Jetta 'Jean' Samples, age 74, of Newport

On Sunday night, November 11, 2012, our dear Mom left this world and her frail body to join our Dear Savior in Heaven.

She loved to sing and listen to gospel music. She is now free of pain and suffering. She is with God walking those streets of gold rejoicing in her new body. She was an animal lover and left behind three furry babies: Chico, Colby, and Cheyene.

She was preceded in death by her mother Anna Lee Sisk, father William Henry Hux, infant brother Billy Hux, brother-in-law and sister-in-law James Whisel Samples and Mary Trentham.

She is survived by her husband of 45 years Robert 'Bob' Samples, sons and daughters-in-law Danny and Kathy Webb, Donny and Trish Webb, Bobby Wayne and Lisa Samples, and Brian Samples, all of Newport; ten grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; four step-siblings; brother and sister-in-law Charles and Betty Samples; special step-brother Philip Kirpatrick of Greeneville; special niece Sandy Parker; special cousin Alvin Hux; also other family and friends.

Funeral services will be held at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, November 13, 2012, in Manes Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Gene Gorrell and Rev. Carroll Crumbley officiating. Burial will be held at 11:00 a.m. Wednesday, November 14, 2012, in the Dunn Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Tuesday prior to the funeral services.
