Tucker, Marie Leota - Emmett  
Marie Leota Tucker 1923 ~ 2016 Marie Leota Tucker, 92, a resident of Weiser, Idaho, formerly of Fairfield, passed away peacefully Friday, April 1, 2016 at her home in Fairfield, Idaho. Marie was born on August 7, 1923 to Arthur and Leota (Tribble) Tufares in Wichita Falls, Texas. At a very young age, her parents divorced and she lived with her mother in Arkansas. Her mother died from Tuberculosis. She and her brother Deno were put into an orphanage where they stayed until their aunt came and took them to Wichita Falls, Texas. She was raised with a very close knit family, which consisted of her father, brother, Aunt Jeannett and Uncle Deno and cousins. During her adolescent years, she helped in her father's café and attended local schools. She graduated from Wichita Falls High School in 1941. In 1945, while working at Shepherd Air Force Base, she met Lee Tucker. Lee was discharged on April 26, 1945 and they were married June 30, 1946. They relocated to the Camas Prairie in Idaho to begin a life of farming. Throughout her six decades of farming, she held many different roles. First and foremost was being a wonderful mother to Craig, Rod and her step-daughter, Donna. She supported them in many activities throughout the years. As head cook (the only cook) the harvest crew could always count on a great noon meal – when the white towel was waved, the men came running. In 1965, she began working for the Postal Service as a clerk. When Claude Ballard retired, she became Postmistress in 1972. Her first day was a real challenge; she went to work by way of a snow machine, and had to remain in town all week due to the heavy snows. She loved working and serving the community of Fairfield. Her most adventurous role was keeping all the many animals that would come through her front door contained and cared for. From "Freckles" the fawn to "Bop" the cougar, she literally had lions and monkeys and bears in her home. She was a long time member of the Fairfield Community Church and the Ruth and Naomi Society. She was also a lifetime member of the American Legion Auxiliary in which she loved to work in the hamburger stand every year during the rodeo's and fair. She loved the community of Fairfield in its entirety. Her hobby was "BELLS" which she had over 600+. Her most prized bell was the Buddha Gong from Vietnam. She said, "Because it came with her son." She is survived by two sons, Craig (Diane) Tucker of Weiser, Idaho and Roderick (Shelly) Tucker of Klamath Falls, Oregon; one sister, Leota Smith of Mabelvale, Ark.; and eight grandchildren: Lisa, Christie, Kelly, Roderick, Danny, Brian, Katie and Ernie; and eight great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren; also many cousins, nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, her brother, her aunt and uncle and her step-daughter, Donna Lewis, and her son-in-law, Glenn Lewis. A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, June 1, 2016 at 11:00 am at the Fairfield Community Church in Fairfield. A private family inurnment will be at the Mountain View Cemetery, north of Fairfield. Memorial contributions may be made in Marie's name to the Fairfield Community Church to which she was a member for 60+ years. Funeral and cremation arrangements are under the care and direction of Demaray Funeral Service – Gooding Chapel.
