Paulette Ingram Spurgeon Farrar passed away peacefully on September 17, 2023. She was a member of Valley View Free Will Baptist Church. Paulette worked for many years at Barrett Carpets in Dalton, GA. She was known for her delicious biscuits and spent many mornings through the years baking for the events at church. In more recent years, Paulette liked a good conversation and will be missed on Saturday mornings with the ladies at Mary Helen’s Beauty Shop. The family would like to send sincere thanks to the Director and staff at Lodge at Wood Village in Sweetwater, TN. Julia, Amanda, Angie, Kayla, Shirley, Missy, Sheila, Madonna, and the rest of the team there made Paulette’s last months comfortable and full of comradery. We would also like to gratefully acknowledge Lisa Ingram’s ongoing presence and support, which has been a tremendous source of comfort and strength.
Paulette was preceded in death by her parents Blanche Elvada Montooth Ingram and Joseph Paul Ingram, and by her sister Nina Sue Gibson. She is survived by her brother, Joseph Michael “Mickey” Ingram (Glenda), and by her children Billy Donald “Donnie” Spurgeon, Jr., of Dalton, GA, Cynthia Spurgeon Agcaoili (Phillip) of Atlanta, GA, and Jaclyn Marie Jesperson of Sweetwater, TN. She is also survived by her grandsons, Alexander and Dillon, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
