Tommy Lee B. Infinger



Tommy Lee Bacon Infinger, 77, passed away on Thursday, July 13, 2017 at Caldwell Hospice of Lenoir. She was born in Rocky Mount, NC on October 13, 1939 to the late Curtis Bacon and Marguerite Williams Bacon.

In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her sons, Tray and Curtis White and her grandson, Tyler Ingram. Tommy Lee is survived by her daughter, Lee Ann White Soots and husband, Steve; sister, Martha Bacon Bradley and husband, Murray; daughter-in-law Ann White; grandchildren, Jonathan Ingram and wife, Stacy; Lauren White; Kimberly White; Laura Lewis; Hailey White; Kyle Miller; Katie Shatley and husband, Andrew; Jake Soots; great-grandchildren, Caiden and Sadee Ingram and Heather Prince; nieces, Maggie Bacon Bradley; Kate Stone; and nephews, Carter and Will Bradley.

Tommy Lee was a proud member of the Summerville High School Class of 1957 and continued life-long relationships with many of her classmates. She completed her education at Palmer Business College. She served the citizens of Summerville for many years as Administrative Assistant to Jerry Blackwell in the Engineering Department at Town Hall. Tommy Lee was instrumental in providing the first family tree in the archives file of Summerville. She is the 7th generation granddaughter of Michael Bacon who received the property that covered the Bacon’s Bridge on March 24, 1697, on which the newly dedicated Historical Marker now stands.

The greatest joy in her life was the love for her family near and far . . . those of the same blood and those she gathered along her life’s journey. She enjoyed planting and tending to her flower gardens and collecting antiques. She entertained us all with her remarkable talent and skills as a pianist. The keys were simply an extension of her fingers and the piano a part of her soul. In the last few years of her life, she tried to instill some of that passion and love of music to her great granddaughters.

A celebration of Tommy Lee’s life will be held on Saturday, July 22, 2017 at Parks Funeral Home Chapel in Summerville at 3:30 pm with Pastor Jerry Reaves officiating. The family will receive friends from 2:00 to 3:30 pm with a service to follow.

We would like to express our heartfelt thanks for the genuine love and care given to Tommy Lee and her family over the past several years by the staff of Caldwell Hospice of Lenoir. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to Caldwell Hospice, 902 Kirkwood Street, Lenoir, NC 28645.
