Ingelore M. Boerner died Jan. 22, 2017.
Inge was born Nov. 22, 1928 in Stettin, Germany. She was predeceased by her mother, Margarete, on July 8, 1945, and her father, Richard, on Sept. 7, 1981, and her sister, Gisela Novovic in 1984.
Inge leaves behind her loving husband of 57 years, Gundolf, as well as her daughters, Ute Campbell (Dan) of Brownville, New York, and Christine Cornetto (Chuck) of Deland, Florida, and three grandchildren, Kirsten Richnavsky (Thomas Frowein) of Ballston Spa, New York, Alex Richnavsky (Amanda Ridella) of Fort Hood, Texas, and Caitlyn Cornetto (JJ Moraes) of FSU, Tallahassee, Florida.
Inge came to the United States on June 22, 1962 from Hamburg, Germany with Gundolf and Ute, settling in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where Christine was born. The family moved outside of Chicago, Illinois in 1972, and later to West Milford, New Jersey in 1977. In 1983, they fulfilled their lifelong dream and purchased the Maple Leaf Motel in Lake Placid, New York, which they owned and operated for 10 years. After retiring, they stayed in Lake Placid for another 15 years. They then moved to Deland, Florida, spending most of their summers in northern New York.
Inge, along with Gundolf and her family, travelled extensively throughout the USA and Canada via Airstream, BMW motorcycle and Bluebird motorhome. After retiring, their love of travel included excursions to Germany and Europe, making new friends wherever they went.
Inge was a wonderful wife, mother and Oma to her family. She was known as Oma, was loved by all who knew her and will be dearly missed.
There will be a Celebration of Life gathering held Sunday, Feb. 19 at the Whisperwood Community Center in Deland, Florida. Donations may be made to the Alzheimer's Foundation in her name.
