Ingeborg Luise Bloomfield

May 27, 1929 — September 26, 2023


Ingeborg Luise Bloomfield was born May 27, 1929 in Munich, Germany to Kurt and Elisabeth Spelsberg. She lived a very long life, but at times it was a difficult life. To get her high school education, Inge had to become a Nazi youth. Her father lost his furniture store and house because the Nazis believed that he was a Jewish sympathizer. During the war, Inge was sent to a boarding school in Czechoslovakia as it was safer there. As the Russian troops advanced, she had to come back home to Nurnberg, which was being bombed nightly. Nurnberg was the third most destroyed city in Germany.


After the war, food and provisions were scarce. All the schools and universities were closed. Inge got a job with the Americans as a translator for the Nurnberg trials so that she could have the food that they provided. After the Nurnberg Trials, she became a clerk for the European Exchange System. She worked there for the next 10 years and was eventually promoted to Admistrative Assistant to the Excutive Office. In 1961, her future husband, Walter Bloomfield was transferred to that office. Inge and Walter were married at St Lorenz Church in Nurnberg November 23, 1961. Walter's first wife had died of Leukemia and he had four children, David (14 yrs), Bob (13 yrs), Sue (12 yrs) and Rick ( 8yrs). Inge and Walter had 2 children, Liz and Don. The family was transferred to Minnesota in the late 1960s. Soon after coming to the United States, Walter was sent to Vietnam, leaving Inge in a different country, with children, and without a husband. When Walter left the army in 1970, the family moved to the South Denver area and then moved to Parker in 1975. Walter passed in 1989 to pancreatic cancer and Inge retired in the mid-1990's, having worked for the Cherry Creek School district for many years.


Inge was an incredible woman. She believed in hard work, perseverance, and dedication. She loved gardening, caring for her orchids, playing bridge and spending time with family. She was an inspiration to many as a good wife, mother, and grandmother. Inge is survived by Bob, Sue, and Rick Bloomfield (Dave passed a few years ago), Liz Givan and Don Bloomfield,. She had 12 grandchildren, and many great grandchildren. She will be greatly missed.


Her death is not the end but the beginning of life eternal!
