Ella Marie Tucker, born Feb. 25, 2010, in Rexburg, left this world Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013.
A naturally sweet and precious little girl, she brought smiles and joy to everyone she encountered. Whether she was singing, riding her bike, or helping her mom and dad, she radiated love and happiness. As a big sister, she provided protection and endless hours of entertainment (and the occasional bit of teasing). She was instant friends with anyone she met, and one of her favorite things was spending time with her family, especially her cousins. Ella loved going to church and learning about her Heavenly Father and her Savior, Jesus Christ; she was a living testament of Christ's love.
She will be greatly missed by her father and mother, Stuart and Nicole Tucker, and her little brother, Dylan Webster Tucker. Ella was also looking forward to the sibling coming in February, and is most likely giving many pointers to that spirit right now. Ella's extended family, including her paternal grandparents, Scott and Brenda Tucker; her maternal grandparents, Keith and Nancy Lords; as well as a host of uncles, aunts, cousins and great-grandparents, join Stuart and Nicole in their love and their grief.
Ella often asked why she couldn't meet Jesus here on Earth; we know our sweet princess is sitting on His lap and telling Him stories even now. We were all fortunate to have had 3 1/2 years with this precious miracle, and we know that we will meet again in Heaven as a forever family.
Funeral arrangements are under the care and direction of Wilks Funeral Home, 211 W. Chubbuck Road in Chubbuck.
