So very sorry. The times I spent at your house around your mom showed me what mothers we're supposed to be like.

Sharon McTamney Vold, Senoia, Ga

We are so sorry to hear of your loss. We all had many great memories together. In years past, (mainly when meeting in Macon years) I would always look for your mom at conventions. Occasionally we would be assigned to the same one. I was always so happy to see special older ones from our College Park years. Most of our parents from those years have now gone to sleep in death. We have so much to look forward to.......a happy resurrection reunion of old friends and families. Hope to see you all there. Would love to hear from you............Love, Joy

Joy (Register) Durham, Dallas, Ga

Your mom was a sweetie. My parents both gone too. We miss them all and look forward to the time they will return younger than we are now.

Mark Shumaker, Flowery Branch, Ga

Dear Lisa and Gina, it has been many years since we have seen you. Do you remember the book study at the Shumaker house when we were teenagers? We will hopefully ALL look forward to seeing our parents in a beautiful new world!!

Joel Shumaker, Atlanta, GA

My condolences to the family. May you find comfort in the scripture at Revelation 21:4 and the website jw.org.

To the family of Sis. Ingram, we wish to express our deepest sympathy. We only knew your mother for a short time, yet we saw what a beautiful, friendly and caring person she was. May our heavenly father, provide comfort for your family in your time of bereavement. And may such words as John 5:28,29 provide a measure of solace for it says. "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life.

Elijah and Roslyn Green, Savannah, GA

My deepest condolences.May you and your dear loved ones find comfort in the Bible's promise that one day soon the sting of death will be no more.(Hosea 13:14)

Ursula, Pooler, Ga

I am sorry for your loss. Death is painful to all of us. However God's word the Bible always offers encouragement. A scripture I find comforting is Isaiah 25:8. There Jehovah promises to do away with death and all things that bring us pain. That will be very satisfying! I hope this thought has been comforting to you. May positive thoughts fill you hearts and minds as you endure this difficult time.

R.G., Savannah, Ga

While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having our Heavenly Father return your dear one to you. You have our condolences.

Rita Mills Ingram, 93, died September 12 at Insignia of Savannah. Born on October 1, 1923 in Statesville, NC, Rita was the daughter of Glen Williams Mills and Nancy Shields Mills. She is predeceased by her father, mother, brother Glenn Edward Mills, sister Rena Mills Ledford, and her husband, Everett E. Ingram, Jr.

Rita was a graduate of Cool Springs High School in Statesville, NC. After marrying, she lived in Atlanta most of her life and worked at several firms as a switchboard operator/receptionist. More importantly, Rita was a loving and devoted wife and mother who gave of herself sacrificially to her family.

She was the “Queen of Casseroles” and all things “Jello”. Her family, homemaking and cooking were her favorite things. She was a Jehovah’s Witness and served in the pioneer ministry in her youth. She maintained lifelong strong faith in God’s promise of a new heaven and earth and of a resurrection.

She is survived by daughters, Gina Reed (Jim) of Savannah, and Lisa Ingram (David Nugent) of Dacula; two grandchildren, Rachel Reed and Hunter Reed (Kim); one great-grandson, Grady Reed, and one niece Brenda Corcoran and family.

The family is grateful to the staff of Insignia of Savannah and Spanish Oaks Hospice for the care and love shown to Rita.

A private family burial is planned at Westview Cemetery in Atlanta.
