  1. My condolences to all the Tuckey Family. I had the honor of growing up beside "Aunt" Ruth, she was one amazing women. Strong and independent, being married to a C.N man much like my Mom….they were the women that cut the grass and washed the cars by hand. Not to mention all the indoor chores. She kept her Family close and loved everyone! She lived her life to the fullest. I'm fortunate enough to have many amazing memories that will be kept with me forever. Rest In Paradise Aunt Ruth…..they say he only takes the BEST!!❤❤❤
