"THE REAPER DEATH. The Master Gathers Another Jewel Unto Himself.
On last Monday morning at 6:25 o'clock the gentle spirit of Mrs. Jane Tucker passed from earth to heaven – to eternal rest. For several months she had been sick, and she was only waiting the summons to the Spirit Land. Surrounded by loving children, relatives, and friends, peacefully, trustfully her eyes closed in death.
Mrs. Tucker was born in the state of Mississippi in the year 1823, and was in her 73rd year when she died. While she was young her parents moved to Florida, near Tallahassee, thence going to Georgia. In 1844 she was married to the late J. T. Tucker and move to Russell county, where she lived until a few years ago when she moved to Pratt City, in Jefferson county, with her son, Mr. G. W. Tucker, which place was her home at the time of her death. While yet a young woman she led to place her trust in the Savior, and more than fifty years of her life was spent in His service. And she was truly a good woman, as all who knew her attest. She was the mother of eight children—six sons and two daughters—five of whom survive her, and mourn her loss: Messrs. W. A. L. Tucker, of Seale, J. H. Tucker, of Atlanta, N. Tucker, and G. W. Tucker, and Mrs. L. M. Lacey, of Pratt City. Her parents were Mr. and Mrs. Wm. E. Cooksey, who were well known and who are yet remembered by many Russell county people among whom they lived many years.
All that human aid could do for her was done, but to no avail so far as staying the hand of death, and on Monday last, in the brightness and glory of the early morn, she laid down the burden of life, the mortal put on immortality, and in the glorious light of Christ's holy religion her spirit went to join her Maker in the beautiful home of the blest, lacking just 4 days of 13 years since her husband passed away. She was buried at Pratt City Tuesday at 3 p.m.
To the bereaved ones The Register extends its most heartfelt sympathy in their affliction, and may the good Lord bless them and comfort them."

Sleep sweetly mother dear
I am watching by your grave
A few more years at farthest
and I will be by your side.
