Vangie was born May 24, 1920 in Scotia to Henry and Lena (Vogt) Hermsmeyer. She attended Scotia schools and graduated from Scotia High School in 1938.
She worked at various businesses in the Scotia area and then at the Cornhusker Army Ammunition Plant in Grand Island.
Vangie was united in marriage to Derrell Ingram on June 30, 1947 in Phillipsburg, KS.
They lived on the Hiram Wittwer farm until 1955 when they moved to a farm by the Loup River in the Cotesfield area.
After Derrell’s death in 1990, she continued to live on the farm until 2004 when she moved to Matelyn Retirement Community and the Brookefield Park in 2018.
Vangie said Matelyn Retirement Community and Brookefield Park were her “homes” after she moved from the farm. Thank you for making Vangie’s last 14 years so special.
