Our commitment to Allendale
Each little town in Illinois has its ups and downs throughout history, and the history of Allendale is punctuated by an event that took place on January 7, 1989. On that date, an F4 tornado destroyed a large portion of the town, injuring between 50 to 60 residents. Among the many buildings leveled that day was Ingram Funeral Home.
Despite the tragedy, our funeral home and staff persevered to ensure we continued our commitment to serve the community of Allendale. Following extensive clean-up, a new funeral home was erected and continues to be a safe haven. We're honored our Allendale funeral home provides a comforting place where those who suffer the loss of a loved one can grieve and begin the journey to healing.
Family tradition of care
Stanley King was one of the first funeral directors in Allendale, and he later purchased the West Salem Funeral Home from the Busefink family. They were in the furniture business in West Salem, which was a common occurrence in those days.
Gene Rodgers began working for Stanley and his wife, Geneva King, before he began high school. He retired from the Allendale funeral home after raising his family with his wife, Dorothy. Years later, Mary Alyce Rodgers-Faith, Gene's daughter, would continue the family tradition of funeral service by working in a part-time capacity at Ingram Funeral Home, following her retirement from the First National Bank of Allendale.
Fred and Fay Ingram and their son, Curtis, and his wife, Dolores, purchased the Allendale and West Salem funeral homes in the early 60s from the King family. The 2 couples devoted themselves to those they served. Almost 40 years later, in 1999, Curtis and Dolores retired, and in fall 2007, Ingram Funeral Home welcomed the current managing funeral director and embalmer, Sherry Harder, who was born and raised in Lawrenceville, Illinois.
The tradition of giving families a comforting place to both grieve and celebrate the life of their loved one continues today.
