Elaine Hale Tucker

 

Elaine Hale Tucker, 91, passed away shortly after midnight on August 23, 2022 at the Birch Creek Assisted Living in Smithfield, Utah with her husband and daughter by her side.

Elaine was born December 10, 1930 in Preston, Idaho. She was the third of four children born to Nathan and Eva Hale. She grew up at the Utah Power and Light Company town in Grace, Idaho. She attended schools locally graduating from Grace High School. She attended Idaho State University where she met her husband of 71 years, Ralph Tucker on a blind date. They were married December 23, 1950 and later sealed in the Idaho Falls Temple. Elaine and Ralph were blessed with three children, six grandchildren and seven great grandchildren.

Elaine was a homemaker. She was the hostess with the mostest. She loved to entertain and cook. She showed her love by the food she lovingly prepared and abundantly shared. Elaine’s homemade candy and sweet cream rolls are legendary!

Elaine had a tremendous work ethic and discipline. She walked four miles a day for decades, followed by pool aerobics and back exercises. She was extremely talented. Her hands were never idle always creating, crafting, sewing, cleaning and ironing.

Elaine had endless energy and gave 110% to all she did. She donated her time in many charitable organizations and clubs, some of which she held leadership roles. She was a loving and a caring friend. She made lifelong friendships during her many moves with her husband Ralph. She lit up when she was in a room full of people. She was loved by all and will be missed deeply.

She is survived by her husband Ralph, sons; Ralph Lynn (Barbra), UT., Tracy (Charly), CA., Terri (Charley), WA., six grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents Nathan and Eva Hale, sisters Raedene Rhoads, Bobbie Harris and brother Nathan Hale.

The family would like to give special thanks to the loving, caring staff at the Birch Creek Assisted Living.
