Ted Ingram, 92, died on August 14, five weeks to the day after his beloved Peggy passed away and his family believe the pair simply could not live without each other. Teds funeral is on Friday at the Marlborough Road chapel in Ilfracombe at 2.30pm, the same venue as Peggys. The Gazette reported last year how the couple had celebrated their 70th anniversary at Fernbank House care home in Ilfracombe and their devotion remained undimmed. Ted was a landing craft driver in the Royal Navy during D-Day and endured some hair-raising experiences landing troops under fire. The couple had set their wedding day for June 25, 1944, little knowing D-Day was about to separate them, but every cloud has a silver lining and Teds craft was torpedoed on its way back to Portsmouth. It meant he got a short leave and was able to marry on June 28 Hitler did his best to disrupt things and flying bombs whistled overhead as they said their vows in a bomb-damaged church.Together foreverAt Peggys funeral, daughter Donella Woolmer read out poems Ted had written to her during the war, including one that promised they would be together forever one day. Mum and dad were inseparable in life, and also even in death. We really believe they are reunited now, she said. He told the carers he just wanted to go and be with his Peggy. During the war, despite the hundreds of miles between them, the couple agreed to pause nightly at 9pm and think of each other.Well see about that!Ted first set eyes on Peggy on December 7, 1941, in the foyer of a cinema where she worked. He told the Gazette last year: I was in love with her as soon as I saw her, he recalled. She had been talking to one of the ushers. I asked who was that lovely girl? and he said lay off, shes mine! So I said, Well see about that! The couple leave three daughters, Donella, Sandra and Maureen, as well as eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
