Ingersoll, Lillian (25 July 1867 - 21 Sept. 1941)

Funeral services for Mrs. Clark Ingersoll, who died Sunday were held this afternoon. The body lay in state at the Zink Funeral Home until this morning when it was taken to the Presbyterian church where the services were conducted at two o’clock. The Rev. George Griffiths, pastor of the church, officiated at the rites during which the hymns "God Will Take Care of You" and "In the Garden" were sung by Mrs. A. J. Folstad and Miss Jessie Merrill with piano accompaniment by Mrs. W. R. Berger. Internment was made in the Abbotsford cemetery.

The pallbearers were five sons, Bert, Donald, Kenneth, Robin, Carroll, and one grandson, Clark Ingersoll.

The many beautiful floral offerings were carried by two grand daughters, the Misses Arlene and Jeanette Ingersoll, and the Misses Wilma Colby, Maureen Lieders, Betty and Shirley Kleinstick.

Mrs. Ingersoll, the former Miss Lillian Clark, was born July 25, 1867 at Aurorahville, and was married at Weyauwega to Clark Ingersoll on July 29, 1885.
