She is also survived by one great-granddaughter, Rylee Rafferty and seven step great-grandchildren; a brother, Benjamin Nels of Liverpool, N.Y., and a sister, Anna Wojewodzic of Port Henry, N.Y., and many special nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her first husband, Eugene Ingleston Sr.; son, Stanley (Bubby) Ingleston; grandson, Benjamin (Benji) Ingleston; and five brothers, Frank, Walter, Joseph, John and Stanley Nels; and also her beloved dog, "Bear."
