  8. Janet (Mom), Well, what can I say about you? I came into the Ingber household when I was only 17. Hanging out with a much old, 25 year old, Charles was fun and gave me the opportunity to meet his great family. Words cannot express the lose of someone like Janet. She was full of life when anyone of us would come over. She took us in under her arm and made us feel welcome. When nights would drag on, I can remember how upset she would become when woken up from our laughter and socializing. Scary at the time, but a memory that will live on. Some nights when I would come over she would be trying to play skip-bo but had no one to play with. Playing with her was the first time I had ever played, and never did I win, but everytime I have had a chance to play it, I think of her sitting there with her smile and how she always won. Well Janet, your somewhat adopted son will have to wait to give you a shoulder rub until we meet again up in heaven. Let me last give my thanks to the whole family for years that were great and give my condolences to them. Janet will be missed but never, ever forgotten. God bless.

  9. I was very shocked to hear of this news. I enjoyed visiting and speaking with Janet (MOM). I will miss her smile and good heart. She was always accepting of Chuck’s friends. It was a good feeling to walk into her house and to hear her kind voice telling me hi and giving out a kind hug. It is still hard for me to accept the news of mom (janet). She was a lady who once you met you could never forget. I had the priviledge of knowing Ms. Ingber for a number of years. She made me feel like a son. I will always keep her in my memories and paryers.

  10. Dear Ricky, Rex, and Chuck, Our deepest sympathy are with you in this time of sorrow. The Wilson’s Barb, Theo, Jenny,Mitch & Brian

  11. My deepest condolences go out to the Ingber family and all of those who are impacted by this trying time. Janet was a neat lady. She could knock you over with her stoic and simplistic nature. Her wisdom and good common sense influnced people to bring out the best in them. That is what I will miss about her and that is what I loved about her. She was a good friend with a wonderful spirit. I will miss her greatly. Aaron

  12. Janet will allways be in my memories, from when I first knocked on the door to ask if Chuck was home, to being taken out of a down pour while looking for Chuck, and being scolded for keeping her up at night when we were cutting up later than we should have been. I wish I could have been there for my best friend and her family that has been apart of my life from my first day in San Antonio, I’m sorry that I couldn’t be there and hope you all understand. I miss her very much. She always said not to cry over her but have a good time talking about and remembering her, I plan on honoring her just that way. In Loving Memory of Janet, you will be missed for the smiles and kindness you brought to us all. Herbie.

  13. To the Ingber family, Chuck & Melissa, Your family and your mom were a second home to Herbie, friends to Sarah & Heather. Janet was classy, caring, loving. She will be missed but her memory will never fade in our hearts. With Love, Sue & Wayne Nunnery, Sarah & Heather Scranton

  14. Chuck, I am sooo sorry to hear about your Mom. She was a very special lady, and we will all miss her!! I know that she was at my wedding smiling down on me calling me Angel becuase that’s what she always called me. I love you and keep in touch Your cousin, Lorraine

  15. I attended MacArthur High school with Janet. With her surname beginning with “A” & mine with “B”, we sat next to each other in a couple of classes. My recollection of Janet lo these many years ago is that she was pretty, petite & very nice. It is strictly by coincidence that I found out about her passing,I haven’t lived in Texas since 1968. I’m very, very sorry to hear of her loss. To me, she will always be the young, pretty, vivacious girl I knew in high school. I am sure she raised a fine family.
