Mrs. Tingle was born April 19, 1939, in Houston County to the late Jim Henry and Willie Mae Brackin Buckhalt. Grace loved her family immensely. She prayed often and had a faith in Christ and positive outlook that was unmatched. She encouraged those around her to forgive, love, take care of each other, and wanted everyone to succeed in life. She was a mother and grandmother figure to many people and was affectionately known as “GiGi”. In her final hours, she called her family to her bedside and encouraged them one by one. Even during her closing moments on earth, she placed her family first. Grace will be greatly missed by all, and she will truly be irreplaceable.
Survivors include her children: Kim Tingle Carroll (David), Dwain Tingle (Joecelyn), and Billy Tingle (Elaine); grandchildren: Trenton Sauls (Susan), Tasha Bell (Shane), Fran McCollough (Ronnie), Marshall Carroll (Jennifer), Hannah Daniels (Kenneth), John William Carroll (Kaylee), and Nicholas Paul Tingle; great grandchildren: Dawson Daniels, Ella Grace Daniels, Corey Pridgen, Josh Pridgen, Kayla Pridgen, and Austin Bell; great-great grandchildren: Dawson, Levi, Gunner, and River Pridgen; brothers: Willett Buckhalt (Barbara), and James Buckhalt (Jan); numerous nieces, nephews and other extended family and friends.
The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the members of the Slocomb Fire and Rescue Squad and to Kindred Hospice for the love and care they provided to Grace during her illness.
