Estelle Irene Ingraham

Estelle Irene Ingraham, age 92, passed away peacefully on August 12, 2020 after a long battle with Alzheimer's.

She was born July 29, 1928 to Walter and Asma (Breault) Constant in Chicopee, Massachusetts.

Estelle grew up in Chicopee Massachusetts in the neighborhood of Aldenville. She lived there until she met and married her husband, Carl Ingraham on February 28, 1953. They moved to Milan, Ohio where they had 3 children. In 1966 they built their dream home in Huron, Ohio where they raised their family. Estelle's only job was being a house wife and she would tell you it was a full time job. Her flowers were her love. She would take anyone that was interested for a walk around her flower garden.

In retirement, Estelle and Carl traveled the world. They took trips to Mexico, Alaska, Europe, Hawaii, and to Cameroon, Africa. As a little girl she grew up reading about Africa and the big game hunters. She finally achieved her dream by traveling to Africa and seeing the places that she had read about.

In her later years, Estelle was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Her husband Carl took care of her as long as he could then she became a resident at Common of Providence Memory Care Unit in Sandusky, Ohio. Her family would like to thank the staff at Common of Providence Memory Care Unit and Stein Hospice for their loving support and care.

Estelle is survived by her husband, Carl Ingraham and her 3 children, David Ingraham, Steve (Carla) Ingraham and daughter, Cindy (Ted) Branam; 6 grandchildren, Davy Ingraham, Amanda Ingraham (Scott) Bonner, Danielle Ahmed, Romaan Ahmed, Megan Ingraham, and Gavin Ingraham and 1 great-grandchild, Daniel Bonner.

Private family services will be held in the Meadow Green Memorial Park Gazebo, Huron. Pastor Wally Gilbert will officiate. Burial will follow. Groff Funeral Homes & Crematory is assisting the family with arrangements.

Those wishing to contribute to Estelle's memory may do so to Stein Hospice Services, 1200 Sycamore Line, Sandusky, OH 44870.
