The song “Here’s to the Lady” speaks volumes to the rich legacy left behind by former parliamentarian Theresa Moxey-Ingraham, who not only put service above self over the last fifteen plus years in politics but fought with pride for the underprivileged and equal rights. It was standing room only at the free national movement’sMackeyy Street headquarters Wednesday as scores of members and supporters attended the memorial celebrating the life of – what they described as – a woman of integrity.
Free National Movement Leader, Prime Minister, Dr. the Hon Hubert Minnis reminisced on the significant contributions made by the former Free National Movement parliamentarian whom he hailed as a drum major for peace, justice, democracy. Prime Minister Minnis says “meritorious council member the late Hon. Theresa Moxey-Ingraham was a woman of boundless energy and charisma and you knew when Theresa was in the room she had a tremendous presence and she was always full of life. She loved her God, her family, and friends and she most certainly loved her country.
Also paying tribute was the first female elected to parliament and lifelong friend, the Hon. Janet Bostwick who walked through the political trenches with Moxey Ingraham throughout her political career. She described her political colleague as a smart, vibrant and dedicated member and supporter of the Free National Movement.
