Annette Bailey Ingersoll passed away on July 28, 2016, in Helena, Montana. Annette was born on February 28, 1926 to W. Francis and Cassandra Bailey in Salt Lake City and had five siblings--Don, Barbara, Margene, Ralph, and Rex. Despite being reared during the Great Depression, Annette had a happy start in life thanks to industrious and nurturing parents. She spent three wondrous years growing up in Hawaii while her parents served a mission for the LDS church. This experience exposed her to a variety of cultures and experiences that was unique to most Utah residents born in her generation. After graduating from Brigham Young University, Annette married Jim Ingersoll on July 29, 1949, in the LDS Logan Temple. They began married life in Northern California where Jim finished graduate school and Annette taught elementary school. In 1953, they moved to Oxnard, California, and Annette devoted herself to rearing her five children. After the youngest started school, Annette went back to teaching kindergarten; she retired twenty years later from the Hueneme School District. Annette loved antique furniture and had an entrepreneurial spirit, which resulted in her and her husband operating Ingersoll’s Antiques in downtown Camarillo from 1975 to 2007 and a number of successful real estate ventures. Annette was very modest about her many achievements, travels and experiences. She was never critical of others and always expressed appreciation for the many opportunities she had in life. Blessed with an inquiring mind, Annette was an avid reader; had a phenomenal memory and navigational skills; and a unique ability to connect with children. She was the center of all family activities and created many wonderful memories for her children and grandchildren. Holidays and Sundays were always very special events. She adored her family and they adored her as well. She was so proud of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. After enjoying most of her life in good health, Annette was diagnosed with macular degeneration in her early 70’s. She dealt with the challenge of vision loss with grace and tenacity and was very appreciative of the support, assistance and fellowship provided to those with visual impairments. Failing eyesight necessitated a move from the beloved family home in Camarillo Heights and Annette went to live with daughter Jean’s family in Boca Raton, Florida, in the winter and with her daughter Sue in Helena, Montana in the summer. Annette was preceded in death by her husband Jim, her daughter Ann Scott, her parents and all of her brothers and sisters. She is survived by her four children and their spouses: Sue (Kurt Hill), Jean (Fenton Markevich), Keith (Marcia), Tom (Pam) and son-in-law Larry Scott; 18 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. Funeral services will be held at 11 am on Saturday, August 6, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints located at 4345 Las Posas Road in Camarillo, California.
