    Madge Dupuy Daugherty

    Madge Dupuy Daugherty, age 91, of Jacksboro, traveled to God's loving arms on February 9, 2016 after a bitter battle with cancer.  Preceded in death by parents, Nancy Litton and James Dupuy; sisters, Virginia Shown and Mildred Smith; half-brothers, James and George Lawson. 

    She will be remembered for her loving smile, kind words and unfailing optimism by her family and all that were lucky enough to know her.  Mrs. Daugherty was born in Demory, as Madge Dupuy, to her parents, Jim and Nancy Dupuy, a working family that struggled through the depression and war, and sacrificed much for each other.  She was an old school lady, who always dressed up to go out, even if only to the store, because that was what ladies were supposed to do.  But her most striking features were her quiet voice and smile that was always contagious to everyone around her.  She loved to tend her garden, her flowers, can vegetables, and care for her family.  She enjoyed the smell of freshly cut grass and the sound of birds in the spring.

    In her later years, Madge was always seen in Jacksboro and the surrounding area at the arm of her husband of 60 years, Lendon Daugherty, as they shopped, had breakfast together, and drove around the area.

    She is survived by her husband, Lendon, three daughters, Sandra Daugherty, Sheila Griffith and Gale Stanley; her son-in-law's, David Griffith and Bill Stanley

    Seven grandchildren, all of whom she cared for in their early years, teaching them compassion, love and an optimism for life based on simple virtues and care; grandsons Anthony Douglas, Devin Douglas, Jarod Griffith and Preston Griffith; granddaughters Whitney Issacs, Victoria Griffith and Tara Griffith.  She was blessed to hold her first great grandchild, Asher Issacs, before her passing.

    Her extended family includes, Lisa and Keith Cash, Sydney Cash, and Jennifer and Clint Smith.

    Madge was a stay at home mother, who cared deeply for her daughters, teaching them the values of education, hard work, and faith.  As she cared for her grandchildren, they all shared great adventures on the farm, learning about plants, animals and love for family.  But above all, she leaves every one with her strong faith and belief in God.  A member of Jacksboro First Baptist, her faith sustained her since being saved at age nine.  That faith was demonstrated quietly in the way she faced life's challenges and disappointments with a kind word, a smile and steadfast love that will be remembered by all that were lucky enough to know her.

    Charles C. Gross

    Charles C. Gross, age 87, ladies’ man, moon pie connoisseur, snazzy dresser and wicked Michigan Rummy opponent, went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, November 21, 2015. Charlie was born on June 17 1928 in Fonde, Kentucky to parents James Houston & Callie Ragle Gross. His early endeavors included a stint as a dishwasher in Oak Ridge, and a lumberjack for Dr. Sharp, as well as long and storied jobs at Cherokee Theatre and Drive in. On New Year’s Day of 1954, Charlie met the love of his life, the beautiful and stunning Bonnie Cate Powell. After a whirlwind romance, Catie made a honest man out of Charlie and the two traveled north to Monroe, Michigan.

    For the next quarter of a century, Charlie toiled night and day at Al’s Diner, Leakes Stamping and Ford Motor company while Bonnie raised their beautiful daughter (the apple of his eye) Debra Kay. As the years passed on, Charlie’s family grew and grew to include several grandchildren and great grandchildren that adored their Papa with unlimited love adoration.

    After finishing his career at Ford, Charlie and Catie moved back to LaFollette, TN to enjoy their retirement in the hills of East Tennessee among family and friends. Several of Charlie’s past-times in his Golden Years included maintaining a meticulous yard with his riding lawn mower that rivaled most national golf courses, trying to find anything combustible to “be burned”  in his infamous Burning Barrel tending one of the best fruit and vegetable gardens in the world year after year that he shared with his grandson, Justin the gift who continues to follow in his footsteps, firing bottle rockets into the night sky every Fourth of July while successfully never losing a finger of thumb, closely guarding his prized top secret recipe of fried potatoes and enjoying numerous hours of cowboy and Jackie Chan movies with his grandson, Michael. His favorite barber and manicurist was his granddaughter Brooke whom he loved to banter back and forth. He also enjoyed Johnny Cash, Hank Williams Sr., Daisies, Roses, Coffee, the occasional beer and relished in the fact that every day he got to wake up to his wife, Catie.

    Charlie is preceded in death by his father, James Houston Gross, his mother, Callie Ragle Gross, his brothers, Clyde, Walter, David, Everett and sisters, Ella Mae, Lula and Mattie. Charlie is survived by his amazing wife of 61 years, Bonnie Cate Gross, their amazing daughter, Debi and Thomas Timm, his grandchildren Michael Wiseman, Justin & Karen Wiseman, Brooke & Travis Bowman, his great grandchildren, Abigail, Justin, Tobias, Annabelle (affectionately known as CupCake) and Baby Sammy, Charlie also leaves behind a host of nieces, nephews, family members and  friends who will all miss him terribly.

    Mary Elizabeth (Waddell) Disney

    Mary Elizabeth (Waddell) Disney, 85, began her eternal life on November 4th, 2015. She was born to the late Claude and Maggie Jones Waddell in the Rains Grove Community of Norris Lake. When Norris Dam was being constructed, the family relocated to Robertsville, TN, and again to Caryville when their farm was needed for the building of Oak Ridge during WWII. She was, above all, a devoted wife to her late husband of 43 years, Clyde Disney, and a loving mother and grandmother. Some of her greatest pleasures in life included watching UT sports, especially Lady Vols basketball, visiting with friends, and enjoying old-fashioned country cooking. Mary was known for her caring, loving spirit. Rarely could anyone leave Mary’s home without some type of gift or treat. She was often seen running errands for relatives and friends or driving them to appointments and events. As a teenager, Mary worked alongside her father in the family coal business. Mary was always anxious to help any way she could, even driving the company coal trucks. Later, Mary attended business college. As a newlywed, Clyde’s construction controller job led them to move to places like New Orleans, Dallas, Mobile, and Virginia Beach. When they decided to start their family, Mary and Clyde moved back home to their family farm just north of Lake City. In 1955 Clyde opened an accounting practice in Clinton, TN. Mary worked in the practice as time allowed as they raised their two children. Mary loved working with young people and taught Sunday School, Training Union, and Bible School, and she was active in the women’s ministry while she attended Longfield Baptist Church. After her husband’s death, Mary moved to Clinton
