Olive Rose Hogg Tackett

       Lynn Clapp; her mother and dad, Esquire and Polly
Eldridge; three brothers, Dayto
It is with a sad and broken heart that we try to write
the obituary of our sister, Olive Rose Eldridge Tackett.
She was born on August 8, 1935 into the home of
Esquire and Polly Eldridge in Letcher County, Kentucky.
She went home to be with the Lord on February 19, 2005, being 69 years, 6 months and 11
days old.
     Early in life she met and married Earl Clapp and to this union
was born three children: two girls, Joy Lynn Clapp and Cynthia Lea
Turnbow; and one son, Timothy Earl Clapp.
     Those preceding her in death are her husband, Earl Clapp; one
daughter, Joy
n, Fess and James Combs; and five
sisters, Lola Jean Eldridge, Marie Combs, Mary Adams, Ailcy Caudill
and Zeda Mae Eady.
     Left to mourn her are two children, Cynthia Turnbow of Georgia
and Timothy Clapp of New Washington, Indiana; five grandchildren,
Shauna DuBois of Georgia, Heather Hogg of Carrolton, Kentucky,
Brandon, Amanda, and Brian Rivera of New Washington, Indiana;
three brothers, George Eldridge of Xenia, Ohio, Paul Eldridge of
Montgomery, Alabama and John Eldridge of Hodgenville, Kentucky;
four sisters, Maxie Mullins of Charlestown, Indiana, Mildred Collins
of Jeffersonville, Indiana, Kathleen Cornett of Detroit, Michigan,
and Geneva Gentry of Lexington, Kentucky; and a host of nieces
and nephews.
     Early in life she got forgiveness of her sins and was baptized into
the Ira Combs Memorial Old Baptist Church of Jeff, Kentucky. Later
in life she moved to Indiana and was a charter member in the Chester
Hogg Memorial Old Regular Baptist Church and was a member until
her passing.
     A few years after her first husband died she married Stephen
Lowell Hogg. They were married 22 years when he died. In 1996 she
married William S. Tackett; who also preceded her in death.
     Her health had failed her and she had been in a nursing home for
the past year. She was a faithful member in her church. We feel she
went home to be with the Lord. Our loss is Heaven’s gain.

     John Eldridge and Maxie Mullins.
