Roselyn was born on March 9, 1918 in Browerville, Minnesota. She spent her childhood and youth in Browerville, graduating from Browerville High School, followed by attending Northwestern University in Minneapolis and graduating as a registered nurse. After graduating from Northwestern, she worked as a nurse in Minnesota before moving to California. While in California she met a handsome Navy man by the name of John Ingram and shortly thereafter they were married. Following his discharge from the Navy, they moved to Taft, Texas where they made their home and reared their family. As a Minnesotan, she often said it took 50 years before being accepted as a Texan. Although shy, she was strong, intelligent and witty. She was whiskey in a teacup! She was born during the Spanish Flu pandemic and died during the Coronavirus pandemic. At her wish, in lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to your charity of choice or the American Cancer Society. A memorial celebration of life will be held at a later date.
