Kathy A. Ingerson

March 11, 2022

Kathy IngersonKathy A. "Da" Ingerson, 75, long time resident of Cape Vincent, passed away on Friday, March 11, 2022 at her home in Clayton surrounded by her loving family. Kathy was born on July 17, 1946, in Syracuse, NY. She was the daughter of Kenneth and Arlene Bishop Rienbeck. In 1963, Kathy graduated from Cape Vincent High School. On July 20, 1963 she married Lawrence D. "Larry" Ingerson at Cape Vincent United Methodist Church. The couple was married for 35 years and during that time they owned and operated L & K Gas Station in Cape Vincent. Together, Larry and Kathy enjoyed hours of bowling and dancing with their friends. Kathy retired from NYS Dept. of Transportation in 2009 after 18 years as a Highway Maintenance Worker. Kathy was a member of the Cape Vincent United Methodist Church. She was a past EMT for the Cape Vincent Ambulance Squad.

Kathy's most coveted interest was NASCAR racing, her favorite driver being Dale Earnhardt. She was a car and truck enthusiast and was often referred to as "Fast Katie." A memory she often reflected on was winning the checkered flag in the Powder Puff races at Can-Am Speedway.

Of all of her interests, her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, were her prized possessions. She loved spending time camping, kayaking, biking and being outdoors with her family.

Kathy is survived by her three children and their spouses, Sheri and Gary Hall, Cape Vincent, Laura and Dominick Mollica, Ponce Inlet, FL, Michael and Lisa Ingerson, Clayton, as well as 7 grandchildren and 5 great-granddaughters; her brother and his wife, Thomas and Patricia Rienbeck, Cape Vincent; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

A private burial at Riverside Cemetery, Cape Vincent, followed by a celebration of life will take place in the Spring.

Sheri, Gary, and all of Kathy's family, I was so sorry to read in the TI Sun about Kathy's passing. Our heartfelt condolences to all. Your family lived many years ago next door to my friend Gail (Cmaylo). I remember selling Kathy Girl Scout cookies. We were probably a nuisance to a busy young Mom, but she was always very cordial. It is clear from photos how much she enjoyed her "girl gang." I know she will be much missed.

Sheri, Laurie,Mike and families ,
Sending sincere condolences to you all. She was such a wonderful lady and I have so many childhood memories of her. First one that comes to mind is her washing and shining her red Chevy Nova. Thinking of you all during this very difficult time.

Our sympathies go out to Kathy’s family, Kathy was a great friend and co-worker and I have many fond memories of working side by side with her. She loved operating large plow trucks and was an exceptional driver. I Loved teasing Kathy about Dale Earnhardt but I quickly was put in my place!! I will miss you dear friend.

What a pleasure to have known both Kathy and Larry along with their family. When I read the obituary of Kathy it made me think of so many fun times our families had together . Here is a fun time that I know you will remember. The Powder Puff derbies that were held on the ice on Mud Creek in front of Snug Harbor. Yes, Kathy drove. Thanks for so many good memories
