Betty Jo Stubblefield, 92, passed away peacefully at her home on Wednesday, February 22nd.  She was born on January 17, 1931, in the Loudon County community of Steekee to Charles A. and Velma (Allison) Mills. After attending Springbrook Elementary and Alcoa High School she married Lewis Clifton (Cliff) Stubblefield Jr. on August 13, 1950, at Central Baptist Church in Alcoa. Betty’s life was strongly entwined with her family and friends. Her main priority was her family and her home, but she also had an adventurous streak. Her positive, confident attitude helped her learn to water ski even though she couldn’t swim a lick, go spelunking with the boys, work the Stubblefield Christmas tree Farm, and tackle many home projects both inside and outside. Betty was a talented homemaker (food yeah!) and loved working in the yard. She especially loved being “Mamaw” to her 10 grandkids and 10 great-grandkids. Betty joins her sister Margie Boring, brother David Mills, and other family. She is deeply missed by her husband Cliff, boys Jeff (Donna), Trent (Joni), grandkids David (Elizabeth), Jonathan, Jason (Magan), Andrew (Jackie), Daniel (Katie), Michael (Naomi), Grace, Katie (Nathan), Emily, Sarah (Alex), great-grandkids Caris, Caleb, Evelyn, Thomas, Elliana, John, Gideon, Oliver, Josiah, and Maggie, sisters Lois (Richard) Patterson, Shirley Stinnett, sisters-in-law Vada Mills, Ruth Stubblefield, nieces, nephews, and extended family and friends.  As Betty would often say when she was ready to rest after a “too long” routine medical visit; “Let’s wrap it up, boys.”
