Born in Goldsboro, NC, she was the daughter of the late Albert Lee and Roxie Mae Massey Ingram; and was also preceded in death by a sister, Rose Kessler; and a brother, Robert Ingram.

Later, she went to work for Chesterfield County Schools as a truancy officer helping families to stay in school. Then before she retired, she was a technology teacher at Jacobs Elementary School. In her retirement years, she spent time in her yard planting flowers and planning family get-togethers. She loved seeing her grandchildren grow up and being with loved ones.
