Agnes Orrin stepped out of time and into eternity July 20, 2020, leaving a wealth of wonderful memories for family and friends.
Her life was characterized by her deep faith in Jesus Christ her Savior. Born Jan. 13, 1920, in Milledgeville, Ga., to Charles and Edythe Gibson, she was a graduate of Georgia State College for Women. Agnes moved to Atlanta and worked at the Georgia Department of Education. A blind date in 1939 allowed her to meet husband, Robert C. Orrin.
As newlyweds, Bob and Agnes moved to Lenoir City, where Bob worked with TVA building the Fort Loudoun Dam. Agnes always said Lenoir City was a “Boomtown” when they arrived in 1941. A great joy to Agnes was sending and receiving encouraging notes and birthday wishes during her more than 70 years in Lenoir City. She enjoyed the friendship of believers in many congregations. Her current church family is First Presbyterian Church of Lenoir City. Agnes personified the scripture to “pray without ceasing” for her heart was filled and overflowing with gratitude to God.
To honor Agnes’ 100th birthday, her family dedicated a prayer garden at First Presbyterian Church of Lenoir City.
She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Bob and Martha Orrin, his children, Tracy, Gretchen, Wesley and Lindsey; daughter and son-in-law, Beth and Doug Brown, their children, Scott Brown (Beth) and Mac Brown (Amy); and great-grandchildren, Christopher Orrin, Russell Brown, Christian Brown, Benjamin Brown, Noah Brown and Judah Brown.
Friends could have visited the funeral home 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Friday, July 24. Private graveside services will be held. A public celebration of her life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Wears Valley Ranch, 100 One Fine Place, Sevierville, TN 37862 or First Presbyterian Church of Lenoir City, P.O. Box 52, Lenoir City, TN 37771.
