The Clinton Herald Thursday August 11, 1932 p. 3 Fulton, Ill. - Marvin W. Ingwersen, president of the Fulton State bank, and former Clinton resident, died Tuesday afternoon. Although he had been in gradually declining health for some time, his immediate serious illness was of but three weeks' length. Funeral services will be held at 3:30 p.m. Friday in the late home, 920 Eleventh avenue, the Rev. H.J. Rendall of Morrison, Ill., officiating. Burial will be in Oakland cemetery, Clinton. His parents preceded him in death several years ago. Left to mourn are his wife, a sister, Mrs. Putkammer, a brother Julius Ingwersen, both of Chicago, two nieces, Mrs. Ferdinand Keickhafer of Milwaukee and Mrs. Milton Pilinger of Oak Park, Ill., and two nephews, E.W. Putkammer, professor of law in the University of Chicago and Carl Ingwersen of Milwaukee. Marvin W. Ingwersen was born in the old city of Lyons, June 28, 1866, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Ingwersen. With the family he moved to Chicago in 1873 and it was in that city and in an academy at Milwaukee that he received his education. When he was eighteen years of age he entered the service of the City National bank of Clinton, remaining there for five years when he went to Omaha, Nebr., where he engaged in the live stock commission business. In 1902 he, with others, acquired control of a private bank in Fulton which they converted into a state bank known as The Fulton bank and later as the Fulton State bank. Mr. Ingwersen served as cashier until 1914 when he became president. He filled this responsible position the remainder of his life, with an understanding of financial problems that placed the institution in a position of stability. He was also president of the Iowa State Savings bank of Clinton for many years and in 1931 was chairman of the bank of directors of that bank. His position among Illinois and Iowa bankers was a most credible one and his popularity was genuinely deserved. For many years he served as a director of The Patent Novelty company of Fulton. On June 6, 1925 he was united in marriage with Miss Leona Ward of Clinton. Mr. Ingwersen was a 32nd degree Mason, Scottish Rite, member of Tabola Shrine, Freeport, Ill., and a member of Fulton City lodge 189 A.F. and A.M. He was a member of the Fulton Kiwanis club, the Wapsipinican club of Clinton and the Clinton Country club.
