Marianne Chase Fair

Published 8:33 am Thursday, December 29, 2016

Mrs. Marianne Chase Fair, 55, Jonesborough, went to be with the Lord, Monday, December 26, 2016, at her residence after a lengthy illness.
Survivors include her husband of 28 years, Randy Fair, of the home; daughters and son-in-law, Sarah and Joshua Heltzel, Jonesborough, and Hannah Fair, of the home; mother, Ruth Chase, Jonesborough; brother, Calvin Chase, Nashville; and several nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her father, Clarence M. Chase, and premature infant son, Samuel Fair.
Early in her life Marianne attended the Presbyterian Church, but later worshipped in the Freewill Baptist Church where she enjoyed singing the praises of Jesus Christ.
Her illness forced her into early retirement from Johnson City Medical Center where she served as a Patient Care Provider. She prided herself in being a top-notch phlebotomist as well as a healthcare provider who truly cared about her patients. She also served on Jonesborough Little League’s board where she loved being around children, many of whom called her “Momma Fair.” Church youth groups were dear to her heart.
But the job she was most proud of and loved most of all was being a mother. Her family was her life.
Funeral services will be conducted at 7 p.m. Friday, December 30, at Dillow-Taylor Funeral Home with Rev. Ray Stockton officiating. The family will receive friends from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, prior to the service. The family will also receive friends at other times at the home of her daughter. Interment services will be conducted at 11 a.m. Saturday, December 31, at Fairview Cemetery. Pallbearers will be Tony Chase, Jamie Ferguson, Mac Ferguson, Steve Campbell and Tim Campbell. Memorial donations may be made to the Arthritis Foundation, 210 25th Ave. North, Suite 523, Nashville, TN 37203. Condolences may be sent to the Fair family online at
Dillow-Taylor Funeral Home & Cremation Services, Jonesborough, (423) 753-3821.
