     Born in Vanleer, Sallie was the daughter of the late Albert Grover and Edna Elizabeth Sensing Tucker.  She was preceded in death by a brother, Leslie Tucker.  Sallie was raised in the Oak Grove Free Will Baptist Church.  Later in life she affiliated with Midway Church of Christ.  A Christian woman of faith, her family described her as family oriented and she loved preparing meals (and especially sweets and desserts) for her family and friends.  Also, her porcelain doll collection afforded her many hours of satisfaction.  Because of her strong work ethic, her family described her as a “workaholic”.  For more than 27 years she drove a Tom’s snack truck and because of her love of people and their love for her, she serviced an ever-expanding route.  She was lovingly known as the “Tom’s Lady,” or the “Potato Chip Lady”.  When that career ended, she drove for the Little Debbie Snack Co.  She was a caring and giving person.  Even in death, Sallie was thinking of others.  For that reason, she donated her earthly remains to Meharry Medical Center.  She had a rare condition known as PXE and it was her wish to donate her body for medical research so the doctors and future doctors might learn more about this condition.

     Survivors include two daughters, Cylina Cornett (Jack), Nashville, and Tina Hunter, Dickson; two sisters, Edith Davidson, Charlotte, and Lula Mai Mills, Hermitage, TN; six grandchildren and four great grandchildren; several nieces and nephews.
