Services Held August 23 For Bernard Taubert, 77



Mr. Judson Bernard Taubert, of Jamestown, TN died Tuesday, August 20 at Cookeville Regional Medical Center. He was 77 years old.
Mr. Taubert was a well-known and trusted businessman in Jamestown and throughout the surrounding communities.  His business life began at an early age by delivering groceries for his parent’s grocery business, which began in 1947.  Through the years, his business involvement included groceries, dry-cleaning and laundry services, and appliance sales, rentals and repair.  For the past 40+ years, many in the community did business with him through Taubert’s Appliance Store.
Mr. Taubert was a lifelong resident of Fentress County, and many considered him quite the county historian. He never met a stranger, loved a good joke, and always had a piece of candy in his pocket to share.  He loved bird-watching and animals, and many were accustomed to seeing him sitting on the porch with his dog, Misty.
He was a member of the First Baptist Church of Jamestown and the Fellowship Men Sunday School Class. He was an avid woodworker and enjoyed nothing more than giving one of his bowls, trucks or other creations to people he loved, people who had cared for him, or people who had helped him.  In 2012, he was very pleased to be asked to donate a handmade replica grist mill to be displayed as part of the traveling Smithsonian exhibit titled “The Way We Worked”.  His grist mill now resides with the Fentress County Historical Society.
