Ingram H. Nesseth -- Kenyon

Ingram H. Nesseth, 85, of Kenyon, died Tuesday, July 16, 2013, at his home.

Ingram was born July 16, 1928, in Zumbrota, the son of Simon and Ingebor (Jacobson) Nesseth. He was baptized into faith and confirmed his faith at Vang Lutheran Church. Ingram was raised and attended country school in the Nansen area and also attended school at Kenyon High School. His first job was learning the trade of becoming a cheese maker. He worked at North Star Creamery in Kenyon. He was united in marriage to Beverly Wallaker on Sept. 4, 1949, in Holden Lutheran Church. The couple made their home in the Kenyon area.

In 1957, Ingram owned and operated the Kenyon Dairy, delivering milk, cheese and butter to homes in Kenyon, West Concord and Nerstrand which he did until 1980. Ingram then began working at Carleton College in Northfield, and in his retirement years, he served as custodian at First Evangelical Lutheran Church.

Ingram was a very patient and quiet man. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and was an excellent golfer. He loved watching his grandchildren in their activities. Homemade soups, dumplings and homemade baked beans were some of Ingram's specialties. He was a great cook and rarely shared his recipes even with his family. Ingram kept busy playing cards with family and friends and he also enjoyed doing word puzzles. He was a longtime member at First Evangelical Lutheran Church.

He is survived by his wife Beverly Nesseth of Kenyon; three sons Steven (and Jane) Nesseth of Faribault; Bradley (and Carmen) Nesseth of Kenyon; and Thomas (and Nona) Nesseth of Shorewood; a daughter, Mary (and Darin) Zimmerman of Cedar Rapids, Iowa; his sister, Sandra (and Harold) Fogelson of Kenyon; nine grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; a brother-in-law, Owen Musgjerd of Rochester and a sister-in-law, Audrey Nesseth of Kenyon.
