Kathryn (Katie) M. Tucker, 89, died peacefully March 5, 2014, after battling cancer for the last year. Katie is survived by her husband Richard, of 65 years, her brother Allen Miller of California, her son Harold, daughter Shelley (Ben) Juvan; and her six grandchildren: Greg (Kriss) Juvan of Livingston, Amy (Scott) Thiel, Laura Juvan-George (John), Brandee Tucker, Michael Tucker and Britt-Nee (Matt) Byrd; along with fifteen great-grandchildren.
Kathryn was Worthy Matron of Josephine Hepner #89, Order of the Eastern Star, and a member of the Daughters of the Nile. She also served as the Service Unit Manager for the Helena area for the Girls Scouts of Big Sky Council for several years.
Katie loved crafting, listening to her music, playing her organ, working cross-word puzzles, and traveling. She had a love for beautiful clothing and enjoyed finding hidden treasures in garage sales and thrift stores; often times delivering those treasures to her beloved grandchildren. She was always thinking of others and welcomed visitors with a big smile and a cup of coffee.
By Katie’s request, no formal service will be held; however, the family will be hosting a celebration of her life Saturday, March 15th at the Consistory Shrine Temple from 2 pm to 4 pm.
