Charlie (Carol) Tucker

February 15, 1944 – October 23, 2015

It is with great sadness the family announces the passing of a woman who inspired so many and lived her life to the fullest, Charlie (Carol) Tucker. Charlie passed suddenly October 23, 2015 at home, at the age of 71 and her passing has left a vast emptiness in our lives.

Predeceased by her mother Edith E. Hampton, she is survived by her husband of 53 years, Robert; son Robert, son Matthew, (Michelle), grandsons Mark and Paul, daughter Shannon (Phillip), granddaughter Danielle, great-grandchildren Dexter and Evelyn, and granddaughter Roanne.

Charlie was born in England and immigrated to Canada with her mother when she was 4. She grew up in Toronto, where she met and married Bob (Robert Tucker). She followed the love of her life as he served in the military for 28 years. Over that time she made many friends that to this day remember her kindness and her giving heart. She had too many jobs to list, she was an inspiration and she was never one to shy away from a challenging job. Charlie and Bob settled in Port Hardy when Bob retired; the town a place they never wished to leave. She was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion there, and many will attest to the wonderful meals she prepared. She also helped with the Canadian Cancer Society. Her tradition of handing out Christmooses at Christmas will be missed.

A Celebration of Life will be held the 14th of November, 2015, from 1:00pm until 4:00pm at the Royal Canadian Legion, 4965 Beaver Harbour Rd, Port Hardy, British Columbia.

In lieu of flowers for those wishing to honour Charlie’s memory, please make a donation in memory of Charlie to the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Canadian Cancer Society.

The family passes on a huge thank you for the kindness, compassion and professionalism showed to them at a very sad time by the Port Hardy RCMP detachment, BC Ambulance Services and Port Hardy Volunteer Fire and Rescue.
