LEE INGERMAN Died at the age of 98 early Friday morning April 26. She was born in 1914 in Brooklyn, New York. Her children Joseph and Sandra, her grandchildren Howard, Melissa, and Joshua, and her brother Joe survive her. Lee Ingerman died peacefully in her apartment at the Kingston Residence of Santa Fe. Sandra and her husband Woods Shoemaker had the good fortune to spend many days each week of quality time with her during her four years that she lived in Santa Fe at the Kingston Residence. This was such a precious gift. She was such an inspiration to everyone who knew her. Lee loved life! She believed that life was so precious and she appreciated every breath. We should all know such passion for life! In her life she was very involved in the schools her children attended and organizations in her community. In her retirement Lee tutored children. Lee always stressed the importance of education. She loved to dance, to listen to music, and to travel. Lee was a shining light to everyone who came into her presence. She always had a smile and kind words to share with everyone she saw. The entire Ingerman family would like to thank the staff at the Kingston for their wonderful loving care. Amber Care helped to make her more comfortable in her final days. And over the years her private aids Darcy, Becky, and Nicole always surrounded her in love. When Lee died at 98 her mind was completely sharp. Her mind until the end was amazing! If you met Lee there were certain phrases she would have said to you: "Dance while you can. Do everything while you can. Because one day it will be too late." "May everything you want in life come easily for you." "Do God's work". "God bless you." Her family gives thanks and celebrates the life of Lee Ingerman! Rivera Family Funerals and Cremations 417 East Rodeo Rd.
