Brenda Louise Tucker, 68, of Mechanicsville, Maryland passed away peacefully at her home on Thursday, April 8, 2021, surrounded by her family. She was born on April 7, 1953 to the late William Jennings Buckler and late Eleanora (Pilkerton) Buckler Wood.
She married her one true love, Douglas Tucker, on August 9, 1980. Together they have celebrated almost 41 years of blissful marriage. Their love continued to expand with each new addition to the family, their five (5) children whom they loved and raised to be strong, kind adults.
A hard-working woman, Brenda was a hair stylist and entrepreneur. She and Douglas owned and operated Southern Maryland Beauty Supplies. Brenda still continued to do hair from the salon she had at her own home for many years. Brenda loved working with her clients and making a bad day great with a new "do" and good conversation. She was part counselor and magician all while you sat in her chair.
She loved spending time with her family and her children were her greatest gifts. She could be the life of the party or the shoulder you needed to lean on. Her smile was bright and laughter infectious, her very presence lit up the world around it.
Brenda was dearly loved by everyone but she loved no one more than her family. Whether you knew her as Brenda, Mom, sister, grandma or great-grandma you knew she loved you deeply. Brenda has left her pain behind and has entered her golden palace with grace and health. When you hear the whisper of the wind or the sunshine upon your skin, know it's Brenda brushing away your sadness and fear and replacing it with love and happiness.
Brenda is survived by her husband, Douglas Tucker of Mechanicsville, MD; children, Billy Tucker (Laurie) of King George, VA, Tanya Schools (Robert) of Newland, NC, Crystal Heier (Jr) of Hollywood, MD, Shelley Holder (Brandon) of Lexington Park, MD; grandchildren, Jesse Schools of Newland, NC, Joshua Schools of Newland, NC, Hannah Storey of Butler, TN, Dawson Schools of Newland, NC, Emily Heier of Hollywood, MD, Peyton Heier of Hollywood, MD, Joe Schools of Newland, NC, Nellie Schools of Newland, NC, Brystal Schools of Newland, NC; and five (5) great-grandchildren.
