Sunday's Obituary - Fred Tucker d: 6 September 1924

William Lanning Tucker’s 1924 diary has a number of obituaries from 1924 and 1926 attached to the pages using straight pins. These obituaries have held up remarkably well, and I am excited to share them.  The first one is of William’s younger brother, Fred Tucker, who died 6 September 1924.

Fred Tucker, a well-known resident of Enfield, died at 5:30 o’clock Saturday afternoon at his home, following a brief illness. Death was due to paralysis. Surviving are his widow and two daughters, Miss Louella Tucker and Mrs. Erven Griffen; one son, Emmett W. Tucker, all of Enfield; two brothers, William Tucker of Ulysses and G. Smith Tucker of Enfield, also three grandchildren.  The funeral will be held at 2 o’clock tomorrow afternoon at the residence, Rev. F.C. Booth of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Enfield officiating. Interment will be in Hayts Cemetery.
