December 13, 1960 – February 3, 2019
Paige Tucker, 58, passed away on February 3rd in Richmond, VA.
Paige was born in Richmond, VA to Paul and Virginia Tucker on December 13th, 1960. She graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in English and later got her Master’s in Public Administration from VCU. She spent most of her career working for the betterment of her community, whether she was helping coordinate volunteers, teaching at J. R. Tucker, her former high school, or working in state government. Not only did she work on award winning yearbooks for Tucker as a student in the 70s, but she also produced award winning yearbooks as the yearbook coordinator during her teaching career. She extended her love for community service beyond just her career, serving on a number of local boards, such as Hilltop Preschool, Westbriar Civic Association, and Ten Thousand Villages. She had many passions in life such as gardening, animals, environmental conservation, crafts, and reading great mystery novels. She loved her family deeply and was a wonderful daughter, sister, wife, parent and grandmother. Her kind heart and caring soul could best be personified as a butterfly visiting a daffodil and she will be forever remembered.
She was preceded in death by her parents Paul and Virginia Tucker. Paige is survived by her husband Doug, his sons Alex and Eric, her sister Paula Dutton (Jerry), her daughter Emily, husband Josh and their daughter Lily, as well as Emily’s father Steve.

Paige was a smart, kind, wonderful person. As childhood friends, we shared so many fun times together at school and church. In later years, we could reconnect like it was yesterday and have a good time reminiscing and just talking. Paige accomplished so much in her life and touched so many people. She will be truly missed. My deepest sympathy to her family—my prayers are with you.

I grew up with Paige, attending the same schools and church as well as living next door to each other for most of our childhood to adulthood. Paige was kind and strong. There are many childhood memories we share. She knew early on who she wanted to be and what was important to her. She was successful in the paths she chose. She was not afraid to change directions and try new things in her career life. I admired her for that. I enjoyed hearing about Emily growing up and then about Lily when she came along. The joy they brought to her life was always evident! She will be missed and forever remembered. My sincere sympathy to the family.
