Juanita Leach Elliott

Juanita Leach Elliott was born in Coal Creek, Tennessee on August 16, 1921 to Albert L. Leach and Lois Diggs Leach. She passed into Heaven on September 13, 2014 at the age of 93 years.  She was preceded in death by her husband of 71 years Christy R. Elliott, her parents, infant sister Margaret Louise Leach, son-in-law Ralph Wormsley and daughter-in-law Hazel Elliott.  She leaves behind to rejoice in her home going her son, Chris Elliott (John), and her daughter and son-in-law Pat and Ken Shrull. She also leaves 4 grandchildren, Clark and Jody Wormsley of Knoxville, Krista and Jeff Little of Clinton, Leigh Anne and Chris Maye of Jacksonville, AL., Crissy and John Wilson of Lake City, and 4 great grandsons, Jordan and Mary Katherine Wormsley, Logan Little, Parker Wormsley and Garrett Little, 2 great great grandchildren, Cooper and Rileigh Maye of Al.

She lived in Lake City all of her life until moving into an assisted living community in Clinton in 2007. She enjoyed watching her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren participate in sports and went to the games when she could.  If she was asked about what she enjoyed doing she would say, “I love to do everything!”, and she and Christy always told people, “we didn’t miss much”! Everyone they met became a friend for life as they loved people.

She was a member of Clear Branch Baptist Church in Lake City and enjoyed going to service when she felt good.  She belonged to the Order of the Eastern Star in Lake City and was a 50 year member. Of all the things she loved to do it was the spending time with her family that made her the happiest. Going places, vacations, birthdays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, anytime that her family was around her was the best times of her life.

She and her husband moved to Meadow View Assisted Living Community in 2007 and when he passed away in 2011, she continued to live there until her passing. A very special thank you to all the administration and staff at Meadow View for their care and concern for her. She was a person of great carrying but could be a little sassy if things didn’t go her way. A zest for life and her way of telling a story could keep you laughing for hours. She was totally deaf for the last two years but knew everything that went on at Meadow View and would not hesitate to tell you about it! Pam Forgerty and Rachel Parrott were her go-to people, mostly she would go to Pam to tell on Rachel for making her walk. Anyone she came into contact with had a hard time forgetting her and her smile.

A special thank you to the staff of Methodist Medical Center of Oak Ridge for their loving concern and care for Juanita.  Dr. Michael Hilton and the nursing staff of 4 West went above and beyond to make her last days comfortable.

Funeral services for Juanita will be Tuesday, September 16, 2014 at Hatmaker Funeral Home in Lake City (Rocky Top) with receiving friends from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. with the funeral to follow at 8:00 p.m. with Logan Little and Rev. Randy Norton officiating. Interment will be on Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. at Leach Cemetery in Lake City (Rocky Top). In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Clear Branch Baptist Church Youth Group, 1030 New Clear Branch Road, Rocky Top, Tennessee 37769.

Joe Asa Mariner, 90--soldier, scientist, musician, husband, and father--died peacefully at his home in Los Alamos, N.M., on June 10, 2014, surrounded by family.

 Mariner, who had lived in Los Alamos for 57 years, was born Sept. 3, 1923, in Jacksboro, Tenn., the son of George Washington Mariner and Nora Katherine Queener Mariner.  He grew up in Jacksboro, enjoying the company of his many cousins. He graduated from Jacksboro High School as valedictorian  in 1941.

 He was in the U.S. Army from 1943 to 1946, during World War II, serving  in New Guinea and the Philippines (on Luzon and Leyte). He spent more than 30 months in the South Pacific, working as a medical and administrative specialist. He was also assigned to Gen. Douglas MacArthur's Headquarters, and he worked in special intelligence throughout the Southwest Pacific.

 After the war, he studied at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, earning bachelor's and master's degrees in medical science, chemistry, and physics. In 1955, he earned a doctorate from Northwestern University in Chicago. Subsequently, he took graduate courses in radiochemistry, advanced analytical chemistry, and computer science at the University of New Mexico-Los Alamos.

 During his career, he worked in high-level scientific positions in Illinois, Tennessee, and New Mexico. A partial list  of the positions he held shows that he worked at U.S. Steel Corp. in Chicago; at Studebaker Corporation, Aircraft Engine Division, in Chicago; at the Crane Company in Chicago; at Cramet, Inc., in Chattanooga, Tenn.; at Los Alamos National Laboratory, where he was a staff member from 1958 through 1971; at the New Mexico Environmental Improvement Agency in Santa Fe, N.M.; at Bokum Resources Corporation in Santa Fe; at Assaigai Analytical Laboratory, Inc., in Albuquerque, N.M.; and at Eberline in Albuquerque. He also taught health physics-radiation protection, and he performed a radiation survey and environmental study at a reclamation site in New Jersey.

 Science, however, was only part of his world. He began studying guitar at age 7 and gave his first performance at age 10. While he was in the Army, he gave concerts in Australia, New Guinea, and the Philippines.

 In 1964, he was selected from among hundreds of applicants to attend the first U.S. master class of Spanish virtuoso classical guitarist Andres Segovia at Berkeley, Calif.

He played with Chet Atkins, Flatt & Scruggs,  Ferlin Husky, Roy Acuff, and other noted musicians from the Nashville area.

 He gave guitar lessons to many, many people in Los Alamos, sharing with them his passion for music. 

He was asked to do music for the movie "A  Gunfight," starring Johnny Cash and Kirk Douglas (a movie filmed at the J.W. Eaves Ranch near Santa Fe), and his sons James and Ron were selected for parts in the movie.

He played for the grand opening of Mesa Public Library in Los Alamos; at the Fogelson Library at the College of Santa Fe; and at Tomasita's, a well-known restaurant in Santa Fe. 

His family remembers him as a very special person--"a loving husband, father, and friend of many, known for his sharp intellect and wide-ranging interests as well as his kindness to everyone. He had a great love for music, reading, poetry, and, most of all, playing his guitar." 

He was also active in his community.  He was a lieutenant colonel in the Military Order of World Wars, Franklin E. Miles Chapter, in Los Alamos; he was a member of the local Republican Party, playing for the annual meeting for many years and entertaining at GOP meetings for then-U.S. Sen. Pete Domenici, State Rep. Jeannette Wallace, and others; he and his wife were active together in the Santa Fe Opera Auxiliary; and he frequently accompanied her at events of the Kiwanis Club of Los Alamos, where she is a long-time member. 

He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother, George Thomas Mariner, and his sister, Martha Louise (Lucy) Mariner Teague. 

He is survived by Mary Louise (Hunter) Mariner, his wife for 67 years. They renewed their vows at the United Church in Los Alamos a few months before his death. He is also survived by his sons, Joe Asa Mariner Jr., James Addison Mariner, and Ronald Maurice Mariner; five grandchildren--Michele (Mariner) Dawson, Joe Asa Mariner III, Erik D. Mariner, Malinda Ann (Mariner) Haughney, and Ian Addison Mariner; and seven  great grandchildren--Blake, Nick, Allie, and Zach Dawson, Trenten and Carson Asa Mariner, and Sebastian Mariner Haughney.

 Funeral services 2 p.m. Tuesday, June 17, First Baptist Church Jacksboro. Interment in Jacksboro Cemetery with Military Honors by Campbell Co. Honor Guard.  Joe Mariner Jr., James Mariner, Ron Mariner, Joe Mariner III, Erik Mariner, and Tom Mariner will serve as pallbearers. 

In lieu of flowers, friends may contribute to the First Baptist Church of Jacksboro, Tenn., or the Jacksboro Cemetery.
