Obituary for Thelma D. Gray
Ms. Thelma Doretha “Reese Cup” Ingram, 126 Carver Street, Blackstone, VA, went to be with the Lord on Friday, January 8, 2021, after a brief illness. She was born on August 27, 1956, to the late Fletcher T. Ingram, Sr. & Thelma E. Staten. She was preceded in death by her father, Fletcher T. Ingram, Sr., paternal grandparents, Charlie & Sennie Campbell Ingram, maternal grandparents, Woodrow & Sarah Parker Wilson, and son, Harold “Connell” Ingram. Her mother, sons, brothers, and grandchildren were her heartbeat.

Reese attended Nottoway County High School and retired from Piedmont Geriatric Hospital in Burkeville, VA. After retiring, she worked part-time at Reiss. Reese loved entertaining, dancing, and family gatherings. She was also a very competitive card player, especially bid whisk and spades. You could only love her, after being her partner in either game. Reese was baptized at an early age and served on both the usher and culinary ministries, at Mt. Gazerine Baptist Church, until her passing. In the Usher’s Ministry, she enjoyed being the door greeter, with her beautiful smile.

Reese leaves to cherish her memories, three sons, Jimmy L. Gray (Joyce), Timothy J. Ingram (Marline), & Tremaine T. Gray (Daphne), her mother, Thelma E. Staten, four brothers, Fletcher T. Ingram, Jr., James T. Ingram, Reidy W. Ingram, and Richard L. Ingram, Sr. (Cynthia), ten grandchildren, Jemel Gray, Cornelius Felder, Damien Jackson, Danielle Jackson, Jim’Easha Gray, Jordan Jackson, Ke’Maya White, Thomas Ingram, Jimmarious Gray, and Khalani Jennings, three great grandchildren, Jeremiah Gray, Cayden Felder, and Cameron Felder, six aunts, three uncles, and a host of nieces and nephews, other relatives, cousins, and friends.

Graveside Services Thursday, January 14, 2021 at 1:00 PM at M. Gazerine Baptist Church.

W.E. Hawkes & Son Funeral Home of Blackstone in charge of arrangements.
