Mary C. Ingram, Mayc to her family made her way into the world in Grenada, Mississippi on November 15, 1939. She entered into Heaven’s Gate on June 12, 2021 at 4:54 AM.
Mary had an unwavering faith in God and was a member of the Greater Love Missionary Baptist Church, serving on their Mission 1 Committee. Born to L.V. Thomas and Fetus McGee she was raised by her grandmother, Mama Lou. She married Clarence Ingram at the age of 15 and together they went on to have seven children. They later divorced. Mary led her family and several others from the South to Ohio in search of a better life. Shortly after moving to San Antonio, Mary began working for the San Antonio State School. Finding her passion, she formed her own homecare service eventually opening three residences.
Mary will be remembered for always being kind, honest and giving. She would help anyone in need and never allowed others to do for her. Even if you thought you were taking her to dinner, she would manage to either pay or give you the money back in an unexpected way. But, she was not one that you could take advantage of when it came to business. She was a shrewd businesswoman and entrepreneur who remembered everything!
Mary's true joy and personal purpose in life was to shower love on her family. Mary worked tirelessly with thoughts of her family's well-being until her last breath. She wanted her children to be "okay." All of her children and grandchildren can attest to her unfailing love and her constant helping whether it be words of wisdom or encouragement, babysitting or monetary support. Until the day the Lord called our precious mother home, she just wanted to serve God, love her family and know that they loved her. Yes, mother our love for you goes beyond words and we will love and cherish our memories of you and your never ending love for us. We surely will pass those memories on for generations to come.
The Lord has gained an angel.
