TYPHOID ATTACK PROVES FATAL
Mrs. J. T. TUCKER Dies at Home of Father After Weeks of Illness;
Funeral Services Sunday
The hearts of many friends are bowed in sorrow at the passing
of the beloved spirit of Mrs. Mary Emma Coble TUCKER, wife of James
Thompson TUCKER, at the home of her father, W. L. COBLE in East
Centreville. The end came peacefully on Sunday morning at 1 o'clock,
following several weeks of illness with typhoid fever.
Funeral services were conducted at the home on Sunday
afternoon at 3 o'clock, in charge of Rev. James E. Woodward, pastor of the
Methodist church, and by Rev. Alvin L. Bates, pastor of the First Baptist
church. Interment followed at Centreville cemetery.
Deceased is survived by her husband; two sons, James Morris,
eight years of age, and Cecil, five; her father, W. L. COBLE; a sister,
Miss Lelia COBLE, and one brother, Hartie L. COBLE. She was 42 years
of age and was married about ten years ago to Mr. TUCKER who then lived at
Winfield, La., and was a former citizen of Perry County. After eight
years residence at Winfield, Mr. and Mrs. TUCKER and their two children
returned to this county, where they have since made their home although
Mr. TUCKER had recently returned to Winfield where he was employed when
summoned by the news of his wife's illness.
Mrs. TUCKER was a woman of many noble traits of character, a
devoted wife and mother, and beloved by hosts of friends. She was
known thruout her girlhood on Beaverdam, this county, as Miss Mamie COBLE
and her death brings a profound sorrow wherever she was known.
