It is with tremendous sorrow that we share the news of the passing of our dearest Ingrid. Born in Toronto on September 10, 1964 to proud and loving parents, Raita (nee Kupcis) and Haralds Unterbergs (predeceased 1977). Loving and doting mother to Nicholas and Michelle (husband Jay) and their fur baby, Bandit. Ingrid is survived by her sisters Sandra (husband Zintis) and Anita (husband Charles), and will always be remembered by her nieces and nephew Guntars, Mara, Daila, Emily and Ally. She will be sadly missed by her Aunt and Uncle and God Parents, Baiba and Ojars Kupcis, along with all of our extended family.
Ingrid was a tremendous mother to Nick and Michelle. Raising them as a single Mom, she instilled empathy, compassion, fairness, and unconditional love. Her kindness could be seen in everything she did, always putting others’ needs before her own. Ingrid’s creativity always shone through in the many cards and gifts she would create for family members that will now be cherished mementos. Ingrid always worked hard to balance her personal life and a long career at OLG. Her favourite time of year was her summer vacation at Paudash Lake, always creating unforgettable memories and family experiences.
Ingrid was diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour in 2017. She continued to show strength and perseverance through to her last days. She was surrounded by loved ones every step of the way, sharing memories and enjoying a slice of cake whenever possible. Ingrid had such a large presence in the lives of those around her, and her absence will always be felt.
Due to COVID19, a private family service has been held. If you wish to make a donation, please make it in support of the Dorothy Ley Hospice that, along with their fabulous staff and care-givers provided Ingrid and our family such kind and caring support.
Please feel free to upload your memories and photos as you help celebrate the life of Ingrid.
