Her Cooking Was Famous And Sought After

  • Thursday, June 1, 2023

Lorraine Abernathy Aiken died peacefully on May 29, 2023, at age 94.

Born in Madisonville, Tn., she grew up in Lupton City, a Dixie Yarns mill community which she loved. She graduated from City High School and Tennessee Wesleyan College, where she met her husband, William P. Aiken, MD.

She was a devoted member of St. Luke Methodist Church and a committed community servant who made the lives of others better. She was loved by all in Rivermont, Dupont and Stuart Heights and was known by many as the mother of the young people in those communities. All were welcome in her home. Her cooking was famous and sought after for many gatherings.

She was predeceased by her husband and is survived by her sons, Bill (Ann), Bob (Helen), Mike (Meg) and Jeff and her daughter, Beth. She had eight grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

The family gives special thanks to Penni Stansell, our cousin, who has been Mother's devoted caregiver.

There will be no visitation and there will be a private family burial.

Memorial contributions may be made to The Boys & Girls Club of Chattanooga, CHATT Foundation or a charity of your choice.

Arrangements are by Hamilton Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 4506 Hixson Pike, 423 531-3975.
