ANNA LEY INGRAHAM, passed at 2:20pm on Wednesday, 2/2/22. Born in Nashville, TN, she was raised Brentwood. Mrs. Huggins was Anna Ley’s Physical Education Teacher her Senior Year at Peabody Demonstration School. She allowed Anna Ley to teach the last class of the day every day so she could sit down and rest. That’s when Anna Ley knew that she definitely wanted to become a Physical Education Teacher. She attended and graduated from Peabody College with her Teaching Certificate. She then moved to Clovis, New Mexico where she taught Physical Education at Clovis Junior High School for three years. Dr. R. Kelly White called her and asked her to move back to Nashville to teach Physical Education at Belmont College. While teaching at Belmont College, she acquired her Masters Degree in Physical Education. She then moved to Houston to teach Physical Education at Houston Baptist College. She made the choice to return to Nashville when her mother became ill and taught Physical Education at Peabody College and then Vanderbilt University, where many athletes were thankful for her ability to tutor them as well as teach them Physical Education. Retiring from Vanderbilt, she stayed in Nashville as she had been a long-time member of Belmont Heights Baptist Church and then Brentwood Baptist Church. She was a long-time choir member, Sunday school teacher of both children and adults, as well as active in many church ministries. Her smile, joyous spirit and loving, peaceful demeanor brought joy and happiness to all that she knew. You could always count on her to be your prayer warrior and show encouragement.
