Mother Of Pat Summitt, Hazel Albright Head, Dies At 93

Wednesday, January 23, 2019
 Hazel (Albright) Head, mother of the late iconic University of Tennessee women's basketball coach Pat Head Summitt and a resident of Henrietta, Tn., passed away Wednesday. She was 93.
 
Mrs. Head was a familiar face and beloved friend to the Lady Vol basketball program and its supporters, as she frequently attended games with husband Richard in support of their daughter and her teams.
 

 
The Pat Summitt Foundation issued a statement about Mrs. Head.
 
"Mrs. Head was a strong, kind-hearted woman of faith who leaves behind a legacy of love and caring for others, qualities which were reflected throughout the life of Pat Summitt. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Head family."
 
Seventh-year Lady Vol head coach Holly Warlick, who became close to Mrs. Head during a UT career that includes playing four seasons as Summitt's point guard and serving 27 more as Summitt's assistant and associate head coach, shared her thoughts about someone she knew well and thought of as a family member. 
 
"When you look at the life of Ms. Hazel, it's easy to understand the roots of Pat's ability as a leader and her ability to connect with people. Ms. Hazel was gracious and kind but always tough and hardworking.
 
"Family was always first and 'Granny" was the foundation for the entire Head family. I would love to see when she was reunited with Richard, Pat and Pat's brother, Kenneth, and asked them 'who has the cards.'"
 
Funeral services will be held at Mt. Carmel United Methodist Church, 5050 Pickering Road, Clarksville, Tn., on Saturday at 1 p.m. with Pastor Regina Hall officiating. Burial will follow in the Mt. Carmel UMC Cemetery

So happy to hear the Revelette brothers are bringing their brand (and their pizza night) to the old 212 Market location in downtown Chattanooga. Bring it on! Garry Mac (click for more)

As I stood in the checkout line of the Walmart in Tiftonia this week, my newest friend named Harold asked me, “What’s the difference between an outlaw and an in-law. As I searched my mind, Harold responded, “Outlaws are wanted!” I immediately accepted his joke as a good omen.
