Esther Tucker was a member of our Synagogue for a long time. Although she was disabled, she did her best to attend services and classes. She was outgoing, optimistic, and friendly. She always looked at the good in people, and even though resources were tight, would sponsor breakfasts on Sundays.
When Esther was no longer able to live alone, many of us helped her get accepted into the Regency Jewish Heritage Home on Demott Lane. Whenever someone visited her there, she was always cheerful and optimistic.
She passed away last August at the nursing home. She had attended Mincha services and told the nurses she felt tired. They took her back to her room to rest before Maariv services, but she passed away by Maariv.
We are all honoring her memory by going to her unveiling. Contact us if you need a ride or can offer others a ride.
