A long-time member of Black Mountain Baptist Church, Martha loved quilting and baking, especially for her church. She dearly loved her family.

In addition to her husband and her parents, she was also preceded in death by one brother and his wife; Marvin and Doris Bumgarner.

Martha is survived by two sons; Charles (Denise) Ingram Jr. and James (Ann) Ingram and five grandchildren; Bryan (Lindsey) Ingram, Christopher (LaToya) Ingram, Rebecca (Michael) Kolcun, Tara (Matthew) Wood, and Brandi Ingram. She is also survived by three great grandchildren; Gabi Ingram, Jace Ingram, and Abel Ingram, two sisters; Willa Mae Stewart and Eddie Robinson, and several nieces and nephews.

So sorry for your loss. She was loved by not only Black Mountain Baptist Church but by the whole community. Her quilted wall hangings have been cherished by members of the church and will always hold her and Charles' memory in our hearts as we continue to enjoy looking at them. Martha and Charles loved and supported the youth of our church and at times employed them. Charles loved teaching the youth skills and Martha loved feeding them. Our sons, James and Edward, will always have good memories of times spent with Martha and Charles. Martha has joined Charles and they are in the same place now with other loved ones that they have missed for a while. Thoughts of comfort are sent to the family in the days ahead. Bill, Ruth, Edward and James Thompson
