Our beloved Ingrid entered into the Lord’s rest on 12/31/18. She is survived by her children, Lydia Jimenez and Kevin Scallion, her granddaughter, Mariel and her son-in-law Ro. She was preceded in death by her granddaughter, Audrey, her husband, Robert Scallion, her mother and father, Kurt and Elise Schaebitz and her brothers, Johannes, Gunter and Albrecht.
Ingrid immigrated to the United States in 1959 after WWII, never to return to her birthplace or to see her family. She was trained as a nurse in Germany. She eventually moved to California after living in New York. Here in California she worked at Alta Bates Hospital. In her later years she worked at Westgate Convalescent Center where, for 30 years, she was a friend and helper to all who knew her. Ingrid will be remembered by all who knew her as a kind and generous soul. She took what life gave her and made the best of a difficult situation. She will be remembered by her family for her sweet disposition, her beautiful smile, her bright blue eyes and a laugh that would make everyone join in. We love you Omi and we miss you dearly. We look forward to the day when we will all be re-united again in Our Lord’s beautiful rest.
