Obituaries: Andrew Lee Gibson & Fannie Cora Jakes Gibson

I've been going thru folders and binders looking over copies of things I ordered when I first started researching my family history in 1990.  Around that time I sent a letter to the Shelbyville Time-Gazette or the library in Shelbyville(I can't remember which one and don't still have the envelope) and got a copy of the obituaries of my Paternal Grandmother's sister Cora Jakes Gibson and her husband, Andrew Lee Gibson.  The image I have included with this blog post is a side by side screenshot of the two copies of the obituaries.  The information within the two obituaries is included below.
