    So sad to hear this. Ingrid and Bill were people who welcomed me into their barn family many years ago at Windsong Farm. My condolences to Peter , Andrea and family. I have some wonderful memories I will treasure of Ingrid. She loved her animals and even went to the spca and adopted a skinny grey persian cat I told her was terrified and hiding at the shelter. I went in the house for tea and Ingrid smiled and said " look who is here now, and will probably need you to brush him " Sammy was his name. Rest in peace dear lady.
    Love, Marion Couch

    Sad news indeed but she is without pain now. Fond memories of talking about horses, their lineage, etc. you will be remembered in this world. Give Bill a big hug. He will have the barn all cleaned up because he knows you are coming.

    Condolences to the family. Dear Ingrid you will be missed. Not only were you one of my grandmother's dearest friends, you were such a good friend to our entire family. We loved your feisty spirit and your kindness to animals. Thank you.

    I was so sorry to hear that Ingrid has passed away and would like to extend my deepest sympathy to her family. I met Ingrid through Kelowna Newcomers. For many years Ingrid was in charge of organizing Pub Nite for Newcomers and I don't know what we would have done without her. She always made everyone so welcome. Ingrid attended my husband's funeral which was not easy for her to do at that time and it was greatly appreciated. Again, my deepest sympathy.

    So sorry to hear of Ingrid's passing. It was always a pleasure to visit with her. She was such a kind and caring person full of good knowledge about life. My Mum (Mary Kirkham) had lots of happy times with Ingrid, shopping at Costco and Buckerfields and then having lunch together once a week. Say a Big hello to my Mum and Bill for me. You will be greatly missed. The Andrews family.
