We Remember

FOX, Ingeborg

1937 — 2019

Inge passed away in Kelowna, BC on January 14, 2019 of Alzheimer’s. She was born in 1937 in Albersloh, Germany. Inge trained in a dairy to become a purchasing assistant. In 1959 she immigrated to Canada with her husband Ludwig, settling in Trenton, Ontario where their children were born.

In 1967, the family moved to Niagara Falls where Ludwig started as a teacher at Lord Elgin. Inge worked as a clerk at a succession of local insurance brokerages (R.C. Young, Morningstar & Bampfield, Olsen & Sottile). Many long-lasting friendships began at those establishments. Inge was a member of Stamford United Church where she and Ludwig met some of their dearest friends. Inge was known for her spotless home, a love of Renaissance art, amazing baking, stylish clothing that she sewed herself and the ability to mangle the English language much to everyone’s amusement.

When Ludwig retired from teaching in 1993, he and Inge moved out to Kelowna to be closer to their children who had moved to BC and Alberta. In Kelowna they found hot dry summers that were a relief to Inge’s arthritis, a steady supply of fruit for her renowned tortes, new friends and a caring community at the Church of God. Starting in 2013, Inge resided at the Complex Care Unit of Mountainview Village where an amazing and caring staff made a home for her. During those years Home Instead also provided great care and companionship to Inge.

Inge is survived by her son Andrew (Verna) and her siblings Gisela, Rudi and Hannelore. She is predeceased by Ludwig and daughter Kathy. She will be missed by her grandchildren, Lukas, Roman, Adam, Rae, Jaden and Fiona, as well as family in BC, Ontario, California and Germany.

A Memorial Service for Inge will be held on Saturday, February 2, 2019 at 11:00 am at the Church of God, 3705 Mission Springs Drive, Kelowna, BC. In lieu of flowers, Inge asked that a donation be made to The Gideons, www.gideons.ca.

    To the family of Inge. Sending my most sincere condolences on the loss of your beloved mother, grandma and sister. I used to book travel for both Ludwig and Inge and I honestly can say they were one of my most beloved clients. I recall them having me over to their home for lunch many many years ago (it was in the 1990’s.) The lunch was superb, the home was immaculate and their company and kindness was something I will never forget. My thoughts are with you as you go through your time of grief. She is not gone she has just gone ahead. Sincerely, Carol (Capri Travel Kelowna)

    Andrew and Verna
    I remember when we were little and visited with Onkel Lulu and Tante Inge in Niagara Falls. Our parents would talk about events from “back home” as we played. Your mom always laughing and smiling. Next morning after breakfast we would spend time at the Horticulture Park. Again your mom always happy, laughing and smiling. Often times, and I never knew why, her and I would just giggle between us. It was always a special time visiting with Onkel Lulu, Tanta Inge, Kathy and Andreas. (Only once did I witness her mad at us. And we deserved the punishment!! Andrews fault of course)
    Debbie, Omi and I would like to express our deepest sympathies and condolences. I know the past few years have not been easy for the entire Fox family. Tante Inge will be in our thoughts and prayers forever!
    Michael and Debbie Pons
