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.

Janice Slater Maynard

Janice Slater Maynard, formerly of LaFollette, died February 16, 2014 at the home of her son Steven Maynard in the great state of Kentucky.

To borrow the gentle words of Keats, Janice Maynard's life was "a thing of beauty and a joy forever," it goes without saying that, "it will never pass into nothingness".  Janice's soul yielded peacefully to a higher calling.  As a devout Christian, mother and wife of the late Walter Maynard,  she lived her life driven by a deep love for her family and faith.

She will be remembered by her affinity for literature, cooking and the world of nature. She looked to Norris Lake as a source of solace and repose alongside her late husband and avid fisherman, Walter Maynard.

She was the daughter of the late Oliver and Hattie (Lawson) Slater.  She was preceded in death by her husband Walter and siblings Billy Slater, Hubert Slater, Ernestine Mounts, Rudolph Slater and Randolph Slater.  

She is survived by her brother, JD Slater and sister, Noka (Burl) Olaker. She is leaving a very large hole in the hearts of her three children, Patricia (Robert) Chambers, Steven(Leslie) Maynard and David Neal (Sandra) Maynard.  She was loved and admired by her nine grandchildren, Robert Todd (Jane) Chambers, Mark (Kimberly) Chambers, 

Laura Beth (Jim) Galloway, Steven (April) Chambers, Cory (Rachel) Maynard, Patricia (Cole) Bennett, Sara Maynard, Adair Maynard, Danielle Maynard and Nicholas Maynard.  

She was blessed with fifteen great grandchildren, Katie(Justin) Gagel, Amanda Chambers, Michael Chambers, Zach Chambers, Andrew Chambers, Brooke Galloway, Joseph Galloway, Annie Galloway, Jack Galloway, Stevie Chambers, Scout Chambers, Zoe Maynard, Finnegan Maynard, Piper Bennett and Landon Bennett.  She is also leaving many nieces and nephews that she loved.

She was a champion of causes.  She led the struggle to pave the roads, have telephone service and a school kitchen to feed the children of her very rural area.  She was a teacher, cashier and Director of Admissions for the UMWA Hospital in South Williamson, Kentucky. It later became the Appalachian Regional Hospital.  She retired after 40 years of service.

Funeral services will be held at Cross Smith Funeral Home in LaFollettte, TN., Saturday, February 22. Visitation will be at 10:30 with services at 11:00.
