Mary Ann Ingram Halsey, 82, beloved and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, left this earth peacefully on Wednesday, May 30, 2018.
Mary Ann was born in Bassett, Va., and raised in and around Marion, Va. She met Bill in their high school years in Marion, and she and Bill married as she finished nursing school in Roanoke, Va. at the age of 20. Mary Ann enjoyed raising her five children and supporting Bill in his career with U.S. Steel, as well as their numerous moves around the country. She especially enjoyed Bill’s retirement and their move to Corrales, N.M., where they were able to fully embrace their love of New Mexico and the Native American culture. They did this through serving as international visitor hosts, docents at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, life-long learning instructors, and other personal volunteer work with their Native American craftsmen and women, helping them run more effective business of their trades.
Much like her husband, Mary Ann will be remembered for many things like her strong devotion to her family, her quick wit and laughter, her loyalty to Virginia Tech and Pittsburgh Steelers football, her love of hummingbirds and the enjoyment she got from visiting with family and friends.
Mary Ann was preceded in death by her husband of 60 years, B.R. “Bill” Halsey; her parents, James Ellis and Doris Brown Martin Ingram of Marion, Va.; her grandson, Jerred Steven Halsey of Chesterton, IN. She is survived by her sister, Iris Faye Ingram Goodman of Lenoir City, TN; brother James Sherrill Ingram (Jeanne); her children, Teresa Ann Weisenburger (Bill) of Triangle, Va., Bryan Rogers Halsey (Carol) of Marion, Va., Philip Wayne Halsey (Cindy) of Keller, Texas, Warren Jackson Halsey (Beverly) of Wyomissing, Pa., and Laura Elizabeth Bradley (Jeffrey) of Pittsburgh, Pa.; her grandchildren, Breanne Halsey Weisenburger Adkins (Byron) of DeRidder, La., William David Weisenburger III (Amy)of Kents Store, Va., Rebekah Carol Halsey of Marion, Va., Leah Elizabeth Halsey Horrigan (Stephen) of Danville, Ind., Benjamin Rogers Halsey of Indianapolis, Ind., Amy Elizabeth Halsey Simcox (Stephen) of Dallas Texas, Shelby Lynn Halsey of Houston, Texas, Audrey Amelia Halsey and William Ellis Halsey of Wyomissing, Pa.; and four great-grandchildren, Valerie Alice Adkins and Thomas Jackson Adkins of Deridder, La., and Cole Alan Weisenburger and William David Weisenburger IV of Kents Store, Va. Mary Ann will also be sorely missed by her four-legged companion, Maxi the cat.

Please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of your dear love one. A scripture that has given me much comfort is Revelation 21:4 which promises that one day death will be no more. I hope this scripture brings comfort to your family during this difficult time.

To Mary Ann's family and friends, I truly am sorry for your loss. I know you must miss her so much. With this pain we also have hope. At John 5:28,29 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." We are promised by our Grand Creator that a resurrection is going to take place. When he says he will do something we can have full confidence it will happen. We all look forward to when this is fulfilled.
