Priscilla (Percy) Oakes - age 74, of Corryton
Passed away Tuesday, September 13, 2016. A lifelong member of the Methodist Church, Percy was an active member of Rutherford Memorial United Methodist Church in Corryton for the last 45 years, a member of the choir and the United Methodist Women. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Rutherford Memorial UMC, PO Box 96, Corryton, TN 37721.
Percy loved spending time with her children, grandchildren and friends. She spent years as a stay-at-home mom, supporting her kids as room mom, team mom, band mom… and coming to see and support all their concerts, ballgames, cheerleading... She worked as librarian at the Corryton library, until she was called into service at the family nursery, where she worked the rest of her life. As the grandkids came along, she was there for all their activities as well, a constant, loving presence as Grandma. She was hooked on cruising since taking her first cruise twenty years ago, and looked forward to her annual cruise with friends. And she had a love/hate relationship with UT sports, which any UT fan can relate to. Percy was a joy.
