Ingrid David-Horgan, 43, died on October 4, 2013, surrounded by family and friends, after a three-year struggle with cancer.
Ingrid was born on July 19, 1970 in Beirut, Lebanon. She and her family moved to California in 1976. Ingrid attended Diablo Valley Community College. She was an arborist, an avid naturalist and entomologist, and a talented beadwork artist. For the last 12 years she worked in the Quarantine Division of the Monterey County Agriculture Department. She was a passionate defender of trees, the natural environment, and all defenseless creatures, and saved many live oak trees through her knowledgeable advocacy. She loved good company, good food, movie comedies, and music, especially bluegrass.
She is survived by her husband, Rob Horgan, whom she married on October 11, 2008, and with whom she lived (with four cats) in Prunedale. She is also survived by her mother, Aida Abcarius-Schulte and stepfather, Paul Schulte; her father, Marc-Henri David and stepmother, Catherine David; her sister and brother-in-law, Frederique David and Jason Johnston; and by her sister, Fabienne Jach. She leaves many, many friends whose lives she brightened with her happiness, wisdom and grace. They will always hold her in their hearts and will remember her signature line, "Love and Laughter Always, Ingrid."
Her memorial service will be on Sunday, November 3, 2013, at the Moss Landing Marine Lab, 8272 Moss Landing Road, from 1:00 to 4:30 PM.
