Alma J. Ray

by DFH Inc. on 11/23/18

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.”

She went home to be reunited with her mother, Daisy; daughter, Tracy; and brothers, Felix and Jimmy. She leaves to cherish her memory her daughters, Claudia Thaxton and Bridgit Ray; devoted son-in-law, Haywood; grandchildren, Kevin, Alyssa, Christine, and Rebekah; great-grandchildren, Victoria, Gianna, Kynda, and Deidra; great-great-grandchildren, Adalynn Grace and Jacoby; and a host of faithful relatives.

The family wishes to thank the doctors and nurse practitioners at HealthStar Physicians and the staff at Morristown Dialysis, whom she called her second family. We express our deep appreciation to the Morristown EMS team and ETHRA.

The family wishes to thank everyone for the kindness shown to them in their time of bereavement.

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.

We are so sorry for your loss and our thoughts and prayers go out to the family. I worked with Alma for several years at Magnavox we were always talking about our kids and what they were doing. I know she will be greatly missed by all who knew her. May God bless you all is our prayer.
