Truck driver, deacon

Ernest Richburg, a truck driver and deacon of the Dalton Baptist Church, died Thursday of kidney disease at the Francis Scott Key Medical Center.

Mr. Richburg, who was 52 and lived on Jonquil Avenue in Northwest Baltimore, was a truck driver for the Preston Trucking Co. for 24 years. Earlier, he worked at what was then City Hospitals.

Born in Wilmington, N.C., he was reared in Olanta, S.C., where he graduated from high school. He moved to Baltimore as a young man.

Services for Mr. Richburg were to be conducted at 11 a.m. today at the church at 4302 Garrison Blvd. in Baltimore.

He is survived by his wife, the former Jacqueline Peterson; two daughters, Cynthia L. Blanding of Baltimore and Darlene R. Orange of Cockeysville; a son, Kevin L. Richburg of Baltimore; a brother, Johnnie C. Richburg Jr. of Baltimore; and two granddaughters. Frances W. Tucker, a retired hostess at the Bayou Restaurant in Havre de Grace, died Sunday of heart failure at her home in Perryville.

Mrs. Tucker, who was 80, retired 10 years ago after working at the restaurant for about 10 years. During World War II, she worked as a Pennsylvania Railroad clerk in Perryville.

The former Frances Watson was a native of Perryville and a 1930 graduate of the Jacob Tome Institute in Port Deposit. Her husband, Willie C. Tucker, died in 1970.

Services for Mrs. Tucker were to be held at 2 p.m. today at the Patterson Funeral Home in Perryville.

She is survived by two sons, Thomas W. Smith of Perryville and Stephen M. Tucker of Lutherville; a sister, Isebelle W. Jackson of Perryville; and four grandchildren.
