines, Baker County, Oregon

Marion Sue Ingram, 88, of Haines died May 13, 2006, at Medford.

Her graveside memorial service will be at 11 a.m. Friday at the Haines Cemetery, overlooking her home of 60 years. Deacon James R. Watt of St. Francis de Sales Cathedral will officiate. There will be a reception afterward at the Haines Methodist Church hall.

Marion was born on Aug. 28, 1917, at Waitsburg, Wash., to Thurman S. and Meda Prim Teeter. When her family later moved to Imbler, she attended high school there, graduating in 1935. She attended Eastern Oregon Normal School at La Grande (Eastern Oregon University). She earned a degree in secretarial science from Draper’s School of Commerce at La Grande in 1937.

She married the love of her life, L.M. “Bud” Ingram, on Nov. 14, 1939, at La Grande. They spent most of their lives together operating the family ranch near Haines, which they bought in 1946.

Marion moved to a retirement center at Medford in 2001, and loved being able to be near her daughter.

A loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother, and a wonderful homemaker, Marion was very creative and artistic, discovering a talent for oil painting in her later years. She loved playing bridge and was a longtime member of the Town and Country bridge group.

She enjoyed making rugs, needlework, dancing and traveling. Marion had a natural elegance about her and was always a lady. She sought perfection in everything she did.

Survivors include her daughter, Cherie Kangas, and her husband, Paul, of Medford; son, Jim Ingram, and his wife, Mary Ann, of Haines; grandchildren, Triesta Ashenfelter, and her husband, Aaron, of Hillsboro, James P. Ingram II of Haines, and Carrie Pollard and her husband, Gibb, of La Grande; great-grandsons, Garrett, Pierce, and Lawson Ashenfelter; and her sister, Tennys Bickelhaupt, of Waitsburg, Wash.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Bud, who died in 2000; her parents; and brother, Thurman Teeter, Jr.
