Marian Ingerson

Marian Olli Ingerson, 66, of Newfield, passed away peacefully at home on June 25, 2021, with her husband by her side.  Born in Ithaca, NY, on November 22, 1954, she was the daughter of the late Alfred and Laura (Knapp) Olli.  Marian was a graduate of Newfield High School and went on to earn her Bachelor’s and Master’s in Education degrees from SUNY Geneseo.  She retired from Spencer-Van Etten Central School District, where she spent her career as a special education teacher.

Marian was a member of Newfield United Methodist Church, where she was active in the women’s group. She also was a member of the Newfield Historical Society as well as the Archives Committee. After retirement, she volunteered at Tompkins Learning Partners where she tutored in adult literacy. In her free time, she enjoyed weaving and spending time outdoors—especially hiking and camping in her younger days.  She also had a passion for reading and a love for her cats.  Marian was always concerned with the well-being of others and will be remembered as an extremely thoughtful and patient person.

Marian is survived by her loving husband of nearly 40 years, Kevin Ingerson, whom she married on August 22, 1981, in Newfield; sisters, Deborah (Jeffrey) Liker and Susan Rafalak; sister-in-law, Mary Smith; Kevin’s siblings, Steven (Sabine) Ingerson and Karen (Joseph) Campbell; and many nieces and nephews.  In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her brother, Michael Smith; brother-in-law, John Rafalak; and father-in law and mother-in-law, Roy Ingerson and Jacqueline Abriel.

A funeral service will be officiated by Pastor Geri Judd at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, June 29, 2021, at the Newfield United Methodist Church, 227 Main Street, Newfield.  Anyone who has not received the COVID-19 vaccine will be asked to wear a mask.  Interment will immediately follow at Greensprings Natural Cemetery Preserve, 293 Irish Hill Road, Newfield.  Guests are welcome to wear casual attire.

In lieu of flowers please consider a contribution to Tompkins Learning Partners, Newfield Historical Society, or Tompkins County SPCA.
