Sarah Frances Pollock Edwards

There is one less flower in life's garden today. Sarah Frances Pollock Edwards shed her last petal on January 22, 2015 after a valiant five-year battle with t-cell lymphoma.

She leaves behind her loving husband of nearly 54 years, Ronald E. Edwards of Lawrenceburg, TN

5 Precious Children, Dana Nolan of Shelbyville, TN

Doug Edwards, of Lawrenceburg, TN

Daniel Edwards of Lawrenceburg, TN

Drew Edwards of Lawrenceburg, TN

Don Edwards of Berlin, Germany

And the joys of her life thirteen grandchildren; Daniel, Sam and Micha Simpkins, Kelsey, Ben and Lauren Edwards, Sarah and Hannah Nolan, Emma, Andrew and Carson Edwards and Logan and Amber Edwards.

She was the adoring baby sister of Fred Pollock, Martha Porter of Portland, TN., and Doug Pollock of Lawrenceburg and she also leaves many beloved nieces and nephews. She is also survived by four adoring chihuahuas, KoKo, Babe, Sweeney and Dolly, whose devotion to her was without bounds.

Sarah, our "purple rose," bloomed for 75 years. She was born in the home of her parents, R.R. and Willie Lynch Pollock, in downtown Lawrenceburg, TN., in 1939. She atteneded Lawrence County High School, where she was crowned Miss LAW-CO HI in 1957. She attended the University of Tennessee at Memphis, training to be a cytotechnologist. She was the first cytotechnologist hired by Maury County Hospital, and in this career, she helped to detect the canceer of others for close to 40 years. She married on Ground Hog's Day in 1961 and celebrated each anniversary wishing she had married in a warmer season. After transplanting to Brentwood, TN., for 30 years, she returned to her home soil in Lawrenceburg in 2001, where she joyfully retired and tended her gardens and flowers. Shewas happiest when she was playing in the dirt, but getting her toes into the sand of any beach was a close second.

Sarah was a friend to everyone from her brethren at the Marcella Falls Church of Christ which she atteneded, to neighbors, to random strangers at Krogers. She loved making new friends playing "Words with Friends" on her iPad, and she was an avid crossword puzzle player. She loved the color purple, elephants, and anything that saved money. Her favorite time of the year began when planting season arrived and ended at the first frost. She adored swimming in the ocean or playing with her grandchildren in her beloved pool. Most of all, she was "just a Christian," and she leaves a legacy of faith instilled in her children and grandchildren, who will always remember her many favorite proverbs and quotations.

Arrangements are being handled by Neal Funereal Home in Lawrenceburg, TN. The family will receive friends from 2pm to 8pm Monday, January 26, 2015 at Neal Funeral Home.

Funeral services will be conductged at Neal Funeral Home at 11am Tuesday, January 27, 2015 with Drew Edwards and Daniel Edwards officiating.

He was the son of James and Marybelle Lynch Marsh and lived his early life in Greensboro, NC.  He was a U.S. Marine during the time of the Korean Conflict and a graduate of Wake Forrest University.  He lived most of his life in Lawrenceburg, TN.  He was retired from Union Carbide.  His first marriage was to Sue Rumley Marsh and they had two sons, Kevan and Darren Marsh.  Later he married Polly Powell Marsh and was a loving father to her two children Will Koehler and Ingrid Koehler.  He had two grandchildren of his own, James and Jenny Marsh and enjoyed Polly’s grandson Bill Newman.

Bill was known far and wide for his humor, kindness and his love of fishing and music.  Among Bill’s many contributions was being a Boy Scout Leader of one of the first integrated troops in Tennessee, a board member of Harbor House and the Creative Arts Network.  He was a long time member of the First United Methodist Church Choir and served as church treasurer for several years.  He and Polly loved to travel and they enjoyed many wonderful trips together.  Most of all Bill was truly interested in and shared laughter with every person with whom he came in contact.  His wealth was in his family and friends and the good times he had with them.

His friends and family will gather Friday, January 16, 2015 to share memories and laughter.  This gathering will be held in the Christian Life Center at First United Methodist Church in Lawrenceburg, TN. At 6pm  Visitation will be from 4pm to 6pm on that day in the Parlor Room of the Christian Life Center.

Leola Moody Blankenship

Leola (Lola) Moody Blankenship, age 95, passed into the arms of Jesus at her residence in Ethridge on Tuesday, November 25, 2014, while surrounded by her family and friends.  She was of the Baptist faith.

Lola was born in Anderson, Alabama on August 13, 1919 to Jesse L. Moody and Levader E. Johns Moody.  She was the oldest girl of four with an older brother who was a deaf mute.  She quickly assumed the role of “big sister” and remained such until the gradual loss of her siblings in later life.

At the age of 16, Lola dropped out of school and boarded the “huckety buck" (train) to seek employment.  She didn't even know where she was going to sleep that night, but found shelter with two old maid cousins.  After repeatedly begging the manager for days for a job, she was hired at a large garment factory as a sewing machine trainee.  Saving her money, she was able to rent a small  apartment which eventually led to her meeting a certain young milk man named Henry. 

On February 15, 1941, she married the love of her life, Henry F. Blankenship and was always devoted to him.  Soon after the marriage, Henry shipped out in the Navy to serve in World War II.  Lola went to work at the Fisher Aircraft plant in Memphis doing her civic duty. 

After the war, Henry returned home to find Lola had a bustling business in Columbia, TN known as “Blankenship’s Grocery”.  Once Henry was acclimated as a grocer, Lola broke away from the store to found another business; a children’s shop known as “Jack and Jill’s”.  In the early 50’s, Lola expanded the children’s shop to include a location in Lawrenceburg. 

During her commutes between Lawrenceburg and Columbia, Lola became interested in establishing a home in Lawrence County.  She became acquainted with realtor, Mr. Oren Hood, and surprised Henry once more by purchasing the “Old County Farm” as their new home.

Partners in life as well as business, Henry and Lola (usually working side-by-side) owned and/or operated various businesses together:

1.  Lawrenceburg Manufacturing (which later sold to Kay Windsor)
2.  James Lawrence Restaurant
3.  Crockett Market
4.  La-Del Manufacturing Company
5.  Hank’s Market
Just to name a few.

I guess you could say Lola was one of the first “liberated women” but she never wanted you to classify her as such. When conducting business, she would always refer to herself as “Mrs. Henry Blankenship”.  After 65 years of marriage and numerous adventures together, she lost Henry to cancer in 2006. She was devastated and continued to grieve for him until their reunion at her passing. 

Lola is survived by

One Daughter, Cynthia “Cindy” Blankenship (Ronnie) Benefield;

Three grandchildren: Rhonda Benefield (Brock) Davis, Ron “Bubba” (Paula) Benefield, Jamison (Emily) Benefield, all of Ethridge;

Eight great-grandchildren:  Kenzie Davis, Chase Benefield, Bryce Davis, Cam Benefield,
Bryleigh Benefield, Will Benefield, Lila Benefield and Olivia Benefield;

Special niece, Pat Byrd of Pulaski, TN;

Beloved pet: Peanut and numerous nieces and nephews.

The family wishes to acknowledge the “special angels” that made it possible for Lola to remain in her home and get the best of care:  Melissa Chandler, Betty Long, Raine Polaczk, Krisinda Belew, Destiny Mashburn, Paulette Bassham and beloved great-granddaughter, Kenzie Davis. We love you all!  

She was preceded in death by her parents: Jesse and Levader Johns Moody; husband, Henry F. Blankenship; one brother: Ulysses G. Moody; three sisters: Dell Moody Young Thompson Coningham, Jessie B. Moody Young and Barbara A. Moody Bradbary.

Mrs. Blankenship’s family will visit with friends on Saturday, November 29, 2014 from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at Neal Funeral Home with funeral services conducted immediately following. Officiating at the services will be Pastor J.D. Bosheers and Ron "Bubba" Benefield.  Burial will be in John Lay Cemetery in Ethridge.
