Dorothy Jean Stanley Ingraham, 43, affectionately known as “Jeannie”, went home to our Lord on Sunday, September 22nd, 2013 in San Antonio, TX. Jeannie was born on October 24th, 1969 in Manassas, Virginia to Emma and Henry Stanley, Sr.

Jeannie grew up in Manassas Park, Virginia and graduated from Manassas Park High School. Before marriage and moving to Texas with her husband, Jeannie worked in the ER at Prince William Hospital in Manassas, Virginia.
A recent tradition for Jeannie and her family has been to host military service personnel at their home on Thanksgiving. This Thanksgiving, Richard and sons will be visiting Jeannie's family in Virginia where there will be a memorial service for her Virginia family and friends.

Jeannie was a faithful servant of the Lord with a heart of gold. She was a beloved daughter, a reverent wife, a passionate mother, a loyal friend, and a spiritual prayer warrior. We take comfort in knowing that today she is in Our Father’s hands in Paradise. She has “fought the good fight and run the good race”. We celebrate in the knowledge that Jeannie has now heard the Lord tell her, “Well done, my good and faithful servant”, and we look forward to the day when we shall be together with Jeannie again.
One of Jeannie's Favorite Bible Verses:
Jermiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you, and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
To have a child, is to have your heart walk among the earth.
There is no love like a mothers love.
