Gloria Jean Crank Tackett
1926 — 2017
Gloria Jean Crank Tackett was born on October 6, 1926 in Lawrence/Louisa, KY to Victoria Mae Roberts and Eugene Crank. She moved to Heaven August 29, 2017, in her apartment in Lexington, KY.
Gloria was the wife of James Ishmael Tackett, also of Louisa. Gloria was preceeded in death by her parents, brothers and sisters, and her beloved husband of 60+ years.
She is survived by her 2 sons: James Ashley Tackett (Beth) of Lexington, and Timothy Tackett (Tammy) of Louisa; grandchildren: Andrea Lynn Tackett, Desirae Gayle Huff (Brandon), Bowen Tackett; great-grandchildren: Victoria Gayle Brown, Eva Grace Brown.
Gloria was a faithful Christian and a lifelong member of the United Methodist Church. She loved her family, her home, her church, and politics. She spent most of her life on the same mountain where she grew up. However, after marrying a Navy man, she and her beloved Ish traveled the US (including Hawaii, Alaska, and roadtrips to California) before returning to KY.
Gloria touched countless lives and will be missed by all who knew and loved her. She lived her life faithful to God, and is no doubt with Him now. Let those who love her live for Christ as she did so we may all see her again soon.
Funeral services will be conducted 1:00 pm Friday, September 1, 2017 at Louisa United Methodist Church with Pastor Dan Smith and Jody Vansickle officiating. Burial will follow at Greenlawn Cemetery in Louisa, Ky.
