John 3:16
Marilyn Charlene (Seaver) Wagers, 82, of Surgoinsville, TN, went home to be with her Lord and Savior after an extended illness surrounded by her family.

Marilyn was born on September 18, 1941, to the late O.H. and Blanche (Cassell) Seaver. She was raised and has resided in Hawkins Co. her entire life. She graduated from Church Hill High School in 1959. Marilyn retired after 21 years of service as the secretary for Church Hill Clinic. However, her most important role was always that of wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Her family adored her, and she loved them with her entire heart. She had a heart of gold and a quick wit that kept smiles on the faces of everyone around her. She will be dearly missed, but we rejoice in knowing we will see her again.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her five brothers, Paul, George, Carl, Winton, and Robert Seaver.

Marilyn is survived by her devoted husband of 61 years, James B. Wagers; daughters, Tammy Pilgrim (Byron), Jamie Little, and Holly Newman; grandchildren, Nicole McCurry (Sean), Kaleigh Cole (Sammy), Jessica Kirkendall (Kodi), Wes Williams, Emily Contessa (Ben), Tyler Newman (Kelly), Tanner and Lucas Little, and Austin Barker; great grandchildren, Kevin and Lyla McCurry, Adalynn and Emersyn Kirkendall, Aurora Williams, Shawn and Riley Cole, and one on the way; brothers, Hugh Seaver (Glenda), James Seaver (Susie), and Randall Seaver; several nieces and nephews; and many dear friends.

The family would like to thank Amanda Bradley with Amedysis Hospice for the excellent care, kindness, and support.

A visitation will be held from 12:00-2:00 PM on Saturday, October 28, 2023, at Johnson-Arrowood Funeral Home. The funeral service will follow in the funeral home chapel with Pastor Heath Davidson officiating. A graveside service will follow at Church Hill Memory Gardens. Pallbearers will be family and friends.
