    • Note:
      From the Memphis Commercial Appeal, 23 MAR 2012:
      West Memphis - Magalene McKinnon Ingram passed away peacefully on
      Wednesday, March 21, 2012 in her West Memphis home,
      mere months from what would have been her 100th birthday. She was
      born to Edgar Alonzo McKinnon and Maggie Dale Tyson McKinnon
      in Rutherford, Tennessee on October 22, 1912. The family moved to
      Armorel, Arkansas in 1926. At age 18 this beautiful Arkansas teen
      was named Miss Mississippi County. Following her high school graduation
      she met William K. "Bill" Ingram, and the couple married on
      April 8, 1933. The family moved to West Memphis in 1944 where
      together they raised four children, the late Billie Dean (Reeder);
      Magalene Ann "Susie" (Pugh), of Little Rock; William Kent, Jr., and
      Keith McKinnon, both of West Memphis. Her beloved husband,
      W.K. Ingram, served in the Arkansas Senate from 1963 to 1981, when
      he passed away at age 71. For Magalene, her greatest
      passion has always been her children, followed closely by
      her church. She was well known for her wonderful sense of humor
      and her love of playing Mah Jong with friends. During World War II
      she was an early member of the Twenty Club, who knitted sweaters,
      gloves and hats for the soldiers. Some 60 years later, the Twenty
      Club continues as an active civic organization in West Memphis.
      In December of 1995, Mrs. Ingram was honored by the Crittenden
      County Heart Association as the Honoree of the Year. She was
      a Heritage Member of the West Memphis First United Methodist
      Church and with friends, Elaine Looney and the late Nola
      Greenwood (Clark), founded The Encourager Prayer Group in 1966.
      Mrs. Ingram was the last surviving member of the original
      Methodist Church in West Memphis which was often referred to
      as "the little white church". Long-time friend and prayer partner,
      Elaine Looney described Mrs. Ingram as a beautiful and devout
      Christian. "Some of us talk to God and lift up prayers. But, in
      Magalene's case, we always felt she had a direct line. She was
      a dear friend and such a blessing in my life." In seeking to honor
      their mother in a special way, her children chose to endow a professorship
      at the Reynolds Institute on Aging at UAMS. Now, the
      mother, who not only encouraged education with her own children, helps
      provide educational programs for medical students and
      doctors who have an interest in aging adults. The Magalene McKinnon Ingram
      Chair in Geriatric Education is a lasting, loving way
      to recognize this special woman. Mrs. Ingram is also survived by 14 grandchildren,
      24 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great- grandchildren.
      The family expressed special thanks to Crittenden Hospice and to those special
      caregivers, Mary Carter, Mit Doss, Rosie Green,
      Rosetta Johnson, Mazie May, Peggy Shempert and Cathy Taylor who provided
      such compassion and loving care to Mrs. Ingram
      at the end of her life. Services will be held at First United Methodist
      Church, West Memphis, on Saturday, March 24 beginning with
      visitation in Deneke Hall at 1:30 p.m. followed by the service at 3 p.m.
      Roller Citizens Funeral Home has charge. The family requests
      that, in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be made to the Magalene M.
      Ingram Maintenance Fund at First United Methodist Church,
      215 North Missouri Street, West Memphis. Burial will be in Crittenden Memorial
      Park, Marion. Services by Roller-Citizens Funeral
