Charles Henry Stanley

Charles Henry Stanley (90) born June 24, 1924, or as he put it “the year the cherry tree blew down” in Wise, Virginia, passed away on November 6th, 2014 after  an entrenched battle against old age, at Cumberland View in Jacksboro, Tennessee.  He was preceded in death by his parents, William and Estelle Stanley of Wise Virginia, his sisters, Will (Tucson, AZ), Rita (Dale City, VA), Katherine (San Diego, CA), and his oldest daughter Paula of Jacksboro, TN.  Growing up in the coal fields of southwest Virginia, Charles attended school and held various jobs during the depression to help support his family until he was drafted in 1943 to join 1.2 million of his closest friends in a visit to Europe as part of the 16th Armored Division of Patton’s Third Army.  At the end of the war, he requisitioned a jeep and proceeded to tour southern France, Germany and Austria before disembarking to return to the United States and an honorable discharge.  His stories of his last three weeks in Europe were the subject of pride and embellishment by Charles for years, to the fond memories and amusement of his friends and family, and remain so today. 

Upon returning home to Wise in 1946, he awoke to see a young woman in a red dress standing outside the beauty shop across the street and never let her out of his sight for 68 years.  He and his wife, Aldeane, had three children they raised in a home filled with care, love, books and humor.  In spite of the challenges and trials that life puts before everyone, he was a role model of tolerance and support for the entire family, and his last words were of his love for Aldeane.  He led a Christian life by example.

Charles supported his family as a coal miner in various mines in Virginia and became a federal mine inspector for the Mine Safety and Health Administration in 1969, moving to the Jellico field office and he and the family have lived in Jacksboro, TN since that time.  He eventually became the supervisor of the Jellico field office until his retirement.  After retirement, he proceeded to stay active, travelling with Aldeane, remodeling every room in their home twice, and teaching his grandchildren bad habits.  He also had a love of genealogy and history; tracing his ancestry back to Robert the Bruce, and was a walking history of coal mining and families of this region.  He was a regular breakfast club member at Hardee’s and missed going when his condition would no longer allow him to make the trip.

Charles is survived by his wife Aldeane, daughter Elizabeth Lamb and husband James Lamb, and son Bill and wife Gale Stanley.  He has five grandchildren, Manderley Swain, Travis Stanley, Ronnie Byrd, Anthony Douglas and Devin Douglas, five great grandchildren, and three great great grandchildren.

The family wishes to express their deepest gratitude to the ladies of the Sun Valley Terrace at Cumberland Nursing Home for their care and kindness; and to the staff of the 2nd floor of Tennova LaFollette for their support and care of Charles and his family.  All of you helped him to make this journey with grace and dignity.

Emma Wier Cooper

Emma Wier Cooper, passed away on October 11, 2014 at Golden Living Nursing Home in Clinton, Tn.  Emma and her twin Rita were born in LaFollette on March 14, 1947.

She and her family lived in Jacksboro until 1955 and then moved to Oak Ridge. They continued to live in both towns with her father working at Oak Ridge Utility District in Oak Ridge and running and working a large farm in  Jacksboro. She stayed in Oak Ridge with her husband Ralph B. Cooper Sr. after her parents retired back to Jacksboro in 1969.

Emma is preceded in death by her husband Ralph B. Cooper Sr.: her loving parents, Charley and Lucille Hatmaker Wier; brother, Robert Wier (Betty); sister, Marian Wier  Miracle (Larry); brother, Sambo Wier (JoAnne); twin sister, Rita Bell Wier Moulas; nephews, Sammy Wier Jr., Charley Wier & Jerry Wier; niece, Lucille Poland Smith Ellis.

She is survived by her only son Ralph B. Cooper Jr. of Tennessee, 2 granddaughters, her sister, Dianne Redmon (Grover) of Jacksboro; sister, Kathy Wier Mercier(Roger) of Bristol, RI; brother, Bill Wier (Mary) of Chattanooga, Tn.; brother, Ronnie Wier (Carmen) of Puerto Rico, 16 nieces and nephews and a close friend Dot Hillard of Oak Ridge.

Emma spent most of her life in Oak Ridge next door or with her twin sister Rita . They were always very close.  They shared their love of dogs and cats and had several. They rode motorcycles, went fishing & boating, did outdoor gardening and Emma did upholstery, mostly in earlier years. In the late 80's, she dedicated her life to caring for her mother, Lucille Wier, when she became ill with Alzheimer disease. The 24 hour care at Emma's home was over a period of 3 years and was the best care anyone could have ever received. She was so dedicated to her mother and recently, before her death, said that it was the best part of her whole life.  Emma could always cook like her mom and make all her desserts taste "just like moms".  She had been at the Golden Living Nursing Home in Clinton since the spring of this year and lived her last days there being loved for her generous ways and funny sense of humor.

Her twin, Rita, also went to the nursing home in the spring after a serious illness and stay at Oak Ridge Methodist Medical Center. She continued to be in and out of the hospital, but could not recover from her illness and passed away May 5, 2014.

Before the sisters went to the nursing home, their older sister, Dianne Redmon and her husband, retired to Jacksboro from Lowell, IN. Dianne became their sister, mother and caregiver. They were semi-independent at the beginning, but became less able.  Dianne was their housekeeper, shopper, accountant, taxi driver, nurse, and in general loved them above and beyond.

Emma was also known as Emily Anne.  Later in life, she found out that her birth certificate listed her name like that.  She then chose to go by Emily Anne.  Her parents had always told her that her name was Emma Nell.  As far as her family and childhood friends were concerned, she was Emma Nell.

The family is inviting all of her friends and all who loved her to a Memorial Service being held 7 PM to 9 PM  Saturday, November 8, 2014 at Cross-Smith Funeral Home, 300 E. Central Ave., LaFollette, Tn.  Rev. John Wiseman will be officiating.
