June 26, 1920 – May 17, 2020
Ingrid Furnell (previously Bergen), passed away peacefully on May 17, 2020, approaching her 100th birthday.
Ingrid and husband George moved to Ladysmith in 1948 where they raised 4 children and worked together on their poultry farm. As a team, they were confident they provided half the town’s weekly egg supply for 25 years!
After George’s passing, Ingrid was blessed to become reacquainted with Jack Furnell, an old friend who she married and spent 30 beautiful years with, full of travel, laughter and time with family.
Ingrid loved people, making new friends wherever she went. Live music at the Friday afternoon happy hour at Origin in Nanaimo where she spent her last few years, became the highlight of her week. Being asked to dance really made her day!
She led a full and active life and we will miss our mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend. Love, your family.
