SHOEMAKE, JOSIE: Many hearts were made sad when on Thursday morning,
April 17, 1913, God in his wisdom called Mrs. Josie Shoemake to higher service. She had come from her home at Bloomington Springs to visit with her children at Cookeville, was taken seriously ill and died within a week. She had every care and attention which loving hands and medical skill could give but to no avail. Hers was a life of usefulness and good deeds, through the 66 years of her life she was ever active in ministering to those about her who needed help. She had been a widow for several years, but bore her life of loneliness with as much fortitude and cheer as anyone could. All her children except one were with her to the end. She was unconscious for several days, and left no dying testimony, but a life of service and Christian work is more satisfaction to those she left . . . . Two sons and four daughters survive her. Her remains were carried to Smith county to the old family burying ground for interment.
This obituary notice appeared in the May 1, 1913 edition of the Putnam County Herald.
