Jenna McCue, 34, a registered nurse at Parkway Cardiology Associates and Methodist Medical Center, died Jan. 2 as a result of a two-vehicle crash on New Year’s Day. But in keeping with her life of service to others, she was able to provide life-saving organ gifts to six people all over the country through Tennessee Donor Services, according to her obituary.


Survivors include her husband of 10 years, Benjamin McCue of Clinton, and her mother, Gloria Petrowski of Oak Ridge.

According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, McCue was eastbound on East Wolfe Valley Road in Anderson County. She lost control of her car at 10:41 a.m. near Crisman Road. She over-corrected, veering into the westbound lane where her car struck a pickup driven by Dennis Irwin, 65, of Clinton. Neither driver was cited.

Services for Jenna McCue will be held Sunday, Jan. 6, at Faith Promise Church on Pellissippi Parkway where she was an active member.

Henry David Law, a co-founder with his father of Law’s Furniture in Maryville in 1945, died Jan. 2 at age 88. He and wife Shirley had five children. His obituary outlines a life of service and business acumen. He built Law’s into a nationally known furniture store, renovating adjoining buildings to create an expansive showroom, a warehouse and office space.

After retiring in 1992, he started a furniture import business. He obtained a contractor’s license and built custom homes while continuing commercial real estate restoration. At age 85, he was the general contractor for the new Law’s Furniture Showroom in Knoxville.

Mr. Law’s services are scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 5, at First Baptist Church of Maryville.
