Delores (Ingram) Beaty, 83, a resident of Cleveland, Tennessee, went to be with her Lord Jesus on Monday October 23, 2017 with her loved ones by her side.

She was born on Nov. 27, 1933, to the late Elsie (Mullinax) Gates and the late Jim Ingram. All who knew Delores knew by how she lived her life, that she loved the Lord. She always worked hard and she loved to be outside working in her yard. More than anything, Delores loved her family. She will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother and will be dearly missed by all that knew her.

Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her daughter, Connie Forriester; brother, Ernie Ingram; and sisters, Norma Johnson and Jackie Cathey.

She leaves behind to cherish her memory, the love of her life and her devout husband of 69 years, Rev. Bill Beaty; children, Clinton (Linda) Beaty, Donna Prince, Ricky Beaty, Jerri Williams, and Misty (Tracy) Sewell; daughter-in-law, Theresa (Lowe) Beaty; special and only niece, Debbie Herman; six granddaughters, Wendy (Jon) Perry, Tambra (Mark) Ratledge, Stephanie (Sam) Sewell, Angie (Michael) Waters, Tara (Joey) Scott, and Deestiney Beaty; nine great-grandchildren, Haden/Ethan, Halia/Makai, Gage/Gavin, Steven, and (Seth/Sierra), as well as several nephews, extended family, and friends.

The family will hold visitation on Friday, Oct. 27, from 5-7 p.m. at Companion Funeral Home, at 2419 Georgetown Road NW, Cleveland, Tn. 37311.

A celebration of life graveside service is planned for 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 28, in the Hillcrest Memorial Gardens with Minister Eddie Scott officiating the service.
