Judy Ann Hall Tucker

Mrs. Judy Ann Hall Tucker, 73, of Advance, died on Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2019 at her home after a courageous 10-year battle with cancer.

Her spirit and love will live on through many.  She was born in Mecklenburg County on Oct. 26, 1945 to Ernest Transil Hall and Thelma Dare Mauldin Hall. She was preceded in death by her parents; an infant daughter, Sonya Michelle, and a sister, Barbara Lambeth.

Surviving: her husband of 54 years, Donald Tucker; 2 daughters, Wendy T. Martin (Rick) and Traci T. Buddie (Mike); 5 grandkids, Olivia, Reese and Tucker Martin and Zachary and Zoe Buddie; a brother, Ernest Hall (Edie); 2 sisters, Carol H. Tucker (Thomas) and Shelby H. Hilton (Bremon); and many other friends and extensions of her family.

She retired from Duke Power and Wake Forest University, where she made many life time friendships. She also loved all kids unconditionally and leaves this message: “We don’t know what tomorrow holds, but we know who holds tomorrow.”

A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 28 at Bethlehem United Methodist Church with Dr. Chuck Baker officiating. Entombment will follow at Westlawn Gardens of Memory Mausoleum. The family will receive friends from 6-8 p.m. on Friday at Hayworth-Miller Kinderton Chapel.
