Myron Ingram

Myron Arthur Ingram was born March 12, 1935, to Herman R. and Mildred E. (Spencer) Ingram. He graduated from Mount Ayr High School. Myron served his country in the US Army.

Myron married Shirley J. Heggs on June 30, 1957, at the Kellerton Christian Church in Kellerton, Iowa. Myron and Shirley lived in Des Moines, and then moved to Altoona, into their 1st home that Myron had built. While in Altoona, he also built another house and sold it. They had 3 children Teresa, Tamera and Michael.

He worked from 1957-1967 at John Deere Company. In 1968 Myron purchased the Heggs family farm west of Kellerton, Iowa and farmed until he retired. Myron and Shirley were faithful and devoted members of the Trinity Christian Church.

Myron loved listening to music as well as singing and dancing. He played several instruments including the guitar and harmonica. He enjoyed helping others by using his gifts from God.  Myron loved fishing, deer/pheasant hunting, snipe hunting, gardening, planting crops and watching them grow in the field. He liked playing cribbage.  Myron liked welding and inventing useful tools to help himself and others. He could fix anything. Myron enjoyed beekeeping and how bees improve life for everyone. He liked to share knowledge and experiences with others.

 Myron enjoyed watching his 8 grandsons grow up and teaching them about life experiences. Myron would pull the boys in the wagon during the 4th of July Kellerton Parades and challenge them to Ping Pong games. Myron took every opportunity to teach the boys how to build a good work ethic by encouraging them to help with chores and projects.

Myron passed away on July 2, 2022, from Alzheimer’s, after a good fight. He is preceded in death by his parents Herman and Mildred Ingram and siblings Vesta Ingram Still, Melvin Ingram, Evelyn Ingram Marrs, and Corwin Ingram.

Myron is survived by his wife, Shirley; children Teresa (fiancé John Saulnier) Sickels, Tamera (Javad) Rustin, and Michael (Brenda) Ingram;  grandchildren Adam and Alex Sickels, Mark, Nick, Brock, and Luke Rustin, and Christopher and Matthew Ingram; great grandchildren Lily D.

Loved to see Myron & Shirley at the Senior Center in Mount Ayr and they traveled on many bus trips with us. Myron loved playing games with the SCAC bunch and both were really missed when they let our area. Our condolences to Shirley and the family.
