Itolene Heatherly George age 92, of Maryville, passed away peacefully on Thursday, August 16, 2012, at her daughter's home. She was born in Campbell County, TN. She was one of seven children born to John H. and Louis (Dinwiddie) Heatherly. Her younger years were spent raising her four children on a farm in Blount County.

A special thanks to Avalon Hospice and their caring staff including Lisa, Mary, Patti, and Stacey. Family will receive friends from 12:00 until 2:00 PM, Saturday, August 18, 2012 at Smith Trinity Chapel with a Celebration of Life Service at 2:00 PM.
