Gaynell Harrell Sexton

Gaynell Harrell Sexton, age 85, of Greeneville, passed away early Saturday morning in Johnson City.

"... We will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not of human hands. We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing ..." 2 Corinthians 5:1-2.

She was raised in Knoxville, but lived most of her life in Greeneville.

Mrs. Sexton was a member of Wesleyan Bible Tabernacle. During the latter part of her life, she attended Hartman's Chapel United Methodist Church with her daughter, Donna Lowery.

She was a generous person, who always opened her home to family and friends for a meal or place to stay.

Mrs. Sexton retired from Philips Consumer Electronics after more than 20 years of service.

She was preceded in death by her husband: Dewey Wilmer Sexton; a sister: Wanda Perry; and three brothers: Doyle Sexton, Sonny Sexton, and Dale Harrell.

Survivors include two sons: Terry Sexton Sr., and his wife, Judy, and Dale Sexton and his wife, Ruth Ann; two daughters: Debbie Johnson and her husband, Jeff, and Donna Lowery and her husband, Ron; eight grandchildren: Terry Lynn Sexton Jr., Johnny W. Sexton, Holly Jones, Alec Johnson, Taylor Johnson, Alesha Sexton, Hannah Lowery, and Madison Lowery; eight great-grandchildren: Dakota, Jama, Elizabeth, Samantha, Chance, Chelsey, Justin, and Sophie; and a special sister-in-law: Lois Sexton.

The family extended a special thanks to all the caregivers at Pine Oaks and the nurses at the Johnson City Medical Center.

The family will receive friends from 1-3 and 5-7 p.m. today at Doughty-Stevens Funeral Home.

Funeral services will follow visitation at 7 p.m. in the funeral home chapel. The Rev. James Fain and the Rev. Frankie Isley will officiate.

Family and friends will meet at Doughty-Stevens at 10:15 a.m. Tuesday to go in procession to GreeneLawn Memory Gardens for an 11 a.m. committal service.

Pallbearers will be the grandsons and great-grandsons.
