Obituary for Helen Louise Ingling

INGLING, Helen Louise, 88, of Springfield, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Friday, January 20, 2017. She was born on March 11, 1928, in Springfield, Ohio, the daughter of the late Oliver H. and Lula Bell (Stewart) Kirkham. Helen graduated from Plattsburg High School in 1946 and was a lifelong resident of Clark County. She married Harry C. Ingling on June 29, 1946 and together they shared over 59 wonderful years and had two beautiful children, James and Linda. Helen was proud to be the first woman dispatcher in Ohio and she retired from the Ohio State Highway Patrol. After retirement, she kept herself busy by working at Meijer’s as a greeter. She enjoyed over 50 years of attending the Clark County Fair and watching her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren participating in the livestock shows and events. Her family and their activities were her top priority but if the Cincinnati Reds were playing, you always knew where she’d be. Another one of Helen’s life enjoyments was travelling with her lifelong friend, Janet Finchum. Helen was also a dedicated member of the Fletcher Chapel Methodist Church. She is preceded in death by her husband, Harry in 2005; son-in-law, Richard Augustus; brother, Howard Kirkham; sister, Mary Skillings; and beloved dog, Holly. Helen is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, James H. and Becky Ingling; daughter and fiancé, Linda L. Augustus and John Wilburn; grandchildren, Lori (Greg) Noll, Lee Augustus, Jami (Tara) Ingling, Jason (Heather) Ingling, Ami (David) Gilliam and Amanda West; great-grandchildren, Danielle (Josh), Daniel (Isa), Benjamin, Brianna, Brayden, Avery, Quinn, Chloe, Mia, Reese, Alyssa and Davis. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, January 25, 2017 from 2-3p.m. at First Lutheran Church, 30 S Wittenberg Ave, Springfield, OH 45502 with a celebration of her life beginning at 3p.m. Dave Augustus will be officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Clark County 4-H Endowment Fund, P.O. Box 444, Springfield, OH 45501, Breast Cancer Fund of Ohio, PO Box 31238 Independence OH 44131, or the Good Sam Fund (medical care for rescued animals) 2725 Selma Pk. Springfield, OH 45505.
