Ethel Irene Ingram McGhee, 71, of Henry, VA peacefully made her transition from her home, surrounded by family, to her heavenly home on Monday, July 18, 2022. She was born in Henry County, VA on September 7, 1950, to the late Monroe Birch Ingram and the late Irene Carter Ingram. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Robert Douglas Ingram and a very special niece, Jenny Cassell.
Ethel was a devoted and faithful wife, mother, and sister. She was very compassionate and loved doing for others. She especially loved sharing her love for the Lord with others everywhere she went. As her illness progressed, she dearly missed the fellowship she had with her friends at Victory Christian Center.
She graduated from John D. Bassett High School and Patrick Henry Community College. After working for many years at Bassett-Walker, she enjoyed her job in local schools as a teacher’s aide, and as a caretaker for several years.
Ethel is survived by her husband of fifty years, Ronnie G. McGhee, Sr; her son, Ronnie “Ron” G. McGhee, Jr. (Sarah); sisters, Frances “Judy” Ingram Reed (Bennett) and Nancy Ingram Gilley (Mike); brother, Wilbert Ingram; nieces, nephews, cousins, and an abundance of friends.
Visitation will be held from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Friday, July 22, 2022, at Norris Funeral Services. Funeral service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, July 22, 2022, at Norris Funeral Services with Janet McGhee officiating. Burial will follow the service at Henry Memorial Park.
