He built a home for her and their three daughters, Gale, Sandra, and Sheila, on a farm in Pinecrest, where he cleared the land by hand, built their house, and raised a large garden with special pride in his melons that he shared with his neighbors and those he felt deserved them.  He worked the farm with care, believing the land was God's creation and should be treated with reverence, collecting leaves in the fall to till into the garden, clearing weeds in the evening and hand watering the plants in the morning.  Upon his retirement, he planted fruit orchards and nut trees that still bear fruit to the delight of the farms squirrels today.  His work ethic and straightforward manner taught his children the benefits of hard work, honesty, and respect for family. Lendon was a strong willed man, with a distinctive voice, a wry sense of humor, and a warm smile.  In the last years of his life, he was frequently seen having breakfast at McDonalds or Burger King and visiting the grave of his beloved Madge, who preceded him to heaven this month two years ago. 

He is survived by his

Reba Octava “Tava” Jones

Reba Octava “Tava” Jones, age 82 born May 20, 1935 and passed Monday, January 8, 2018.  Like the mighty oak tree, Tava’s life spanned many generations and bore witness to many miracles small and large.  She attributed her strength to her deep roots that lay both Kentucky and Tennessee soil, and were nourished by her immense faith of God.

By her actions her legacy has and will stand the test of time, it’s long shadow has touched so many lives.  She did not spend her life accumulating the wealth of this world, only to be locked away in a box.  Her treasure was clearly her faith, her children and extended family and friends.  And she was not a bit bashful about telling anyone who would listen how wonderful her children are, or how great God is.

Tava is preceded in death by first husband Ray Henegar and second husband Harvey Jones; son David Henegar; grandsons Trinity Henegar and Aiden Johnson.

Tava is survived by sons Kenneth Henegar, wife Shirley of Williamsburg, Kentucky; Bill Henegar & wife Teresa of LaFollette, Ricky Henegar of New Tazewell, Lawrence Henegar & wife Denise of Clinton, Jimmy Henegar

& wife Millie of Jacksboro, Eddie Henegar & wife Debbie of LaFollette; daughters Robin Adkins & husband Roger of Jacksboro, Reba Taylor & husband Arvil of LaFollette; brother Lawrence Ball & wife Thelma of South Carolina; sisters Barbara Huff of Jacksboro and Norma Smith of LaFollette; 22 grandchildren, 41 great grandchildren, and 3 great-great grandchildren.

She could at times, be a woman of few words, because foolishness rarely came from her lips.  If she liked you, it was a true honor and if you were in the wrong, she had that motherly way of setting you straight without mixing words.  She was truly a woman of compassion and conviction and practiced that in her daily life.  She cherished the simple things like a pretty day or a child’s laughter Tava understood and lived God’s commandment to love your brother.

Her clear love for life, like that oak, stands conspicuous and unwavering and will long serve as a constant memorial to her children and family and all who knew her.  She cherished life and lived it fully, with no regrets.  Never dwelling on what she had not, but forever giving thanks for what she had.  She would quickly tell you she was blessed, and she has blessed all of those who were fortunate enough to have had her touch our lives. 

Visitation will be 5-7 PM Wednesday, January 10, 2018 at Grace Baptist Church followed by funeral service at

7 PM with Rev. Lawrence Henegar officiating.  Friends and family will meet 10:30 AM Thursday, January 11, 2018 at the Wolf Creek Cemetery for the interment.

Mary Marie Anderson

Mary Marie Anderson of Cherry Bottom in Caryville, went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, November 28, 2017 just 22 days shy of her 95th birthday.

Born in Coal Creek, TN she was the oldest of three children. Dedicated to her family she quit school at the age of 15 to help her mother run the family farm after her father passed. Marie continued to be a hard worker for the rest of her life, and simply did not like sitting idle. After her daughter began school she went to work at Imperial Reading as a seamstress and did this work for 40 years. When the last factory she worked in closed she began to work at the Department of Human Services in Campbell County. There she was a file clerk until the age of 87 when her health no longer permitted her to work. Also, dissatisfied with the fact that she never completed her high school degree she decided to return to school and at the age of 72 obtained her GED.

A faithful Christian and member of Cherry Bottom Baptist Church, she was a Sunday school teacher for many years. She loved her church family and appreciated all the support they gave her throughout her life.

Marie had many hobbies. She loved to quilt, garden, craft, do word search puzzles, and color. Also, she loved to work and take care of her home and family. In recent years her health did not permit her to do much around the house, but to quote Marie, “If I could walk I would be…” Fill in that blank with any chore or undesirable activity, such as dusting. Tasks that she would have been happy to complete so that the work “got done.”

Marie also loved to socialize and would become friends with anyone she met. All who knew her would say that she was fun loving, outgoing, strong willed, energetic, and especially feisty. She was a woman who knew her mind and was known to “tell it like it is,” a trait that often made those who knew her laugh because of her fearless nature.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Glenn Anderson; parents, Thomas and Beulah Leach; brother, J.T. Leach and wife Anna; sister, Rubye Mae Hatmaker and husband Arthur; in-laws, Conley and Odessie Anderson; and brother-in-law, David Ralph Anderson and wife Josephine.

She is survived by her daughter, Marilyn Kaye Presley and husband Tom; granddaughter, Heather Presley; grandson, Thomas Presley and wife Tatum of Kingsport; great-grandbabies, Kara and Emma Presley, of Kingsport; and several nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends who will all mourn her loss. The family would also like to extend a special thank you to her nieces Carolyn Lay and Ellen Cannon who helped care for their Aunt Marie, the Clinch River Home Health staff and Aspire who provided such excellent care for her through recent years, and Serita Evans who brought a smile to her face every week.

Marie was a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, and friend. She always made those around her feel loved and more specifically made them laugh. Her absence leaves a huge hole in the lives of all who knew her, but also tremendous joy for having known such an amazing and spunky woman.

The Receiving of Family and Friends will be held on Sunday, December 3, 2017 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Hatmaker Funeral Home.

The Funeral Service will be held on Sunday, December 3, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. in the Hatmaker Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Tom Byrge officiating.

Family and Friends will meet on Monday, December 4, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. at the Bakers Forge Cemetery in LaFollette for Mrs. Anderson’s graveside service.

Leslie Craig


October 21, 1946 - October 27, 2017
Lebanon, Pennsylvania
Leslie Craig, 71, passed away Friday, October 27, 2017, at Hershey Medical Center. Born in LaFollette, TN on October 21, 1946, he was the son of the late Clayton L. and Bernice R. Smith Craig. Les was the husband of Mary Ann Shostek Craig, whom he married on June 6, 1998. He was preceded in death by his first wife, Maria Anna Grijsbach Craig, who passed on November 9, 1991.
Les graduated from LaFollette High School and earned a BA in Business from Saint Leo Business College in 1983. He proudly served in the United States Army for 31 years and during his service was stationed in the U.S., Germany, the Netherlands, France, and Korea. He was one of the first Warrant Officers to attain the rank of Chief Warrant Officer 5. After retiring from active duty, he worked for 11 years in Logistics at the National Ground Intelligence Center in Charlottesville, VA, and at Fort Detrick in Frederick, MD.
Les was a member of Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church in Cornwall, where he served on the parish council. He volunteered at the Lebanon VA Medical Center and sponsored a child through Children International. He was a member of the Army Quartermaster Foundation, Military Officer's Association of America, The American Legion, Amvets Post 559, and Annville VFW 8023.
Les was a gentle, thoughtful man who loved his family dearly. He raised his sons, Danny and Tim, to be decent, honest, and hard-working men. Danny looked to him as his hero and hopes to be half the man that he was. Tim will always remember him not only as a dad, but as his buddy. He always loved to tell jokes (and laugh while telling them) and always had interesting stories of his past to share. Les enjoyed playing golf, billiards, racquetball, tennis, cards, and games with his family and friends. He also enjoyed sitting on his porch, where he would chat with his neighbors and watch the birds come and go.
Les will be deeply missed by his wife, Mary Ann; sons, Daniel C., husband of Suzanne Craig of Stephens City, VA and Timothy Craig of Centreville, VA; grandchildren, Delia, Taylor, Lauren, Marisa, Andrea, Anna, Nicholas, Megan and Wesley; great-granddaughter, Margo. Les is also survived by his stepson, Robert E. Shostek, husband of Melissa of Windber, PA; stepdaughters, Charlotte A., wife of Eric Ecklund of Johnstown, and M. Denise Templeton of Cedar Rapids, IA. He is also survived by his brother, Dwight Craig of Morristown, TN; sisters, Josephine, wife of William Causseaux of Crawfordville, FL, Mildred, wife of Donald Davis of Oak Ridge, TN, Marjorie, wife of James Robbins of LaFollette, TN, and Janice Craig of LaFollette, TN; sister-in-law, Margaret Craig of Virginia Beach, VA; brothers-in-law, Christ, Hans, and Ed Grijsbach of the Netherlands; as well as many beloved nephews, nieces, aunts, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his brothers, Devaughn and Gene Craig; and grandson, Robert E. Shostek, III.
Family and friends are respectfully invited to attend the Mass of Christian Burial for Les on Wednesday, November 1, 2017, at 11a.m. at the Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church, 2596 Cornwall Road, Cornwall. Friends will be received at the church on Wednesday from 10 to 11 a.m. Les will be buried in Arlington National Cemetery where full military honors will be accorded. In lieu of flowers, memorial remembrances may be made in his memory to Sacred Heart Debt Reduction Fund. For information, please call 717-272-4634 or to submit an online condolence, please visit
