john ervin jones

 

            Mr. John Ervin Jones, age 82, of Blairsville, passed away Monday, July 1, 2013 at his home surrounded by the love of his family.

            Ervin was born in Blairsville on November 3, 1930 to the late Dewey & Carrie Ballard Jones. He married the love of his life, Joyce Gwendolyn Nichols on September 23, 1950. Together, they serve as a sterling example of marriage and would readily tell you that it's not easy, but well worth it! He enjoyed walking and walked 3 miles a day until 2012, but Ervin's walk with the Lord has always been strong. His life's desire was that all who he encountered would choose to accept Christ as their personal Savior. Gifted with a servant's heart he has sacrificially given to many. Most Sunday mornings you could find him headed south to attend First Baptist Church of Atlanta to listen to his favorite pastor, Dr. Charles Stanley. Ervin was a hard working man who believed that "impossible" just meant that it would take a little longer. He loved his grandchildren dearly and spent a lot of his time with them, especially as toddlers. He could drive anything with wheels: school buses, trucks and farm equipment. He began to raise cattle and won Cattleman of the Year. At the age of 60 he started a trucking company that continues today. Ervin dreamed of taking his RV and going to Florida. He made a couple of short trips, but mostly used it as a hideaway in his shop. In his later years, Ervin was often heard saying, "If I had it to do over, I don't think I would work as hard". We can all benefit from those words of wisdom. We can't take material things with us, so make sure of your eternal destination and enjoy each day with those you love. He was greeted at the heavenly gates by: his parents and his sons, Benny & Terry Jones.

            Ervin's warm spirit will be remembered and greatly missed by all who knew him, but especially by his family: loving wife of 62 1/2 years, Joyce Nichols Jones; daughter & son-in-law, Trudy & Anthony Matthew Smith; son & daughter-in-law, Keith & Janet Jones; grandchildren: Billy Joe Jones, Melinda Gail Groves, Brannon Neal Jones, Hunter Smith, Emma Smith, Hayden Smith, Shelley Zeigler, Kyle Jones and Jessica Jones share in Ervin's legacy along with great grandchildren: Morgan, Mallory and Brycen Jones, Dawson and Drake Groves, Dustin "Bubba" and Tylan "Luther" Jones and Kahlilah Zeigler.

            Funeral services for Ervin were held at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, July 3, 2013 from the Chapel of Cochran Funeral Home with Rev. Ric Hurd officiating. Special music was presented by the Nichols family. The family received friends at the funeral home on Wednesday from 1 p.m. until the service hour. Interment followed in Jones Family Cemetery. The following gentlemen served as pallbearers: Billy Jones, Brannon Jones, Dustin Jones, Hunter Smith, Tylan Jones and Whitey Groves. Honorary escort include the following gentlemen: Kyle Jones, Hayden Smith, Dawson Groves, Drake Groves and Brycen Jones.

            In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Gideon's International, P.O 521, Blairsville, GA 30514-0521.

daisy mae patterson

 

            Cochran Funeral Home of Blairsville announces funeral services for Daisy Mae Patterson, age 87, of Blairsville who passed away Thursday, June 27, 2013 at her home.

            You were always welcome in Miss Daisy's home, if you came by she would prepare you a home cooked meal, a cold sweet tea and sit with you in the kitchen to talk. Having grown up in a time when hard work was required of all, she was no stranger to gardening, canning, and raising all kinds of live stock. Her "Green Thumb" allowed her to grow just about anything, it was said that she could grow flowers on concrete. Through failing sight and with calloused hands she taught her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, that love comes from within, she didn't allow what others saw as birth defects to prevent her from giving, loving and providing for her family and friends. She is an example to us all. She got married when she was 23, learned to drive when she was 24 and moved to her first house with indoor plumbing when she was 42, raised 8 children and was married to the same man for 56 years. What a legacy she has left. Her granddaughter wrote, "When I look at my grandmother, I see the calluses on her hands that came from a labor of love and hard, honest work. I see laugh lines carved down either side of her mouth where she has smiled and laughed many times through the years. The network of crinkles around her blind, soft, blue eyes show knowledge of every experience that she have lived and learned from. When I gaze upon my grandmother, I see love, strength, wisdom, and everything I want to be when I am old."

            She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 56 years, Eugene William Patterson; her parents; son, James Patterson; infant son, Bobby Patterson; daughter & son-in-law, Linda & Martin Thornley, granddaughter, Laura Colwell; great grandson, Gage Patterson and a sister, Lexi Breedlove.

            Daisy will be warmly remembered by all who knew her, but especially missed by her family: daughter, Betty Hooper; son & daughter-in-law, Raymond & Brenda Patterson; daughter & son-in-law, Donna & Ricky Rowland; son & daughter-in-law, Larry & Jamie Patterson and son, Arnold Patterson. Her legacy will also be shared by 25 grandchildren, 39 great grandchildren and 8 great-great grandchildren.

elmer c. thompson

 

            Mr. Elmer C. Thompson, age 84, of Blairsville, GA, passed away Monday, July 1, 2013, at his home.

            Elmer was born on December 16, 1928 in Culberson, NC. He spent his childhood there with his parents, Charlie and Dollie Anderson Thompson and four siblings: Blanche, Lois, Fred and James. At the age of 18, Elmer met the girl who would later become his loving wife for 61 years. He and Christine Tate were married on April 12, 1947. Their son, Michael, was born in September of 1952.

            Elmer began his teaching career at the Chigger Ridge country school in the Dooley section of Union County when he was 18 years old. In order to obtain a degree in education, Elmer attended Young Harris College, drove a bus load of teachers to North Georgia College, took courses there and finished up his education with 3 six year degrees from Peabody College--the education school of Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. Over the years, Elmer served as a teacher, a Title I Coordinator and as a Principal. He loved teaching and he worked tirelessly at trying to improve education in Union County by helping to bring about the consolidation of the Union County School System. One of Elmer's greatest pleasures in his later years was to meet a former student and have a good chat about the "old school days".

            After 35 years of dedicated service in education, Elmer retired in 1984. This time began one of the happiest periods of his life - being a grandfather. Michael married Mildred Moore who had come to Union County to teach and they had one daughter, Leah, who became the Joy of Elmer and Christine's life. Although, Christine passed on in 2009, Elmer was blessed to live to enjoy his great-grandson, Sam. The two became great buddies and spent many happy times together.

            Elmer also gave back to his community through active involvement in the Gideon's, Lion's Club and Ivy Log Baptist Church. One of his favorite past times was getting as grimy as possible working in his yard and garden. He raised a huge garden to share with his family and friends each year and that is where the Lord found Elmer when He came to call him home on Monday morning. Elmer will be greatly missed by his many friends and family. He was a kind, loving father, grandfather and a friend to all.

            Funeral services for Elmer were held at 2 p.m. on Thursday, July 4, 2013 from the Chapel of Cochran Funeral Home of Blairsville with Rev. Jerry Karnes and Rev. Tony Black officiating. Special music was provided by Martha Davenport and Becky Rogers. The following gentlemen were selected to serve as pallbearers: Stephen Thompson, Paul Thompson, Gerald Owenby, Harold Atkins, Bill Floyd and Junior Puett.  Serving as Honorary Escort to Elmer's family was the Union County Lion's Club. Interment was held at Bethany Baptist Church Cemetery. The family received friends at the funeral home on Wednesday evening from 6 until 9 p.m.

            In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Gideon's International , P.O. Box 521, Blairsville, GA 30514 or the Union County Lion's Club, P.O Box 652, Blairsville, GA 30514.

            Arrangements entrusted to the care of Cochran Funeral Home of Blairsville.  Remember you can share your fond memories with and share your condolences with Elmer's family by visiting our website, www.cochranfuneralhomes.com.
