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.

Visitation will be 11:00-1:00 pm Monday November 23, 2015 in Martin Wilson Funeral Home with funeral service to follow with Chaplin Clay officiating, Interment after service in Indian Creek cemetery.

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, where she joined New Salem Baptist Church. There Mary made many new loving and supportive friendships. Mary loved to garden, was known to have a green thumb, and could make almost anything grow. In addition to her parents, Mary is preceded in death by husband Clyde W. Disney; brothers and sisters-in-law Harry and Christine Waddell, Fred and Lavergne Waddell; sisters and brothers-in-law Naomi and Ernest Gamble, Ruby and Kenneth McCarter; brother-in-law James Disney; brother-in-law and sister-in-law Bill and Edna Mae Hatmaker; sister-in-law Vanda Lee Disney; brother-in-law Arnold Disney; brother-in-law James Webb. She is survived by daughter Debbie McDowell and her husband Ron McDowell; son Gary Disney and his wife Kim Disney; granddaughter Maggie Martin and her husband Ray Martin; grandson Nathan McDowell; grandson Grant Disney; granddaughter Hope Disney; great grandson Linus Martin; great granddaughter Veda Martin; sisters-in-law Roma Disney, Betty Disney, and Jean Webb; several nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, and a host of other relatives and friends. The family wishes to offer their sincere thanks to all of Mary's caregivers, including special caregiver and friend Vicki Donald, Evie Young, the staff at Meadowview Assisted Living, especially Pat Forgety and Rachel Parrott, the staff at Shannondale and her long-time physician Dr. Michael Bernard. Receiving of Friends is to be held at Hatmaker Funeral Home in Lake City (Rocky Top) on Nov. 6th from 6-8 pm.The funeral service will take place following the visitation at 8 with Rev. Donnie Disney officiating. Burial service will be at 11 am on Nov. 7th at Norris Memorial Gardens.

Alicia Matilda Parks

Alicia Matilda Parks, beloved daughter of Deana and Steve Parks, was born on November 19, 1974 in Olney, Maryland.  She grew up in Montgomery County and attended Magruder High School.  She received a B.A. from Wooster College in Ohio and a Masters of Theology from Boston University.  In 2014, she completed a course in Health and Nutrition which certified her to counsel clients as a health coach.  Her marriage to Clay Daetwyler ended in divorce.

While in high school, she became interested in German culture, and struggled to master the language.  While studying in Germany during her college years, one of her professors in Tubingen told her, “You butcher my language with great fluency.”  She loved that.

She always argued that being a pacifist never means being passive.  Her first job after college was working for a Peace organization.  Nonviolence was her creed and cooperation was her passion. She worked on a political campaign in Portland, Maine and fell in love with the area.  She called Portland head Beach the “Navel of the Universe.”

Small children delighted Alicia, and she was always ready to meet them on their level.  For two years she was a devoted nanny to two young children who remained a source of love in her life.  At neighborhood gatherings, Alicia always made sure the little ones were engaged in conversation and play.  Her own free spirit and curiosity captured children’s imagination as well as adults’.

In recent years, Alicia worked as a nutritional supplement expert and advisor at the Whole Foods Market in Tenleytown.  Her favorite part of the job was customer service, because she loved helping people with their problems … and she loved bossing people around.  She came home most days with a story about some cute thing a child had done or said.  On her daily walks around the Tenleytown neighborhood, she relished her talks with people whom she met along the way. Likewise on her Meredith Drive walks, she liked talking and laughing with neighbors.   Alicia was known for her laugh.

Alicia’s interests ranged widely.  She loved exploring ideas.  She always had a book on history, science or linguistics going.  She liked to read things that made her laugh, including cartoons and comic strips.  She had a habit of pushing comic strips into people’s faces and saying, “Read this.” Or maybe it would be an informative article, commenting “You should know this!”

Alicia wrote too.  She was a frequent contributor to two blogs, one on linguistics and one on religion.  She sometimes chimed in on her father’s email forum.  Her comments were always well reasoned and often persuasive. She wrote several short stories, one of which was published.

Food was of supreme importance to Alicia.  She was a creative cook and loved to feed people. Her culinary experiments were ambitious and varied, and the results ranged from awful to irresistible; more often irresistible, because she understood spices, flavors, and textures. Many tried but failed to duplicate her irresistible soups.

Alicia was a good friend willing to pitch in and help whenever she was needed.

She was a beautiful spirit whose journey is ongoing and lives with us still.

Visitation: 1:30 PM to 2:00 PM, Sunday, September 6, 2015 at the Hatmaker Funeral Home in Lake City, TN.

Celebration of Life Service: 2:00 PM, Sunday, September 6, 2015 in the Hatmaker Funeral Home Chapel in Lake City, TN.
