We are saddened to announce the sudden passing of Marian Allene Tucker on Sunday, May 11, 2003 at the MSA Hospital, Abbotsford, B.C. at age 62. Marian was born May 23, 1940 at MSA Cottage Hospital, Matsqui and briefly resided in Abbotsford before moving to Mission where she attended school. She was married to her husband John in 1961 and they moved to Abbotsford in 1965.

Marian was much loved, will be greatly missed and forever remembered by her husband, John, her daughter Barbara who lives in Vancouver, her son Stephen (Charlene) and her two grandchildren, Alexandra and Evan who reside near Denver, Colorado. Marian leaves behind her sister Bonnie Morrison, and her brother Richard Shore and many loving and lifelong friends. Her father Kenneth Shore, and her mother Evelyn, recently predeceased Marian.

She was briefly involved with the Abbotsford Arts Council and was an active participant with Learning Plus. She found great pleasure in knitting Aaran sweaters for family and friends and spent many hours knitting baby toques for hospital donation. Marian delighted in welcoming people to her home which always meant a great deal to her and was a source of joy, she will be lovingly remembered for her kind and giving nature. Marian achieved her main objective in life by successfully nurturing her two children and delighted in their successes.

A Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, May 15, 2003 at 2:00 p.m. from the Chapel of Henderson’s Fraser Valley Funeral Home, Abbotsford, B.C., followed by a reception.
