Helen Foust Morton

AIKEN, SC - The family of Helen Foust Morton wished her farewell on May 15, 2016. Helen was welcomed into the world by Kelly and Chloe Foust on December 28, 1930 in a place formerly called Lake City, TN, a coal mining community known for hard-working and proud people. Helen had six siblings: Charles “Clyde” and John (of Rocky Top), Louise Harnett (of Aiken, SC), Janet Adkins (of Statesville, NC), the late James “Jimmy” and Faye Adkins (of Rocky Top).
Helen was a high school cheerleader who married a football player from a rival school in June of 1946. Together, she and Leland “L. R.” Morton tended to a life and an amazing garden that said more about them than words ever could. Between the pole beans and tomatoes, they ushered three children into the world, Richard of Columbia, SC, and Pam Baxley and Sally Ferriter (Mark) of Aiken, SC.
In 1960, the family migrated to Aiken, SC where Leland was employed by Owens Corning and Helen began a thirty year career as an office manager and bookkeeper. Her humble coal mining town sense of pride and hard work did not go unnoticed. Twenty years after retirement, her last employer, Hoyt Grace, still sent Helen what she referred to as her annual Christmas bonus.
In 2005, Helen lost her football player. Though no less lovely, the garden they tended together shrank, but the family continued to grow. Helen is loved and also survived by four grandchildren to whom Helen was affectionately known as “Dear” (Chrissey Miller, Reed Morton, Helen Faulk, and Leland Ferriter), and five great-grand children (Blair and Gracey Sims, Patrick and Maggie Morton, and Elloree Helen Faulk).
Visitation will be held on Saturday May 21, 11:00 A.M. followed by a graveside service at Island Ford Baptist with Rev. Dr. George H. Grant II officiating. In lieu of flowers, please consider contributions to Island Ford Baptist Church, c/o Rex Deboe, 154 Shelby St., Rocky Top, TN 37769.

After graduating from Lake City High School in 1953, he joined the United States Army and served in the 101st Airborne during the time of the Korean War.  Upon returning from the Army he married his high school sweetheart, and love of his life, Ms. Janet Lee Harris.  
He and Jan left immediately for Cleveland, TN where he attended Lee University for 2 years before moving to Johnson City, TN to attend East Tennessee State University. There he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in English and History and earned his Teaching Certification.

    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.

    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.

    In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make donation to Lone Pine Museum of Western Film History in Lone Pine, California. Charlie always had an amazing amount of respect and appreciation for the history and careers of some of his favorite heroes including John Wayne, Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, Hopalong Cassidy and Allan Rocky Lane. The family would also like to thank the entire staff of Amedisys Hospice, NHC and Park West Hospital for their tireless and compassionate care over the past several years.

    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.
