The Inglet family operated a farm equipment and land-leveling business and leveled much of the land around Holtville. The five Inglet children worked in the business and often rode horses to school.

Survivors include his wife, Georgia, a brother, Lonnie, and a daughter, Nancy Witham, all of Modesto, and a sister, Laura Mae White of Dunsmuir.



Private services were Nov. 24 in Forest Lawn Cemetery in Covina Hills for Ruth Lockard, 96, of Tucson, a former Imperial Valley resident who died Nov. 19 in Tucson.

Mrs. Lockard was born Sept. 19, 1905, in Lee, Mont.

She earned a bachelor's degree from University of California, Los Angeles and a master's degree in education from San Diego State University.

Her teaching career spanned 40-plus years, most of which were in the Westmorland and Niland elementary schools.

She married Carl Lockard. The Lockards resided in Calipatria for 30 years.

She was preceded in death by her husband in 1972.

Survivors include her sons, James Lockard of Eugene, Ore., and Jerry Lockard of Tucson; sister, Marjorie Scheib of La Mesa; and four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
