Mother Evelyn Greggs Wyche Ingraham

December 3, 1934 ~ October 27, 2021 (age 86)


Mother Evelyn Greggs Wyche Ingraham was born on December 3, 1934 in Clyattville, Georgia to the late R. B. Greggs Sr. and the late Lula Bruton Greggs. Evelyn  attended Woods Chapel and Dasher High School in Lowndes County.

      Evelyn accepted Christ at an early age, was baptized and joined New Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church in   Clyattille where she remained a serving, faithful, committed member and further serving as mother of the church. At church dinner      gatherings, she was known for the best and biggest pot of chicken and rice along with the biggest and best pot of collard greens. At family gatherings, their mouths watered and awaited for her to drive up with her famous sweet potato pies and sweet potato bread. (Just saying…) She enjoyed her flowers, planting fruit trees and growing vegetables.

Evelyn was joined in matrimony to the late Rufus Wyche Sr. of Pinetta, Florida. To this union three children were born.

During her lifetime she was employed at MicroCraft, Winn-Dixie Packers, and Metal Products.

As a good soldier, she fought a good fight then was called to be with the Lord on October 27, 2021. She was preceded in death by: her parents R.B. Sr. and Lula Greggs, husband Rufus  Wyche Sr., a sweet darling granddaughter Kayla K. Wyche, siblings: R. B. Jr., James, Eloise, VirgieLee, Jimmie, Ruth, and Marie.
