Alma J. Ray, 79, passed away Thursday, November 22, 2018 at the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville after fighting a courageous battle. She went home to be with God. She was a faithful member of Bethel Baptist Church for many years, serving on the Usher Board and singing in the choir. Ms. Ray worked diligently for many years at Magnavox and Anchor Brush in Morristown for more than 25 years until her retirement in 2001. She enriched the lives of many families, as well, taking care of their homes and families. In her spare time she crocheted dollies and embroidered designs on pillow cases. She spent time working in her word search books. Oh, how she loved to watch wrestling on Monday and Thursday nights. She was thrilled when she met some of the wrestlers in person and collected wrestling memorabilia. She loved watching Westerns, especially “Laramie” and “Wagon Train.”
The family will receive friends 5 – 6 p.m., Tuesday, November 27 at Bethel Baptist Church, Cherokee Drive, prior to the service at 6 p.m. Graveside services will be 11 a.m., Wednesday, November 28 at Hamblen Memory Gardens.
