KNUTSON, Ingrid “Ingie” Marie

March 27, 1940 – Hardisty, AB
July 9, 2014 – Calgary, AB

Sadly, we say goodbye to a wonderful wife, mom, grandma, sister and friend. Ingie passed away with her family by her side on Wednesday, July 9, 2014 at the age of 74.

Ingrid was born in Hardisty, Alberta on March 27, 1940 and lived in Hughenden, Alberta until 1956. Ingie and Gerry were married in Edmonton on November 8, 1956 and later settled in Calgary where life-long friends were made including the infamous “Lakeview Lovelies”. Ingie loved spending time with family and friends at Mara Lake, BC. She was a gracious and generous host with an ability to prepare delicious meals for large gatherings of family and friends. Ingie became a second mom to many friends of her children and she had a natural talent for making everyone feel welcome. Ingie and Gerry discovered another favourite place, Napili Kai Beach Resort in Maui, in 1969 and returned every winter for 46 years. They made many friends that they looked forward to seeing each year. Ingie was an amazing putter and her name is on the resort par buster’s wall of fame. This competitive nature was evident when she earned the title of Calgary Women’s 10 Pin Bowling Champion in 1968. Ingrid will be forever remembered for her kindness and generosity, her fun-loving and feisty personality, and her love for her family. The family wishes to thank the staff at ICU and Unit 36 at the Foothills Medical Centre and the staff at the Carewest Sarcee Hospice.

Ingie is survived by her loving husband of 57 years, Gerald (Gerry); daughter Carolyn (Rod) MacDonald and sons Jason and Mark, and Rod’s son Michael; daughter Laurie Knutson and sons Stephen and Sean; son Kevin (Patsy) Knutson and children Travis, Laine and Carly; and daughter Belinda Knutson (Alan Fisher and his children Alicia and Jamie). Ingie is also survived by her sister Eleanor Paulgaard, as well as extended family and friends. She was predeceased by her parents Johanna and John Oserud and step-father Robert Johnson.

A Celebration of Ingie’s Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY (Park Memorial, 5008 Elbow Drive S.W. Calgary, AB) on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 at 3:30 p.m. If friends so desire a donation may be directly made to Carewest Sarcee, 3504 Sarcee Rd SW, Calgary AB T3E 2L3, 403-686-8100. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

    Oh my Goodness Gerry! I just got home to hear this sad news. I was just looking at photos of all of us having a fabulous time in San Francisco at your 40th Wedding Anniversary… was it really 17 years ago?? Seems like yesterday, and Ingie was always so fun at the McDaniel Xmas parties too… So sorry for your loss. Hugs and prayers to you and your family. Louise Hughes & Family

    I have many fond memories of the times I spent with the Knutson family . One time I remember was when Doug and I were having dinner at Laurie’s home with Gerry and Ingie – someone mentioned Doug’s birthday was coming up – next thing we know a ice cream birthday cake was as the scene – somehow Ingie managed to come up with one for desert. We will never forget all the special things she did for friends and family and how she made people feel. Rest in Peace Ingie.

    Love Carol and Doug

    I was deeply saddened to learn of Inge’s passing. Although I have not been around the family for many years, I have many great memories of the times that I did spend with you all. Inge (Mrs K) certainly did welcome and accept all of the friends of her children, regardless of the circumstance. Always ready with a smile and a warm greeting and genuine interest in our lives. The times spent in your home were always filled with laughter and Mrs K was usually at the heart of it. All of my memories of her are joyful ones and are held in a warm place in my heart. My deepest condolences to all of the family during this sad time.
