Ingrid E. Williams
1971 – 2016
Ingrid Elaine Williams, beloved wife of Monty Williams, devoted mother to Lael, Faith, Janna, Elijah & Micah, and cherished friend to all, went home to be with the Lord in Edmond, Oklahoma on February 10, 2016 at the age of 44. A Celebration of Life service will be held on February 18 at 2 p.m. at Crossings Community Church in Oklahoma City.
Ingrid was born on April 2, 1971 and was the treasured daughter of James and Veda Mitchell Lacy. While attending the University of Notre Dame and competing in track and field, she and Monty started their lifelong partnership and commitment to serve. Blessed with 20 years of marriage, their mutual love and commitment to Christ and to one another has built a foundation ensuring that their children will continue to have many opportunities to grow in wisdom, in stature, and in favor with both God and man.
Ingrid was a rock and inspiration to everyone she touched, often writing notes of encouragement and inspiring scripture verses to others. As the wife of an NBA player and coach she inspired many beyond her immediate family, quietly sharing her many gifts with anyone in need. She loved to read her bible and encouraged others to do the same. Ingrid and Monty co-authored a book Look Again 52 as a guide to explore scripture through the year. Ingrid enjoyed organizing “Sanctuary” retreats for family & friends across the United States. Her family attended Faith Bible Church in Oklahoma City.
Ingrid was preceded in death by her brother William Lacy and is survived by her husband and children, parents and siblings James and Renee Lacy and Mark Doss. She also leaves behind numerous loving relatives and friends. Ingrid left us a legacy of strength, wisdom, loving kindness & generosity. Her unfailing example of a beautiful life well lived will enrich our hearts forever.
The family wishes to thank all of those whose love, comfort & prayers have helped support them through this time. For more information about Ingrid’s life and legacy or to leave online condolences, go to www.randytheme.dev
