Ingrid D. ‘Ing’ Barker, 47

Posted on January 17, 2013

Ingrid D. “Ing” Barker, 47, of Bluffton, joyfully entered into God’s presence Tuesday evening, Jan. 15, 2013, at her home surrounded by her family. Ing was a person of strong faith and her family is comforted in the belief that she is now experiencing all that Heaven has to offer.  Most importantly, Ing is now beholding the face of Jesus. Ing is no longer living by faith, but by sight.
Ing was born Oct. 19, 1965, in Muncie, Ind., to Bill and Goldie (Tipton) Roberts. Her father preceded her in death. She married Wayne Barker Aug. 15, 1987, in Muncie. 
Ing graduated from Muncie Central High School in 1984 and attended Ball State University. Ingrid worked in sales and marketing for Preferred Inc. She was later employed with Edward D. Jones as a financial advisor.
Most recently, she was an executive assistant at Franklin Electric Company.
Ing’s greatest love was caring for and serving her family and friends. She was an active member of Life Community Church and the YAYAS Bible study group.
Ing is survived by her husband, Wayne Barker of Bluffton; a daughter, Taylor N. Barker of Bluffton; a son, Collin W. Barker of Bluffton; her mother, Goldie Roberts of Muncie, two brothers, Mike (Tina) Roberts and Tim Roberts, both of Muncie; and by several aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews.
Calling hours are 2 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013, and from 2 to 3 p.m. Sunday at the Life Community Church in Bluffton. A service celebrating Ingrid’s life will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday at the church with Pastor Chad Ringger officiating. Burial will be in the Garden of Chimes at Elm Grove Cemetery. Preferred memorials are to the Wells County Boys and Girls Club, Wells County Youth for Christ, or the Bluffton Tiger Athletic Boosters. Ingrid’s family strongly suggests that memorial contributions be made in lieu of flowers. 
The Thoma/Rich, Chaney & Lemler Funeral Home are in charge of the arrangements.
