We will receive friends on 5:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. Friday February 19, 2021 at Hillcrest Baptist Church with services to follow at 7:00 P.M. officiated by Pastor Charles Murrell. Family will meet at the cemetery for a private burial (We didn’t even tell her where it was). We request that flowers not be sent (Susan and Becky have black thumbs and don’t want to feel guilty for their demise) and that donations be made to the Gideons International.

Priscilla Jarnagin, 74, of Maryville TN, left this world on February 17, 2021 to begin a life free of ill health (and Frank’s nagging) in heaven with those that she missed dearly. Preceded by parents James and Dollie Gates, son Michael Jarnagin, great grandson Bentley Wright, and brothers Dan Gates and Larry Gates. Survived by devoted husband of 52 years William Franklin Jarnagin (no one knows why she put up with him this long), daughters Susan (her favorite) Bynum and Tim, Rebecca (her other favorite) Trollope & Bill (the only person who gets the better of Frank and the only one who managed to stay on the Christmas list) and more grandchildren and great-grandchildren that Susan wanted to name when she wrote this. Okay, 10 grandchildren – give or take 1 or 2 depending on the day of the week when mom counted them, and about as many great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother Harold Gates & Shirley and a host of nieces and nephews (again Susan ran out of steam with the list of names). Now that mom is finally quiet, dad is gonna let her out of the corncrib (only people at their church will understand this) and hopefully he will quit telling this corny joke on Sundays.
