Obituary: Joseph Walter Fortenberry - Oak Ridge Today
Joe was born in Knoxville, Tennessee, and attended East Tennessee State University, where he studied mechanical engineering. He had a long career with IBM in Knoxville and later owned his own company, InfoTech, in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
He is survived by his daughter, Shannon J. Fortenberry of Tulsa, Oklahoma, and son Thaddeus S. Fortenberry, daughter-in-law Leyla Megrelidze, and granddaughter Asta Eeva Elizabeth of Austin, Texas. Joe leaves his sister Mary Ellen Clark and her husband Don Clark, along with nieces Julie Holland and Terri Kerley of Knoxville and Steffanie Benson-Elliott of Altamonte Springs, Florida; nieces Stephanie Hall and Lindsay Morton and families; and nephews Ryan and Christopher Kittrell and families, all of Atlanta, Georgia.
Joe was preceded in death by his mother Stella, his father Joseph Hubert, and his younger sister Debra Fortenberry.
Joe will be missed, but the family is comforted knowing that he is free from the pain and discomfort he had experienced for years.
A celebration of Joe’s life will be held in June 2021 in Knoxville, Tennessee, with the dates to be determined. In lieu of flowers, donations in Joe’s name to Sacred Heart Home in Hyattsville, Maryland, are welcomed. Sacred Heart is where Joe called home for the last 12 years. The wonderful staff and the Ministry of Sisters, Servants of Mary Immaculate, made Joe feel safe and secure and introduced him to the beautiful teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. The address for Sacred Heart Home is 5805 Queens Chapel Road, ... Feb 1, 2020
Roses are red, violets blue. Turns out Valentine’s flowers can be recycled, too - Los Angeles Times
U.S. wedding costs almost $30,000.
Nonprofits such as the Knoxville, Tenn.-based Random Acts of Flowers don’t resell blooms but instead help facilitate these donations. Founded in 2008, the group works with hospitals and nursing homes to brighten patients’ days with the leftover flowers, which come from weddings, funerals, and grocery store surplus. In the last 10 years, it’s delivered more than 340,000 bouquets and repurposed more than 356,000 vases.April Churchill, founder of the Reflower Project in Boston, has a similar goal with her nonprofit, which she started in 2015. Florists, event planners, and wholesalers in the metropolitan area can contact her to pick up their surplus, which the Reflower Project then donates to nursing homes and women’s shelters such as Rosie’s Place. It’s not only good for the environment but also for patients’ recovery. A 2009 study showed that those in hospital rooms decorated with flowers and potted plants needed less postoperative pain medication, had lower blood pressure and pulse rates, and were less anxious and tired than those without. “You can really see the difference with flowers and how much joy they can bring people,” Churchill says.

Hannah & Matt | Boone Hall Plantation - charlestonweddingsmag.com
Hannah thought green and white was going to be her color combo for the wedding day, but after OD-ing on Pinterest, and talking with planner Natalie Knox of Boone Hall, they went with pops of color via the flowers and taper candles. The verdict? Classy and colorful!
