Edna Alice Tucker, age 61, passed away peacefully on March 25, 2020 in her home after a long battle with Bi-Polar and failing health. Edna was born January 29, 1959 to Ken and Hanna Moore in Sewickley, PA. She was born into a military family that moved frequently, living in many states. The Army life provided her the opportunities to explore, gain new experiences and fuel the curiosities about the world. After traveling the country, Edna returned to Montana where she settled down and started her family.
Edna was a kind-hearted person with a larger than life boisterous personality. She was always willing to jump in and help anyone with any task. She would strike up a conversation with the person next to her in the line at the grocery store, by the time she was finished checking out they would be best of friends.
Edna was creative and always found crafty new ways to express herself. She took her passion of cake decorating and made it into a side business creating beautiful wedding cakes. The art of stained glass was a hobby that took her into her later years. She spent several hours creating beautiful stained-glass sceneries, hearts and angels for her loved ones. She was a passionate cook that loved to share her creations with anyone who would try them. If you were one of the lucky few to receive a cheesecake for your birthday, you knew the power she had in the kitchen.
Edna had a thirst for life that many people were unable to keep up with. She had an intelligence and desire to learn that took her to college where she learned German, Police Administration and many other things. She was always taught to find education in the world around her and she shared this sentiment with her children. She was a landlord, she knew how to clean a sewer drain, and she had her Boiler Maker’s certificate, making her a ‘Jill of All Trades.’
Edna was a sentimental woman who loved her three children deeply. She was nostalgic for family holidays with her parents, siblings and their families. Edna always wanted each birthday and holiday to be nothing more than perfect allowing her craftiness to excel.
She was predeceased by her parents Kenneth and Hanna Moore. Edna is survived by her children Amanda and Steve Hass of Kenmore, WA, Ian Tucker of Billings, and Jillian Tucker and fiancé Brandon Busby of Las Vegas, NV. She also leaves behind three siblings and their families. In consideration of the current health protections, funeral services will be private. A memorial will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please make memorial donations to the National Alliance on Mental Illness at nami.org/get-involved/donate.
