He was baptized as a member of Atlas Church of Christ in Greenhill, AL. He was an avid fisherman, lover of NASCAR, loyal University of Alabama fan, and ceaseless champion of his children.

He will forever be loved and cherished by his 3 Children;

Longtime Companion and best friend, Sharon Evans.

Troy was a man who always believed he could be better no matter how good he was, whether it was a better father, a better brother, a better friend, or a better man. He gave without end, never expecting anything in return, never boasting about what he bave, and anyone who met him was a benefactor of his generosity and kindness. He will be remembered with a gentle smile and an easy laugh. It is in this spirit that his children would ask you to honor him by doing a random act of kindness in his name.

Throughout his battle with cancer, Troy was touched by watching children so much smaller than he undergo the same treatments ant tests at Vanderbilt. He would remind us "if they can di it, I can," and we were all strengthened by his resolve. In lieu of flowers and in honor of our dad and these children, we would love for you to make a contribution to St. Jude Children's Hospital.

The family would like to thank Hospice of North Alabama and all of the family and friends who assisted during his time of need.

When words would escape him, Troy could often be heard saying "ain't this a site." We can imagine him now as he first encounters all of the wonders of Heaven saying it again, over and over. "Ain't this a site. Ain't this a site."

Our daddy died yesterday suddenly. He and my mom were married 54 years. Dad was 17 and mom was 16. He loved mom and his family passionately. Dad truly lived life to the fullest until the last. So many memories – too hard to capture here. To give a very small idea of my dad just in the last two weeks – he made blueberry jam, burned his favorite music on CDs (which he would give to friends and us), painted a bald eagle and bought a selfie stick to take pictures of the family on Thanksgiving. He was a one of a kind and always “did it his way” until his last moment. There’s an absence here at the home I was raised in today. God bless our precious dad.

Loretto Catherine Markle Washburn

Loretto Catherine Markle Washburn, age 97, passed away peacefully on Sunday, November 15, 2015 at NHC Scott in Lawrenceburg, TN.

A longtime resident of Summertown and more recently of Lawrenceburg, she is survived by one son: Robert Edgar Washburn of Pall Mall, and two daughters: Mary Lee Washburn Donahue of
Glassboro, NJ, and Patricia Anne Washburn Long of Hunstville, AL; one brother, William Markle of New Britain, Conn.; six grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren as well as many good friends and extended family members. Loretto was predeceased by husband Ernest R. Washburn of Summertown and her brother: John Markle.

Known as “Betty” to friends and family, Loretto was a proud first-generation American, born in St. Louis, Missouri, to immigrants John and Mary (Murphy) Markle. Her father was born in Austria-Hungary and was of German and European Jewish descent, while her mother was raised in a convent in Limerick, Ireland.

After graduating from high school in East St. Louis, Illinois in 1935 as salutatorian of her class, Loretto went to work for the Works Progress Administration in St. Louis. Shortly thereafter, she heeded the call of President Franklin Roosevelt for bright, public-spirited young people to come to Washington, D.C. and staff the federal agencies of the New Deal, accepting a position with the U.S. Public Health Service in 1937. It was there that she met her future husband, Summertown native Ernest Washburn. Betty and Ernest were married on November 11, 1938. The couple would also reside in New Orleans while working for the Public Health Service until Ernest accepted a medical disability retirement in 1951. At that point, they settled on the Washburn family farm outside Summertown and built their home on the Central Turnpike.

During the 1960s when her children were in school, Loretto worked as a secretary for the Lawrence County Soil Conservation Service. At the age of 58, she earned an Associates of Science degree from Columbia State Community College by attending night classes. With that degree, she became a Title I teaching assistant at Summertown Elementary School and retired in 1986 as the school librarian.

A dedicated community volunteer, Loretto helped spearhead the fundraising drive to construct the Lawrenceburg branch of Columbia State. She served on the Board of Trustees and president of the board of the Lawrence County Public Library for many years, coordinating efforts to raise funds for the new library building. A breast cancer survivor, Loretto volunteered for the American Cancer Society’s Reach for Recovery program and counseled local breast cancer patients. She served as long-time member and president of the Lawrenceburg Pilot Club and was State Representative for the local chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D.) For several years, she delivered Meals on Wheels to senior citizens served by the Summertown meal site, although she was well into her senior years herself at the time.

Loretto also served as a member of the Voluntary Support Committee for the Tennessee Department of Human Services, was an active member and secretary of the Summertown Community Club, and long-time member and president of the Henryville Family and Community Education (FCE) club. More recently she was a member of the Highland Park FCE club. For many years, she chaired the board of directors of the Summertown Cemetery Association, overseeing a cemetery where five generations of the Washburn family are buried. In recent years, Loretto was the Red Cross volunteer coordinator for Summertown bloodmobile drives, a member of the Lawrence County Senior Center board of directors, and a member of the board of directors of the local Alzheimer’s Association chapter. She was an active parishioner at Lawrenceburg’s Sacred Heart Catholic Church for over sixty years where she served as a lector and Eucharistic minister until advancing age forced her to decline further service. In 1996, Loretto was honored by the Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce as Citizen of the Year for her longtime commitment to her community.

Visitation for Loretto Washburn will be held on Tuesday, November 17th from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Neal Funeral Home, with prayer service at 7:00 p.m. The Mass of Resurrection will be celebrated on Wednesday, November 18 at 10:00 a.m. at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 222 Berger Street, Lawrenceburg, with Father, Joseph Mundakal officiating.
