Bessie McGhee, age 92 of LaFollette entered the gates of heaven on May 28
following a brief illness. She was born in Norma to Narcissus and Elizabeth
Hatfield. The family later moved to Beechfork where she met her husband, Bailey
McGhee. She surrendered her life to Christ at a young age, and was a member of
Norma Methodist Church. Bessie's ability to show the type of unconditional love
she found in scripture to all around her was unsurpassed. She was a loving
wife, mother, and grandmother, and in turn was loved by all who knew her. She had
a quiet and gentle nature, with sparkling eyes and a wonderful smile. She was
an excellent cook, and in her younger years even enjoyed playing softball
with her grandchildren during the summer. She endured the hardships of life with
an undying faith in God, and instilled a strong sense of values to her
children. We are who we are today because of her, and she will always remain in our
hearts. By God's amazing grace, our precious Lord took her by the hand and led
her to her eternal home. Not only was she greeted and welcomed home by Jesus,
but also by her much loved family members who have gone on before. She was
preceded into eternal life by parents: Narcissus and Elizabeth Hatfield; husband,
Bailey McGhee; brother, Warren Hatfield; son, Clifton McGhee; great grandson,
Daniel McGhee. Bessie is survived by daughters and sons-in-law, Clara Prim of
LaFollette and Robert Prim of Lynnville, Lula Belle and James Meredith of
Douglasville, GA, Margie McGhee of LaFollette, and Patricia McGhee of LaFollette;

Bobby Prim of Nashville, Ronald Meredith of GA, David McGhee and Bradley
McGhee of OH, and Donna Madron of Jacksboro; 14 great grandchildren; special
nephew, Butch Hatfield of LaFollette; niece, Kathy Palmer of TX; many other
relatives and friends. While her passing brings much sorrow to her family and
friends, Bessie would prefer us to celebrate her eternal life in Heaven. She will be
missed. Funeral services were May 30 in the Chapel of Martin Wilson Funeral
