    • Mary Launa Crum, 90, of Cedar Creek Road, died late Tuesday afternoon at Laughlin Memorial Hospital. Mrs. Crum was a homemaker and the widow of Wallace Crum. She and her husband owned and operated Wallace's News Stand in Kingsport for 40 years until she retired and returned to Greeneville to reside on their farm. Mrs. Crum was affectionately known as "Aunt Tunie" to her family and as "Miss Crum" when she lived in Kingsport. The family said her greatest joys in her later years were watching the beauty of the earth and the changing of the seasons. The family said that visits by family and friends, reading her Bible, and tending her garden gave Mrs. Crum enormous pleasure and many smiles. Survivors include a sister; several nieces and nephews; two sisters-in-law; and her companion. She was a daughter of the late Charlie and Bessie Waddell and was preceded in death by three brothers: Ralph Waddell, Joe B. Waddell Sr., and Ross Waddell; and four sisters: Nell Rader, Charlsie King, Antoinette Hawk, and Fann Nease. The family will receive friends from 2-4 and 6-9 p.m. Thursday at Kiser Funeral Home. The funeral service will be held at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon at Kiser Funeral Chapel with interment in GreeneLawn Memory Gardens. The Rev. Brenda Holloway and the Rev. James Thornton will officiate.  [4]
