Martha Law TAYLOR, was born May 15, 1876. She peacefully departed this life February 3, 1942, making her earthly pilgrimage 65 years, 8 months and 18 days. She was united in marriage to James M. Taylor, January 15, 1893. To this union were born 11 children. Two died in infancy, Arthur Steavens and Allie May. Nine are still living; five boys and four girls as follows: Eld. George S. Taylor of Maryville, Route 5; John of Alcoa; Andrew, Sam, and Willard, Mrs. Lizzie Hubbard, Mrs. Grace McDonald and Mrs. Evelyn Lowe of Maryville, Route 5; Mrs. Winefred Myers of Maryville, Route 6; Twenty-eight grandchildren living and two dead. Three great-grandchildren living and one dead. She is also survived by her husband and a large circle of other friends and relatives. She professed faith in Christ in early girlhood and joined the Primitive Baptist Church at Laws Chapel, were she remained a most faithful, true, loyal and devoted member until death; and like a soldier died at her post of duty in the service of the Lord. More than 30 years ago she and her husband were ordained Deacon and Deaconess, which duties she faithfully performed with joy and gladness. Thus fulfilling the command of the Scriptures, James 1 and 27, " Pure religion and undefiled before God and the father is this. To visit the fatherless and the widows in their afflictions and to keep himself unspotted from the world." In this way she became favorably known, loved and respected by a large circle of acquaintances throughout the county. As a church member she was faithful and true to the very last. She was always found in the congregations of the righteous, never shirking duty, but shouldering up the cross, putting on the whole armor of God, setting a good and wholesome example for the younger women and mothers to follow. As a mother, she was self-sacrificing, of untiring faith and true to the children of her trust. As a companion, she was loyal, kind, loving and devoted to her husband. Their pilgrimage of 49 years here together ha been one of loyalty, love and true companionship and devotions to each other. She has met and faithfully performed all the duties and responsibilities of a Christian wife and mother with Christain courage and fortitude without a murmur or complaint. Her life's work is done. Her history has been completed; the books have been closed. God has said, "well done, thou good and faithful servant, come up higher. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world." Sorrowing loved ones lift up your weeping eyes and look by an eye of faith to where the sweet spirit has gone, and say, "Lord thy will, not mine be done." By the grace of God we'll meet her in the sweet by and by. The body was laid to rest in the Laws Chapel cemetery beneath a beautiful blanket of flowers. Funeral services were conducted by Elders John W. Oliver, B. D. White and Tom Davis.

Ralph Max TEFFETELLER, 82, passed away peacefully in his sleep at his home on May 28, 2009. He had been in declining health for several years. He was born in the Chilhowee View Community on November 14, 1926 to Lamar Gamble and Ethel Evelyn Burchfield Teffeteller. His loving parents set an excellent example for Ralph. He grew up in the home they built and joined Peck’s Chapel at a young age. He remained a member there his entire life. He graduated from Everett High School in the middle of World War II and joined the Navy as an Electrician. He served aboard the USS Alvin C. Cockrell DE-366 in the Pacific Theater. After the war, he started to work at ALCOA. That same year, he met the love of his life, Elsie Amilea Pollard, but he called her Polly. They were soon married and started their own family. Ralph worked graveyard shift for many years. He made himself available to stay with his daughters after school while Polly worked. He taught his daughters many things. He taught them to sew, to cook, to fish, to garden, and to love life and people. He was a good man and a credit to his upbringing. He helped many people throughout his life by the use of his skills as an electrician, cabinet maker, and shade-tree mechanic. He didn’t charge for most of his services; if people paid, that was OK and if they didn’t, well, that was OK too. After his daughters were grown, he would change shifts with men at ALCOA who had small children so those men could enjoy Christmas with their families. He retired from ALCOA after 40 years of dedicated service. He and Polly traveled all around the world together. They took their grandchildren on extended camping trips throughout the Western US and on shorter trips to the Gulf Coast beginning when each grandchild was two years old, and continuing until Polly’s health halted the excursions. Preceded in death by his beloved Polly; loving parents, Lamar & Ethel Teffeteller; infant brother, Arnold.
