She was born on February 10, 1942, in Palestine. The daughter of Danish Engineer, John, and his wife, Maria Neilsen. Ingrid called many places home; the Middle East, Denmark, and South Africa to name a few. With her vast travels, her fondest childhood memory was of her time spent in Cairo. She eventually emigrated to Canada, where she met and married John Cameron McDougall. With her husband Cameron, they further traveled. Residing in the Dominican Republic and ultimately settling in the United States. Cameron passed in Arizona in 1986, leaving Ingrid a widow and single mother in her forties. She never remarried. Into her final days she spoke of how much she missed her husband.
Those who have had the privilege of listening to her life's stories know what a unique and extensive historical perspective she had. Speaking eight languages fluently, living a life most only read of in books. An artist. A wife. A mother. An entrepreneur. A world traveler. A fierce spirit.
Ingrid is survived by four children; John, Ian, Kirk, and Andrea. She is grandmother to Ashley, John, Ricardo, Mathew, Emily, and Paige. She also leaves behind an expansive extended family in Canada.
