A Message From The
It is wonderful when a passion and career come together to provide a home that residents and their families can be proud of, and a workplace that feels like family for employees. It is a privilege to work with the dedicated Truewood Knoxville team. I began my career at Truewood Knoxville and have come back home to the community that started my passion for senior care.

Meet your Neighbor
Minnie “Marnee” McMillin became a resident of Truewood by Merrill, Knoxville during our opening year, 2012.
Her past 102 years have now included living through two pandemics, shining in high school as the All-State Guard for Mississippi for three seasons, the 1937 Mississippi State Championship, and being the second runner up Miss Mississippi. Marnee graced the runway as a model for Lowenstein’s Department Store in Memphis. She was married for 37 years and after becoming widowed at the age of 46, she went to nursing school and became an LPN. Marnee then worked in long-term care and at Western Mental Health for many years.
Marnee and her late husband were blessed with a daughter, Mary, and now has two grandsons and 3 great-grandchildren. Mary believes her mother’s long life is due to her active, athletic lifestyle, gardening, canning, hard work, and overall motivation to live well. We're lucky to have her as part of our Knoxville family as she brings joy to those around her every day and can be counted on for a beautiful smile and quick wit. 102 years young and going strong!
