Betty Ingham

Betty Ingham, 81, Appleton, passed away Saturday, May 16, 2020. She was born March 2, 1939, the daughter of Joseph and Alice (Gunderson) Stellflue. Betty grew up in Ettrick, and graduated from Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau High School. Betty was united in marriage to Ronald D. Ingham, August 13, 1966. They lived in LaCrosse, raising their family while she worked at McLoone Metal Graphics Inc., for over 30 years. A number of years after retirement, Betty and Ron settled in Appleton.

Betty loved to cook and clean. She particularly enjoyed baking Christmas cookies and frequently gifted them to family and friends. Betty also loved to shop and Black Friday events were her favorite. She was an avid sports fan and rarely missed a Brewers, Packers or Badgers game. When her kids were growing up, she attended every single school activity and sporting event. Her family was her priority. She adored every moment spent with her grandsons, and when not with them, she was often bragging about them with great pride.

Betty is survived by her husband, Ron, of nearly 54 years; their two children: Sean Ingham and Robyn (Neil) Buss; grandchildren: Jonah, Mason and Evan Buss; three siblings: Susan (Richard) Teska, Mary (Ted) Twesme and Michael (Candace) Stellflue; sisters-in-law: Nancy Stellflue, Rose Stellflue and Jane (Daryl May) Ingham; brothers-in-law: Wynn Ingham and James (Lynda) Ingham. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; father and mother-in-law, John and Alice Ingham; sister, JoAnne Kern; brothers: Thomas and Robert Stellflue; brothers-in-law: Art Kern, Johnny Ingham and Dennis Ingham; sisters-in-law: Ruby Ingham and Linda Ingham.

Betty will be cremated in keeping with her wishes. Due to COVID-19 regulations, a private family service will be held with a Celebration of Life gathering taking place at a later date.
