Mary Katherine Satterwhite Ingram stepped into Heaven, at 95 years of age, on Thursday, March 24, 2022. Her complete presence there had been long awaited by Jesus, and her husband, Charles Ingram, who preceded her in death in 1986. We rejoice that the longing of her heart has been granted. She parted peacefully at Caring Home With Friends in Carrollton, Texas. Katherine’s great legacy is testified through her immediate family, which includes three children, Maryann Smith, Lynn Ingram, and Larry Ingram, who all expanded to 6 grandchildren, 34 great grandchildren, and 3 great great grandchildren. Her remaining extended family includes 1 sister, 1 brother in law, 1 sister in law, and the respective families of all, including 3 siblings who preceded her.
A Celebration of Life service is scheduled for 1pm, Saturday, April 9, 2022, to be held at First Baptist Church Euless (also called Cross City Church) in Euless, Texas.
Katherine, aka Kat, served others in whatever she was doing throughout her entire Life. Whether working in a paid position or serving community, she was winning hearts through her love for Jesus. As an artist, she leaves behind family treasured paintings, many of which earned high placement in the annual Exxon exhibitions of employee participation. Charles began work for Exxon when they moved the family from Longview, Texas to Irving, Texas in the mid 1950’s. Another of her many talents included her love for sewing and crafting. She produced heirloom dolls that remain in the family. Her skills went on to bear fruit, through her patient instruction, in creating a professional seamstress in one of her children. The blessing of her ability to play piano by ear invoked music lessons for all 3 of her children, two of whom have played in church venues. Many family vacations were spent camping and boating alongside cousins within the closeness of our big family. Her love for animals welcomed family pets from horses to cats, and much in between. This included having owned cattle for business and better food, and horses she and Charles rode in quad drills, and shows registered in the category of Western Pleasure. For many years she was faithful in teaching children’s classes in church, and later served her community during elections at voting polls. She was well diversified.
The legacy of her Life is a testimony and shining example born of a heart full of Love. She Lived a Proverbs 31 Life.
