Sentimental Sunday – Fanny Adelia (Hosner/Hausner) Tucker

Secured by a straight pin into William Lanning Tucker’s Daily Reminder for 1922 was this newspaper clipping in which he filled in the blanks shown in bold:

In Memoriam

In memory of my dear wife Adelia Hausner
who died April 9, 1916.
I often sit and think of you,
When I am all alone;
For memory is the only friend
That grief can call its own.
Like ivy on the weathered oak,
When all things else decay,
My love for you will still keep green,
And never fade away.
