Victoria, Vada and Anna bro: Charley
MARTHA TACKETT: By the help of the Lord, I will try and write a short
obituary of this dear sister in the Lord - to wit Sister Martha Tackett. She was
the daughter of the late Mayland Johnson and Usley Hall Johnson.
Early in life, she met and married
Brother Lint Tackett and to this union was born six children. Two sons: Truman
and Herman Tackett of Weeksbury, Kentucky. Four daughters: Mrs. Hazel Vanover
and Mrs. Victoria Vanover, of Weeksbury, Kentucky. Mrs. Vada Hall and Mrs. Anna
Lee Hall of Michigan. Sometime ago, Sister Martha and Brother Lint got to
thinking of death and needed a Savior and went to Jesus for their help. We
believe after they suffered for their sins, Jesus came to their rescue and
delivered them out of sin and set them on the Rock an d on their way to Heaven.
Sister Martha and Brother Lint were
both members of the Joppa Regular Baptist Church of Melvin, Kentucky. They
attended church as long as they were able to go. After Brother Lint crossed the
chilly tide, Sister Martha was so lonely and longed to go to be with her loved
one. So Children, you knew your mother's life better than anyone. Take the
Council she gave you all and meet them in that country where we, the Children of
God will be satisfied and not have to depart anymore.
Sister Martha also has one brother
living, Brother Charley Johnson, of Weeksbury, Kentucky, also a member of the
Joppa Church. Brother Charley, being left alone, no doubt know s that the next
call will be for him.
Sister Martha and Brother Lint loved
for the Brothers and Sisters of the Church to come and visit them, and the love
they had for their neighbors was great. So we all miss them very much and the
children are having their Memorial preached the 4th Saturday and Sunday in May
1980, at the home place and everyone is welcome. The family wants to thank
everyone that stood by the family in their time of sorrow. May God
