Debbie Tucker, Briceville

Debbie Tucker, age 66, of Briceville, Tennessee, passed away on January 26th surrounded by her family at the home she loved so dearly. She was born March 12th, 1957 in Dayton, Ohio to father Lloyd Pridemore and mother Atrice Pridemore.

She was a proud member of First Baptist Church of Briceville. She loved the community where her and her husband, Eddie Tucker made their home and raised their family. She loved to cook (and oh boy how she could cook like no other). Everyone would come from all around to eat some of her good home cooking and to get a taste of that famous chocolate and peanut butter fudge that she made. She loved to go camping with her family and kids as they grew up on the Big South Fork River, vacationing at the beach with her sister Sandy, but nothing made her happier than waking up in the mornings, fixing her first cup of coffee and going to sit on the porch to look at the beautiful mountains in which she called home. She loved her family and friends with her whole heart, and she was dearly loved in return. She will be missed more than words could ever describe.
