Frances (Peterson Hines) Ingli, age 92 of Spring Valley, Wis., died Saturday, Aug. 18, at the Spring Valley Health and Rehabilitation Center.
Frances was born Dec. 15, 1919, the daughter of Adolph and Alma (Wahl) Peterson in El Paso Township, Pierce County, Wis. She was baptized and confirmed at South Rush River (Our Savior's) Lutheran Church and has been a long time member of St. John's Lutheran Church in Spring Valley.
On Nov. 16, 1943, Frances married Henry Hines. They farmed together and were blessed with three sons. In 1954, Henry died tragically in an automobile accident, and at age 35, Frances was left to raise her three young sons. With the help of family and friends, she continued living and working the farm. On July 8, 1957, Frances married Richard Ingli at the Little Brown Church in Nashua, Iowa. They sold the Hines farm and moved to Richard's farm where they lived and worked together. They were blessed with two children. Frances blended them all together as a family of one.
Her life was always about others. Gathering with family and friends was a priority in her life. She loved to garden and cook, crochet, and make afghans. She was active in church, and her strong faith was an inspiration to all her family.
Preceding her in death were her parents; her husbands, Henry and Richard; and 11 brothers and sisters.
She is survived by her four sons and one daughter, Max Hines of Bloomington, Minn., Joe (Karen) Hines of Ellsworth, Rex (Carol) Hines of Ellsworth, Craig (Beth) Ingli of Elmwood, and Lorna Ingli of Cottage Grove, Minn.; 11 grandchildren, Maria (Drummond) Brigham, Sophia Lowe-Hines, Robert (Linda) Bassat II, Rick Bassat, Sara (Jeff) Awe, Jacob (Katie) Hines, Jared Hines, Kay (Tom) Guitzkow, Celia (Brady) Burgraff, Rick Ingli, and Erin Ingli; 10 great-grandchildren, Jillian and Jackson Brigham, Robert Bassat III, Stanley Bassat, Sophia Bassat, Bella Bassat, George Bassat, Andrew Bassat, Delaney Awe, and Alexie Awe; future great-grandchildren, baby boy Awe and baby girl Burgraff; one sister, Fern Hanson of Manawa; one brother, Arnold Peterson of Florida; many nieces, nephews, brothers- and sisters-in-law; other relatives and friends.
