Amos, Debby.jpg

Amos, Deborah Ann Chappell, age 72, of Lebanon, TN passed away quietly at home on June 17, 2022 after a long illness. She was surrounded by people she loved and who loved her, who knew her sweetness and kindness, her joyfulness and her humor. Debby Ann, as her mother affectionately called her, led a lifetime of nurturing and devotion to her siblings, to her son Brian, her grandson, Bailey, to her late husband, Ronnie, her parents and her friends. Though sher grew old, as we all must, retiring from an accounting career at Tractor Supply to enjoy her lifestyle of playing cards with friends, traveling and camping, she remained forever a teenager in spirit. She was a living memory of 1960’s Friday night dances at Two Rivers High and Donelson High, of a child dressed up in a rabbit costume performing the bunny hop with a hundred of her elementary school friends, of a young military wife during the Vietnam War, and of a young working mother who adored her child Brian and was inseparable from Ronnie. Always laughing like a teenager; always listening; always looking to do the right thing and to help others see all the good in things.

She will be terribly missed now by those who survive her:

Son – Brian Chappell

Grandson – Bailey Chappell

Sister – Margaret Chappell (Jeff) Fawbush

Brother – Lindsay (Susan) Chappell

Sister-in-law – Sarah Jane (Johnny Ray) Boyd

Step-mother – Bonnie Chappell

And enough nieces and nephews and grand nieces and grand nephews to put on their own bunny hop

Beach, Arthur.JPEG

Beach, Jr., Arthur Alexander, went to be with his savior Jesus on June 19, 2022. He was born on September 8, 1932 in Los Angeles, California to the late, Arthur and Mae Beach. He had 5 sisters Barbara, Norma, Theda, Jewel and Rachel; and a brother John. Arthur was known as ‘Sonny’ to the family so as not to be confused with his father. He accepted Jesus as his savior at an early age and attended church wherever his family was living at the time. Art graduated from Santa Paula High School in California and began studies at Pierce College where he also played on the football team. During this time, he worked many jobs as a carpenter and as a ranch hand in the San Fernando Valley. He also enjoyed some amateur car racing at the Van Nuys airport when the airplanes weren’t landing! During the Korean War, he was drafted into the Army and served in the military police detachment in Albuquerque, NM guarding the atomic bomb. He also played football for the base team which gave him additional opportunities during the season. After his discharge from the Army, he returned to his home and church in Los Angeles where he met a young woman recently arrived from Indiana named Opal Davis. Art and Opal were married on December 1, 1956 and Art was hired as an engineer at Rocketdyne during the infancy of the space program. He went on to work there for more than 30 years on the rocket engines for space programs from Mercury to Apollo to the Space Shuttle. During this time, Art and Opal had two sons: Doug and Dean. The family attended the Simi Valley Church of the Nazarene where Art served in many capacities including Sunday School teacher, usher, board member and choir member. He would often join Opal in singing duets for the services. When Doug and Dean were in High School, Art got the family started riding motorcycles which became a family tradition for weekend outings and camping trips. Art loved to travel and took the family camping each summer to various national parks in the Western US and Canada. Upon his retirement from Rocketdyne, Art and Opal moved to Morristown, TN. They then moved to Bluffton, SC, then to the Nashville TN area where they have lived for the past 10+ years. During their retirement years, they continued to serve in various churches singing in the choir and serving in the community. Art and Opal continued in their love for travel and went on many road trips and cruises, often bringing Doug’s and Dean’s families along to Alaska, the Caribbean, and South America. Art was always laughing and ready with a funny joke to keep things light. He was well known for his Dad and Grandpa jokes. Art Beach will be remembered as a man who was a friend to all. There were never any strangers to him. He always left smiles and laughter wherever he went.

 

Art is survived by Opal, his wife of 65 years. Sons, Doug and wife Patti of Ventura CA and Dean and wife Melody of Mt Juliet, TN. Grandchildren,  Amber, Jonathan, Melissa and Kristin and great grandchildren, Mason and Braelyn.

 

Funeral services will be conducted 10 a.m. Thursday, June 23, 2022 at Bond Memorial Chapel with Pastor Tommy Dove officiating. Entombment will follow at Hermitage Memorial Gardens.
