Tucker.-At her home in Painesville, O., November 9th, Emily M. Tucker. Miss Tucker was born in the town of Sterling, Windham Co., Conn. While yet a child, she removed with her parents to Washington Co., N. Y. where, in the year 1842, she united with the Baptist Church. In 1853 she came to Ohio, residing for a time in Columbia, Lorain Co., until about twelve years ago she, with her mother, took up her residence in Painesville.
Last April, after a long and weary sickness, Mrs. Tucker passed away. Night and day for months Miss Tucker had watcher over and cared for her mother until her physical energies, never very strong, were almost exhausted. And from this she never recovered. Her end was peace. She expressed no desire to live, but that she "might depart to be with Christ." Alike in her consistent, quiet, Christian life, and in her triumphant death, she exemplified the power of a living faith in the Son of God. "She was," said her brother to the writer, "our favorite sister. In her life she exemplified the words of Paul: 'Charity seeketh not her own; thinketh no evil; beareth all things; hopeth all things; endureth all things.'" Her funeral was attended on Saturday, November 10th, by a large number of sorrowing friends. Her pastor, Rev. A. Murdoch, officiated.
