Elizabeth Jean Tucker
November 14, 1920 – March 13, 2015
Betty passed away peacefully in her home on Friday, March 13, 2015 surrounded by her family.
Born in Calgary, Alberta, and lived there until she met her husband Francis Boyd Tucker. They were married July 21, 1951, and later moved to Vancouver where their son’s Ronald James Tucker and Bradley John Tucker were born. In 1965 they moved to the Nimpkish Valley where they operated a logging contract business. In 1985 Frank and Betty retired and moved to Qualicum where they spent may wonderful years splitting their time between home and Palm Springs. Betty made many wonderful friends along the way. Friendship was something that Betty placed high value on. She made a point to always keep in touch with those she cared about.
When it came to her boys, they were everything to her. She always looked forward to weekly lunches and dinners with them. Betty is and has always been a woman of poise and class. She was always the one with a smile, and a welcoming heart. A genuine friend, amazing mother, grandmother and great grandmother. There are no words to describe just how much she meant to those who had the honour of knowing her. Strength, beauty, class, a sense of humour and independent! A beautiful woman from the inside out. You are missed dearly.
Betty is predeceased by her parents, 8 brothers and sisters as well as her husband Frank.
She leaves behind her two sons Brad Tucker, Ron Tucker (Tamara) her grandchildren, Mika, Matt, Brandon, Hannah and great grandson Kash. As well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and great friends.

The family wishes to extend a huge thank you to the staff at Comox Valley Senior’s Village, the care team along with Dr. Bakshi for all their support. Your life was full of loving deeds.
God Saw You Getting Tired
God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be
So he put his arms around you and whispered ‘Come With Me.’
With tearful eyes we watched you, slowly fade away,
Although we loved you dearly, we would not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.
