Gertie M Ingram

Gertie M. Ingram, age 93, born in Lamesa, Texas died at the Willard Walker Hospice Home in Fayetteville, Arkansas on Wednesday, June 2, 2021.

Gertie was a lifelong employee of 1st Security Bank. When she wasn’t working, she was spending time with her family.

Gertie’s favorite things to do were working in her yard, taking care of her many flowers, and running around. She loved to go no matter where or with who, hence her nickname “Gatabout Gertie”. She would never turn down a game of cards.

Gertie is survived by two daughters, Trish Dell of Siloam Springs and Vickie Cook of Springdale; one son, Jim Ingram of Springdale; 13 Grandchildren, 21 Great Grandchildren and 10 Great Great Grandchildren.

She is preceded in death by two sons, Ben “Butch” Ingram Jr. and Rick Ingram; and one daughter, Judy Lauver.

Visitation will be held at the Backstrom-Pyeatte Funeral Home in Springdale on Friday, June 4, 2021 from 5:00pm to 8:00pm.

Funeral Services will be held at the Backstrom-Pyeatte Funeral Chapel on Saturday, June 5, 2021 at 3:00 pm. Brother Leroy Rude will officiate the service with burial being conducted at the Friendship Cemetery. Arrangements are entrusted to the direction of the Backstrom-Pyeatte Funeral Home of Springdale.

We were neighbors for a few years back in 2013 to 2017. Gertie loved her family and animals! We enjoyed her as a neighbor and she will be missed. So, sorry to hear of the families loss.
