Jimmy Lee Whalen, 74, of Soddy-Daisy, went home to be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ at his home under Hospice Care on Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2019. He was a retired worker and supervisor at DuPont for 32 years. Jimmy was preceded in death by his son, Patrick; and granddaughters, Erica and Amanda. Survivors are his daughter, Pamela (Pops’ Girl) and son-in-law, Mike Straussberger; daughter-in-law and helper, Linda (Pat) Whalen; granddaughter, Tera (Rich) Schaffer; great grandchildren, Zack, Abby and Trinity; best friend and helper, Gloria Whalen; cousin and helper, Judy McGlamery; good friend and helper, Debbie Smith; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, James and Debbie, Jack and Mildred, Wendell; many nieces, nephews and friends. Jim was truly loved and will be greatly missed but knowing where he is and that we will see him soon and that he is finally being reunited with his beloved Patrick, Erica and Amanda makes him being gone a sweeter sorrow. Jim’s wishes were to be cremated with a private service at a later date with his family. Condolences and memories can be shared at www.williamsonandsons.com.
