Tucker, Juanita Armeta

Juanita Armeta Tucker passed away from natural causes in Dallas, Texas on Wednesday, August 11, 2021.

She was born on January 15, 1936 in Dallas, Texas to Clyde and Hazel Roberts.  She was a beloved wife, mother, and mamaw.

She liked to go by “Nita”
-She was a secretary at Dover Elevators in Dallas for several decades.
-She was a devout Baptist that attended church regularly.
-She and our grandfather built a lake house in Mabank, of which the grand children have many fond memories.
-Later in life, she and my grandfather owned a feed store in town (and an auctioneering business), so they knew many in the community.
-They lived in Hot Springs for a few years and developed lasting relationships there, including an adopted “daughter” and son-in-law in Shirley & David Barron.
-When they returned to Texas, they moved to De Kalb, near Texarkana
-In 2011, Juanita came to live in Dallas, so she could be looked after by her granddaughter, as her dementia progressed.

Juanita was preceded in death by loving husband, Tommy Tucker, and adoring sons, Don, Jestis and Mark Tucker.  She is survived by two sisters, Betty Culpepper and Sandra Leflore; grandchildren, Christie Gotti, Jeff Jestis, John Jestis, and Tommy Tucker; and six great grandchildren.
