It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our adoring, as well as adored loved-one, Sadie Tucker, age 83 years on Tuesday, August 24, 2021, surrounded by family, at Pleasant View Towers in St. John’s.
Predeceased by her parents Edward (Ned) and Sarah Green; loving partner of forty years, Edward Patrick Mahre; sisters Irene Skiffington, Stella Pye and Gertie Gill; brothers-in-law Jack Gill, Benjamin Bungay, Harvey Simms and Lester Skiffington; daughter-in-law, Wendy Tucker.
Leaving to mourn with fond and loving memories are her sons George (Ruby) of Torbay, Paul of St. John’s, daughter Kim (Rita) of Davidson, Saskatchewan; grandchildren Allison Boland (Matt) and Zachary; great-grandchildren Isla (Sadie) and Jesse; brother Robert Green (Mary) of Paradise; sisters Daisy Bungay of Newtown, Rose Vincent (Howard) of Newtown and Doris Simms (Clem) of Springdale; brother-in-law Edward Pye of Newtown; special friends Roy Tucker of C.B.S., Jennifer Goodyear (Joe) of Hammonds Plains, Nova Scotia and Linda Jesso of St. John’s; a large circle of nieces and nephews, other relatives and many friends.
Infinite gratitude must be expressed to the residents and staff of Pleasant View Towers (4th floor, S.E.) who were Sadie’s other family since she took residency there on October 15th, 2014. The love and care shown to Sadie during her seven years at Pleasant View Towers is appreciated beyond words. Nothing comforted her family more than knowing that she was living in a beautiful facility where her every need was addressed effectively and lovingly 24-7.
Well, there was one other reality that comforted Sadie, and therefore, all her family and friends as well. That extraordinary factor existed in her beloved Cabbage Patch Doll that she called Joey. During her first six-years at the home, Joey was her constant companion. He was her little boy, who dressed in a wide assortment of one-piece newborn sleepers. To Sadie, Joey was real and needed her as much as she needed him. When one asked Sadie how Joey was doing, her favourite refrain was… “He’s quite a boy, not the murmur from him!” If kisses and hugs could give life to a doll, then Joey would have surely taken on human qualities many years ago. Joey was the lucky recipient of Sadie’s devotion, singing, care and love just like most of her family and friends had enjoyed prior to Sadie’s Alzheimer years.
