Judith E. Tucker
Judith E. Tucker, 51, of Beverly, died July 1, 2014, under hospice care at Kaplan House, Danvers, with her beloved spouse, Elizabeth E. Mann, by her side. Judy was born Oct. 2, 1962, to the late George Tucker of Lynn. She leaves her siblings Diane, Kathleen, James, John and David Tucker and in-laws Don Ladder, Grace and Irene Tucker and Barbara, Linda, Sharon, Ann and Geoff Mann, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews, many caregivers and friends, especially Marty Radziewicz, Sharon and Bob Bailey and Kat Taylor. Judy graduated from Salem State College and received a master’s degree from the University of Indiana. She taught at a school for the deaf and at a school for the developmentally disabled. She was most proud of her work with Health & Education Services Inc. of Beverly, ensuring safe conditions at half-way houses for the mentally ill. Judy had a great love for animals, but especially dogs, and in particular, her beloved Schnauzer, Speed. Also, in the past few years, she had greatly enjoyed the many wildlife sightings she had right from the patio of the apartment she and Betsy shared on the edge of a field. Judy’s intelligence, dry sense of humor, her kind heart, incredible fortitude, and spirited sense of justice will be missed by all who knew her. A memorial gathering will be held at the clubhouse, Folly Hill Apartments, 1 Apple Rd., Beverly, on Aug. 17, 1-4 p.m., the Sunday nearest to what would have been Betsy and Judy’s ninth wedding anniversary Aug. 20.
Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
