Mrs. Ingersoll was born on May 6, 1944 in Shreveport, Louisiana. She was a lifelong member of St. Mark’s Cathedral and spent years of her childhood in the St. Marks choir with her siblings and many friends. She graduated from Byrd High School in 1962 and attended classes at Centenary College.
Through Marjorie’s fifty-six years of battling Multiple Sclerosis, she remained headstrong and determined to live a full life. Her willingness to fight through her limitations was admired by her many friends and family. Her life was whole heartedly focused on her husband, George and her family, especially her two daughters, Emily and Jennifer.
She devoted her life to being the best mother she could possibly be. Her love for them was truly unconditional and remained so through her life. That love and devotion continued on to her grandchildren August, Bradley, Annie and Callen.
