Ingrid Brigitte Kortye left this life for Heaven on April 3, 2022, after a 24-year journey with cancer. She was born to Heinrich and Elisabeth Kortye on October 13, 1959, and grew up in South Florida. After she graduated from the University of Florida, (GO GATORS), she married her college sweetheart, Richard Allred, with whom she had her beloved daughter, Anna.
Ingrid loved life, animals, rock n roll music, people, and simple pleasures like her daily ice-cold sweet tea from McDonalds. She enjoyed life with her friends and family through gardening, photography, canoeing and feeding the turtles in her pond, concerts and music festivals, bops around town in her BMW, and merry meals out.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her sister, Sieglinde Mailloux, and a few beloved friends and cherished pets.
If you were among the many who prayed for her: Thank you so very, very much. Although she did not achieve permanent remission, your kind and caring thoughts kept her, as well as her faith, strong.
Ingrid is survived by her daughter, Anna Allred, her sister Isolde Cahill (Gerry), her four nieces, and many close friends… and her mule, three dogs, and four cats. We will all miss you.... "Ing" "Superwoman" "The Energizer Bunny"... terribly.
A celebration of Ingrid's life will be held on October 15th at 2:00pm at Albritton Funeral Home (1020 Tift Ave N, Tifton, GA 31794). The family will greet visitors after the service.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to the Humane Society of the United States, ASPCA at https://secure.aspca.org/donate/ps-honor or American Cancer Society at https://donate3.cancer.org.
