Ingeborg Fester, 82, of Sheboygan passed away on Wednesday, February 19, 2020 at Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice. Ingeborg was born in Erkersreuth, Germany on January 26, 1938 to the late Emil and Hildegard (Pruell) Gernlein. She was united in marriage to Guenther Fester on November 23, 1957 at Trinity Lutheran Church. Ingeborg was a volunteer nurse’s aide at Memorial Hospital in the early 1950’s and a Toe Seamer at Wigwam. Most of all, she was a loving mother to her children. It was important to Ingeborg to consistently read her Bible, attend Bible studies and especially be part of her prayer group. She enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren, shopping, walking at the mall and sharing her love of Jesus Christ, especially with the elderly and home bound through visitation. She attended Grace Orthodox Presbyterian Church.
