Carol E. Ingersoll

June 17, 1936 ~ December 20, 2022 (age 86) 86 Years Old


Carol E. Ingersoll, age 86, of North Tonawanda, passed away peacefully surrounded by her husband, son and granddaughter on December 20, 2022. 

Survived by her loving husband of 64 years, Robert E. Ingersoll; Her children, Robert H. (Jane) of Texas, Jeffrey A. (late Teri) of North Tonawanda, and Michael E. (Mary) Ingersoll of Arkansas. 

Also survived by her sister Marian (Jim) Redmond, brother Harold E. (Gayle) Miller Jr., sister Myra Jane (late Ray) Barnett. Loving grandmother to  Jessica (Pat) Carson, Todd Ingersoll, Marie Ingersoll, Jennifer Ingersoll, her 4 great granddaughters, Dalanie, Addison, Kyndell and Natalia, as well as 4 nieces and 5 nephews. Carol and the family always had a dog or two, mostly boxers and she left behind Ginger to take care of dad.

Born, raised and married in Johnsonburg, PA, Carol moved to Niagara Falls right after getting married to Bob. A job at Hooker Chemical and Bob at Carborundum brought them to Western NY. Carol was also very proud of the job she was offered at the FBI, but did not take as she chose to get married and raise a family. 

Carol spent her family days raising 3 boys as she took care of the house on Mazda Terrace while Bob worked. As her family grew and spread out, Carol loved to go to “The Land” they owned in the southern tier, especially on the Fourth of July when the whole family would get together to celebrate around the fire pit and ride the mini-bikes & 4 wheelers. 

Carol loved spending her home time in the yard, riding her bike and walking her dog. She was a fixture on Mazda Terrace for the 59 years she lived there. She always had a great relationship with her neighbors over the years as she transitioned from watching over the neighborhood elders, then babysitting the young arrivals, to becoming the elder herself that was watched over from across the street (Thank You to those neighbors for the love). In her middle years Carol was quite the league bowler carrying a 159 avg. at Parkside and Kenmore Lanes. 

Carol’s family misses her dearly. 

Please pray and care for those that are affected by Alzheimers/Dementia.

A memorial service at Redeemer Lutheran Church in North Tonawanda will be announced at a later date.
