Mrs. Helen Dodson Tucker, wife of Charles E. Tucker, a well-known attorney of Centreville, and a partner in the insurance firm of Rich & Tucker, died very unexpectedly at the home of her husband,on Kidwill Avenue, about four o’clock Saturday morning, her infant daughter having died just a short time before. Mrs. Tucker was born at St. Michael’s the 7th day of February, 1880, and was twenty-six years old last February. She attended the public schools of Talbot county and after graduating from the county schools attended the Woman’s College, of Baltimore. Before her marriage last October she was first assistant of the Centreville High School, and previous to that taught in the Easton High School. In Talbot and Queen Anne’s county; she was regarded in the fore ranks of the teachers; well educated herself, she was peculiarly fitted to impart instruction to her pupils in a most effective manner. Mrs. Tucker was exceptionally poplar in Centreville. She was bright, entertaining and always to lend encouragement to any plan or project for the betterment of her school or town. She was a member of the Protestant Episcopal Church, and was very active in church work, being also a member of the choir. Enjoying an unlimited number of friends and acquaintances, she was always a welcome addition to any gathering, social or religious, and her presence seemed to brighten all occasions. In Centreville, as well as in Talbot county, her death will be a great shock, and the most profound grief will be felt at her unexpected death by her many friends, acquaintances and relatives. The funeral services were held at her late home, Kidwell Avenue, Monday at 1 o’clock, Revs. W. B. Stehl and James A. Mitchell officiating. The services were most impressive and solemn, as the same parties who so joyfully ten months ago acted as her ushers at the wedding, were the pall bearers to pay their last tribute of respect to their departed friend. After the funeral services the remains were carried to Wye Landing and thence to St. Michaels by boat where interment was made. The pall bearers were: Percy Petitt, of Norfork, Va.; Clarence A. Tucker, of Baltimore; Robert Dodson, of St. Michales; Clayton Wright, Madison Bordley and Percy Tucker, of Centreville.
