Elizabeth Ingels Dies At Age 69

Elizabeth Gladys Ingels, 69, a native of Monterey and lifelong resident of the Peninsula area, died this morning at Esketon Monterey Health Care Center. She had been in poor health for several years and death was not unexpected.
Beth Ingels spent her early life in Monterey and on the Corral de Tierra ranch owned by her parents, the late Clyde and Edith Ingels. She attended Washington Grammar School there, but later returned to the family home on Larkin street in Monterey and was graduated from Monterey Union High School in 1924. She continued her education at the University of California at Berkeley.
It was there she began her long association with jour¬nalism as a member of the staff of the Daily Cal. the campus newspaper.
Miss Ingels did publicity work for the YMCA in San Francisco and for G. T, Marsh Co. before returning to the Peninsula to become the first advertising director for Holman's Department Store in Pacific Grove.
But her first love was writing and this led to many editorial positions on the Peninsula.
She was editor of the lively Pacific Grove Tide many years ago, was a member of the staff of the Carmel Pine Cone and at one time published her own weekly The Paisano. in Carmel Valley
The choice of the name for her publication was logical since she was of a group that shared a love and appreciation for the Paisanos with the late author, John Steinbeck, Ed Ricketts and their mutual friend Susan Gregory, then a teacher at Monterey High School.
Miss Ingels writing style was wryly humorous and in this vein she often wrote of the Larkin Street Gang in Monterey of which she was a prominent member.
All of her writing reflected a great gentleness and a love of some people and of all animals.
Miss Ingels was twice a member of The Herald staff, first as a general assignment reporter covering Carmel dur¬ing World War II and later, from 1957 until her retirement in 1970, as a member of the Peninsula Life department.
Miss Ingels is survived by two brothers, Roland C. of Monte¬rey and Howard B. of Seaside, and a sister, Mrs. Mary J. Rivera of La Canada.
At her wish, inurnment at the Little Chapel-by-the-Sea was this morning without services.
Mission Mortuary was in charge
