In the early 1930s, a new funeral home was established in Albion, Illinois, by Fred and Fay Ingram. It was appropriately named the Ingram Funeral Home. Thirty years later, Mr. and Mrs. Ingram acquired funeral homes from Stanley and Geneva King in the neighboring towns of West Salem and Allendale. The Ingrams’ son and daughter-in-law, Curtis and Dolores Ingram, managed the newly purchased homes, continuing the tradition of personal service. Many funeral homes of that era also operated ambulance services, as did Ingram Funeral Home. The ambulance service continued until the early 1980s.
Following the death of Fred Ingram in 1980, Curtis assumed full responsibility of all three funeral homes, managing them until his and Dolores’ retirement in 1999. Ownership of Ingram Funeral Home was transferred at that time to Keystone America, Inc.
