Obituary – Raymond Pimental

George “Raymond” Pimental passed away October 16, 2019 at the age of 82. Funeral Services were held Saturday, October 19th, at Faith Baptist Church in Shelbyville, Tennessee. Rev. Charles Redmond officiated and burial followed at Meadowview Cemetery, Wartrace.

Raymond was born May 16, 1937 on the island of Bermuda. He met and married his wife Irene Hilda Madeiros in 1962. Together they worked in the family business, The Friendly Store, a local grocery store before moving to Tennessee in November of 1984.

Raymond’s favorite phrase “Everybody Loves Raymond” rings true. He was proud of his heritage as a Bermudian and was equally proud of becoming an American citizen in 1995. He never met a stranger and was known as a life-long practical joker and storyteller. He was a member of Faith Baptist Church and enjoyed being a part of the hospitality committee for many years. Raymond was involved in his community in many ways. He served on the Farm Bureau Board, the Election Committee of the Duck River Electric Membership Corp. and the Wartrace Chamber of Commerce for several years. Raymond was an avid horse lover and served as the Volunteer Leader of the 4-H Youth Horse Program and judging teams. For fifteen years Raymond organized the
annual Strolling Jim Memorial Trail Ride for hundreds of riders that benefited local families in need. He truly loved this event. For the past several years he enjoyed his daily breakfast and fellowship with friends in the R.O.M.E.O. (Retired Old Men Eating Out) Club.

Raymond was a beloved husband, father and grandfather. He was preceded in death by his parents David and Angelina Pimental, brother, Michael Pimental, sister, Kimberly Zuill all of Bermuda.

Raymond is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Irene Pimental; son Bruce (Sonja) Pimental of Shelbyville; daughters, Karen (Tony) Howell of Dayton, TN.,
Rebecca Jones of Shelbyville and seven grandchildren, Haley and Jake Pimental, Lucas and Annie Howell, Maddie, Meghan and Miah Jones.

Obituary – Mrs. Dorothy “Dot” Green Tune

Dorothy Tune was born May 30, 1929 to John Crutcher Bell Green and Mary Frances Trice Green of Nashville. She graduated from Hillsboro High School in 1947 and then attended Vanderbilt University where she was an active member of Pi Beta Phi and met and fell in love with Bill Tune.

She was married to Bill Tune for 46 years until his passing in 1996. Dot and Bill raised four children and built a wonderful life. Dot was his partner in every sense of the word. When he served as the Executive Director for The Celebration, she planned social events and sold advertising in the Blue Ribbon Yearbook. For Bill’s real estate company, Tune & Company, Dot helped manage auctions and ran the cashier table. Dot continuously wore her wedding band from the moment she and Bill said “I do,” and that precious band still encircles her finger just as it has for the past 69 years.

She was an avid bridge player but was not as competitive as her sister, Faffy. For her, a bridge game was about 20% game and 80% conversation, a large portion of which was spent deciding where to go have lunch. She and Faffy could spend days playing cards, while solving all of the world’s problems.

Dot loved her church, family, and friends with 100% of her heart. She despised bad grammar, cuss words, and bathroom humor, but she loved her family anyways.

She enjoyed eating at Red Lobster and drinking Chardonnay, chilled with a single ice cube. Although she fed many mouths and prepared thousands of meals, she never claimed to enjoy cooking.

She loved to knit and needlepoint. She’s made all her family and friends afghans, sweaters, doll sweaters, dog sweaters, scarves, Christmas ornaments, and of course, dish cloths. She and her daughter, Ann, owned a needlecraft store for several years.

Though she never gardened a day in her life, Dot remained a dedicated founding member of the Town & Country Garden Club for more than fifty years.

She had 4 children, 12 grandchildren, and 9 great-grandchildren. “Nanny” or “Dot Dot,” as she was known to her grandchildren and great grandchildren, took great pride in her close-knit family and commented many times about how proud she was to have “started all of this,” referencing her large family, with her beloved Bill. She loved her large, always-growing, family and was thrilled when she recently learned about two more great grands on the way. Her family’s happiness made her happy, and she saw their accomplishments as hers too. She experienced her share of heartbreak, but the majority of her life was richly blessed with many more moments of incredible joy.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, son, Buck Tune, son-in-law Mark Farrar, Sr., brothers Johnny and Al Green, and sister, Faffy Dawson. She is survived by two daughters, Ann Farrar and Alice (Scott) Johnson, son John (Angie) Tune, niece Dottie Dawson, nephew Hank Dawson, and her 12 grandchildren and their families, including 9 great-grandchildren.

A funeral service was held at the First United Methodist Church of Shelbyville on Friday, October 25 at noon. Visitation with the family was held two hours prior to the service. Burial followed the ceremony at Rosebank Cemetery in Flat Creek. Memorial gifts can be made to First United Methodist Church of Shelbyville (122 Public Square N, Shelbyville, TN 37160) or Hospice Compassus (1805 N. Jackson Street, Suite 11, Tullahoma, TN 37388). Feldhaus Memorial Chapel assisted the family. The Scoop sends our deepest condolences to the Tune Family.


Carol Ann Jones, 79, of Greenville, Kentucky passed away on Saturday, October 19, 2019, at 9:50AM at her home in Greenville. Carol Ann was born August 8, 1940, in Muhlenberg County to the late Vechel and Gertie Gaston. She graduated from Hughes Kirk High School in 1958. She and her late husband, Ray Jones, started and operated Ray Jones Trucking, Triple J Trucking, and Sunrise Coal.

Carol Ann was an active member of Second Baptist Church in Greenville. She and her special friends enjoyed providing weekly meals to people in need. She also enjoyed spending time with her family. She is survived by her three children, Teresa Jones of Greenville, Steve (Winnie) Jones of Greenville, and Grant (Candra) Jones of Greenville; her seven grandchildren, Mandy (Rick) Justice, Brandy (Phil) Clark, Courtney (Mitch) Ervin, Austin (Katlyn) Jones, Barrett (Stephen), Spencer (Paige) Jones, and Bronson (Camrie) Jones; her five great-grandchildren, Peyton and Presley Justice, Adeline and Colin Clark, and Emri Ervin; and her one brother, L.B. (Merrill) Gaston of Murray.

Funeral services were held on Wednesday, October 23, 2019, at Tucker Funeral Home in Central City with Rev. Bob Thurman officiating, assisted by Lee Jones and Rev. Curtis McGehee. Burial followed in Woodland Cemetery. Visitation was held on Tuesday evening at the funeral home. Online condolences may be made at The Scoop sends our deepest sympathies to the Jones Family.

Equine Obituary Cash In My Stock

The Charles Gleghorn Family has announced the passing of World Grand Champion Cash In My Stock. Cash was humanely laid to rest on September 27th after a prolonged illness. He was 28 years old.

Cash was born and raised on the Dotson Brothers Farm in Franklin, Tennessee. Charles Gleghorn purchased Cash from Jesse Dotson after recognizing his great talent. Cash began his show career for the Gleghorn Family under the training banner of Layne Leverette. In 1999, under the direction of trainer Steve Aymett, Cash In My Stock won his first 15.2 & Under Stallions World Championship. Cash was then moved back home to Brookhaven Stables in Fayetteville, Tennessee and trained by Brett Boyd. In 2001 Boyd directed Cash to the 15.2 & Under World Championship and World Grand Championship. The following year while still under the Boyd training banner and with his owner in the irons, Cash and Gleghorn won the Amateur 15.2 & Under World Championship and Reserve World Grand Championship.

After a successful show career, Cash became a breeding stallion as part of Waterfall Farm’s premier line of stallions. Dr. Mike Harry oversaw this phase of Cash’s life. After some time, the decision was made to bring Cash home to stand stud at Brookhaven Stables. Cash would spend his remaining years at Brookhaven being cared for by Brett Boyd and Christen Lovvorn. Cash In My Stock will be greatly missed by his owners, trainers and caretakers. The Scoop sends our deepest sympathies to The Gleghorn Family.
