Theodore "Ted" Diamond Verna
Theodore "Ted" Diamond Verna

Theodore “Ted” Diamond Verna was born on July 9, 1942 in Spokane, Washington and passed away Saturday, January 26, 2013 in San Jacinto, California where he resided.

Preceded in death by parents, Diamond Charles & Berniece Wanda Verna.  He leaves behind his most beloved brother, Gary.

Ted and his family moved to California as a young child, where he enjoyed playing with his younger brother, Gary in the nearby orange groves and learning to swim on the many beaches.  Being separated only by geography in adulthood, Ted remained a close and loving brother.

In Ted’s early adult years, after his stint in the Armed Services, he found he enjoyed art.  He became a talented, self-taught, artist, creating beautiful paintings and sculptures.  In the later decades of his life, he found a greater love, that being in his Christian faith.

He became a minister and founder of the Latter Reign Ministries in California, for which he unselfishly gave his time, labor, love and devotion to his church ministry and his congregation.

Ted’s love of God was resonant in all he did.  He opened his church, home and heart to all that were seeking spiritual nourishment and guidance.  In his Christian ministry, he knew no strangers and housed and fed the wayward and homeless sharing with them all his worldly goods.  Ted’s presence and absence on this earth will be felt by all that knew him.

 

Graveside Services & Interment will be held 2 p.m. Monday at Marlow Cemetery in White Oak with Rev. Mike Smith officiating.

Nell Powers Wright
Nell Powers Wright

Nell Powers Wright died Wednesday, December 26, 2012.   Mrs. Wright was a Campbell County school teacher for 29 years where she taught all elementary school grades at either College Hill from 1954 – 1963 or West LaFollette from 1963 – 1981.  During this time she taught over 1,000 students whom she loved dearly, keeping and cherishing every gift they ever gave her for Christmas or any other occasion.

She was born in Jacksboro, Tennessee on March 20, 1925 to Larry Carson Powers and Mary Agnes Clotfelter Powers, also a Campbell County teacher.  She was very close to her Dad, Larry, a civil engineer who taught her how to use all kinds of tools of his trade.  She followed him around to his construction sites any time she had an opportunity to help.  Larry worked all over the country on all types of civil engineering  projects such as the Smyrna, TN airport and the Newfound Gap road from Gatlinburg, TN to Cherokee, NC.  Nell’s paternal grandfather, William Barton Powers, was a medical doctor in Jacksboro and one of the founders of the Eagle Bluff Hotel in Jacksboro which was a famous mineral springs destination during the early 1900’s.  Her paternal grandmother, Florence Woodson’s father was one of the first settlers and earliest landowners of the Powell Valley.   

Nell loved her roller skates and bicycle and often rode her bicycle to classes at Central High School in Jacksboro.   During High school she rode her bicycle from Jacksboro to La Follette to visit a certain young man, Dudley Victor Wright, who worked at Riggs Drug store on the corner.   After graduating high school, she travelled to New York City by train with her clothes in a trunk.  She lived in the Martha Washington Hotel for women and worked as a model with the John Robert Powers agency.  She later returned to Tennessee to attend East Tennessee State University.

When Dudley returned from World War II, Nell and Dudley were married in 1945.  Dudley became a well respected community leader in LaFollette.  He was a manager with Home Beneficial Life Insurance Company, Deacon at First Baptist Church, and President of the Campbell Co. Shrine Club. 

Mrs. Wright worked as a bookkeeper for the LaFollette Utilities before receiving her first teaching position in 1954.  In 1958 she received a B.S. degree from Lincoln Memorial University.  She was a charter member of the Knoxville Chapter of Daughters of the Nile, an international fraternal organization that serves as a social and charitable organization and works to raise money for the Shiners’ Hospital for children.  Both Dudley and Nell enjoyed the Shrine organizations and loved to dance at the Shiners’ Balls in Knoxville.  Mrs. Wright was also a member of the East TN Education Association, National Education Association, and the First Baptist Church of LaFollette.

After her retirement from teaching in 1981 she spent much of her time with her grandchildren Jason and Suzanne in the summers taking them to Cumberland Falls State Park, Berea, KY, Silver Dollar City in Pigeon Forge, and to all the miniature golf games available.  Her grandchildren took the place of her school children in her retirement.

She lived in Jacksboro and LaFollette for 78 years before moving to Knoxville in 2002 to be near her daughter.  For the past 3 1/2 years, she was a resident of the Brakebill Nursing Home in Knoxville.

Mrs. Wright was preceded in death by her husband, parents, and her sister June Powers Bivens.  She is survived by her daughter Sharon Wright Cottrell and husband Brad, two grandchildren Jason Cottrell and wife Angela and Suzanne Cottrell Christensen and husband Jeff, four great grandchildren Katie, Kenzie, Jake, and Olivia Cottrell all of Knoxville, two nephews David and Eric Bivens of Mechanicsville, Virginia, and brother William Barton Powers of Limestone, Tennessee.

The family will receive friends from 12:00 noon to 2:00 pm on Sunday, January 6, 2013 at Cross-Smith Funeral Home in LaFollette with funeral services following at 2:00 pm in the Cross-Smith Funeral Home chapel with Dr. Duane Mills officiating.  Interment will be at Jacksboro Cemetery following the service.  Arrangements by Cross-Smith Funeral Home, LaFollette

Lee Jess Seargeant, Jr., M.D.
Lee Jess Seargeant, Jr. M.D.

Dr. Lee Jess Seargeant, Jr. went to be with his Lord and Savior on November 3, 2011, surrounded by his family.  He is survived by two children, Carolyn Miller (Ben) and Lee Seargeant (Brenda). He is the proud grandfather of Benjamin Miller IV (Amy), Rebecca Bullis, and Cherub Davenport (Scott) and the great grandfather to Adalyn Elizabeth Miller. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews.

 

“Doc”, as many referred to him,  was born on December 27, 1915, in LaFollette, TN. to Lee and Nell Seargeant. He was married to Ella June Evans Seargeant on November 1, 1947. She preceded him in death on June 13, 2008. He was also preceded in death by his brothers, George and Charles Seargeant and his sister, Virginia Seargeant Payne.

 

He graduated from LaFollette High School in 1934 and went on to Maryville College where he sang with the college orchestra. He then attended the University of Tennessee from 1935-36 and went on to graduate from UT College of Medicine in 1941. He completed an internship at the John Gaston Hospital in Memphis. After his internship, he served during World War II from 1942-1946.  He was commissioned as a First Lieutenant in the Medical Corp of the US Army Air Force as a military physician in the Pacific Theater where he attained the rank of Major. He was discharged in 1946 and opened an office in Caryville, TN. He eventually opened an office in downtown LaFollette and in 1955 built the office that still stands on Central Avenue. He was instrumental in the building of the LaFollette Community Hospital (now the LaFollette Medical Center) in 1963. In 1965, he chaired the building committee for the First United Methodist Church. He was a charter member of the American Academy of Family Practitioners, a member of the American Medical Association and the Campbell County Medical Society.  He served as medical director of the nursing home for 25 years and chief of staff at the hospital for many years. He also served on the hospital’s board of trustees and in other community organizations, such as the LaFollette Historical Society. He has been Grand Marshall of the Campbell County Christmas Parade twice, honored as 2006 Citizen of the Year by the Campbell County Rotary Club, honored by the LaFollette Medical Center on the occasion of his 75th birthday and had a park named after him on the corner of Tennessee Avenue and Beach Street. He practiced medicine in LaFollette for 64 years until he retired in 2005 at the age of 89. He was known around town for delivering many babies and treating people of all ages. He touched the lives of all those who met him and will be sadly missed by family, patients, and friends. He showed compassion and love to so many and when asked what his one wish would be, he stated that he wanted to leave this world in better shape than he found it. It appears he did just that.

 

The family wishes to thank the staff of the LaFollette Courts Assisted Living facility for the constant care, compassion, and love they displayed to Doc during his final years. 

 

The family will receive friends from 2-4 pm on Sunday, November 6th and the memorial service celebrating his life will follow at 4pm.  A graveside service will be held on Monday, November 7 at 10 am.  In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the LaFollette United Methodist Church or The Free Medical Clinic, 6209 Chapman Highway, Knoxville, TN, 37920.
