Jane Eleanor (Colglazier) Ingram

September 17, 1928 — December 14, 2022


Jane Eleanor (Colglazier) Ingram, 94, passed peacefully on December

14, 2022, in Cincinnati. She was born at home September 17, 1928, in

Salem, IN just prior to the onset of the Great Depression. She is preceded

in death by her parents, Gayle E. and Agnes V. (Nuckles) Colglazier, her

husband, John S. Ingram, Jr., and brother Richard “Dick” Colglazier.

Devoted mother of Linda (Dennis “Rocky”) Spalazzi, J. Rick (Bridget)

Ingram and Todd (Holly) Ingram. Cherished grandmother to five

grandchildren; Ryan (Emily), Gina (Tim), Rachel, Andrew, and Shayne

and seven great-grandchildren.

A 1946 graduate of Salem High School, Jane was active in a broad range

of student activities. In addition to being an award-winning drum major

she was a leader and participant in Drama, Booster Club, Student

Council, and was Senior Class Secretary, Vice-President of the Girls

Athletic Association and Advertising Manager of the student newspaper,

among others.

Jane lived in several Indiana cities before moving in the mid-1950s to

College Hill in Cincinnati where she lived for over 60 years. She was

actively involved in all the school and community activities for her

children. She was also a long-time member and volunteer at College Hill

Presbyterian Church. She was relied on and admired by her co-workers

during her 17 years serving as a secretary in the Cincinnati Public

School System at Winton Place and Chase Elementary schools.

Jane was an avid reader, a master of Sudoku and crossword puzzles, an

Indiana (and Purdue) basketball fan, and enjoyed sharing countless

adventures and stories with her family during many family reunions

and celebrations. She loved road trips to see family and friends, with

many memories of visiting Salem, playing family Tripoli rounds, lunch

outings to Huber’s Orchard and vacationing at the beach with the family,

especially at Hilton Head Island. Along the way there always seemed to

be a Cracker Barrel stop for lunch and shopping.

Jane loved all her family and friends, near and far, and when travel

wasn’t possible, she was sure to keep in touch with her iPad that was

always within reach to email, Facetime and text everyone.

Her bright smile, laugh, generosity and always positive outlook will be

remembered and missed by all who knew her, and they will be

especially missed by her grandkids and great grandkids. To them, she

was “Granny.” They were the loves of her life. She was an irreplaceable

presence and positive influence in their lives, always there for school

and sports events, and special lunches out on the last day of school. She

was the best maker of outstanding after school snacks like micro-magic

fries and drinks with straws, binge-watching Days of our Lives,

Jeopardy, and Wheel of Fortune, and talking of how well they would do

if participating on these game shows some day.

She loved taking the grandkids to shows and movies and introduced all

of them to her beloved Shirley Temple movies. Jane patiently endured

each one of them practicing driving skills in her car. The birthday and

holiday gifts she always gave brought so much joy and fun to all the

grandkids and great grandkids, and there are endless photos

documenting each occasion to remember our beloved “Granny.”
