Almarie was born on October 17, 1920 in Chancellor, SD, to Joel B. and Lilly (Fenske) Strasser. In the early 20’s the Strasser family moved to Fairview, SD, where Joel and Lilly operated the General Store. The children, Almarie and her 3 siblings, got involved with helping in the store as they got old enough. The General Store was the lifeblood of the local community.
In 1938, Almarie graduated from Rufus King High School in Milwaukee, WI. She later attended business school in Milwaukee until she was called home due to her father’s illness.
Almarie met Glenn Ingebrigtson back in Fairview and was married on February 15, 1942, where they farmed until they retired. Three children were born to this union, Lorna, Donna, and Ronald. In 1960, Glenn and Almarie fostered a little girl, Lori, who became part of the family. Almarie was a longtime, faithful member of Trinity Lutheran Church where she was a past Sunday School teacher, choir director and also played the organ and piano. Glenn and Almarie also enjoyed spending winter in Texas for many years.
Almarie is survived by her 4 children: Lorna (Larry) Luecke, Las Vegas, NV, Donna Gaskin, Spring Lake, MI, Ron (Jean), Canton, SD and Lori Heiskell, Canton, SD; 11 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren; sister-in-law, LaVonne Strasser; along with numerous extended relatives and friends. She is preceded in death by her parents; her husband Glenn; son-in-law Conover; great-grandson William; sisters Lillian Watne and Joan Stubbs; and brother, Joel Strasser.
