Lola Faye Tucker, age 89, passed away Sunday, January 17, 2021 at Dogwood Trails Assisted Living and Memory Care in Palestine, Texas. She was born to Hiram Joe and Jimmie Faye Sumner Parsons August 20, 1931 in Celeste, TX.
Faye attended Wolfe City High School, then she married Thomas Franklin Tucker. Her family was important to her, so she took a job working in the school cafeteria while her children were young. After her children were grown, she worked in the semiconductor industry assembling circuit boards for Recognition Equipment. In her spare time, she enjoyed gardening, raising flowers and vegetables, going to church and being with her church family, and feeding squirrels and birds. She did not like it when the hawks were watching her bird feeder.
Faye is survived by her children: Layne Ray Tucker of Dallas, Thomas Franklin Tucker, Jr. and wife Marylyn Hoy Bennet of Rusk, Theresa Darlene Fannin Yanosh of Delight, Arkansas, Donald Hubert and wife Mary Durr Tucker of Round Rock, 9 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother Robert Wayne and wife Martha Ann Parsons and her sister-in-law Nancy Parsons.
She was preceded in death by her parents, siblings Billy James and his wife Clara Parsons, Joe Morris Parsons, son Joe Edward Tucker, her husband, and two grandsons, Shayne Ray Tucker and Matthew Fannin.
The graveside service will be conducted by Jonathan Marcoulides, son of Layne Ray Tucker, at 1:00 P.M., Saturday, January 23, 2021 at Mt. Carmel Cemetery, Wolfe City, TX. In the event of bad weather, we will move the service to the chapel at the cemetery. There will be no scheduled visitation; visitors are welcome to come by Owens funeral home to sign the book.

We could not make it, but wanted to send our condolences to Tommy, Marylyn and the family. A donation was made to The United Methodist Church.
I am so sorry for the loss of your Mom. I have always looked up to you for guidance when we worked for the same company.
Thank you so much for the note. It is always good to hear from a longtime friend, even though we tend to loose touch with folks as we travel through life’s journey.
Mary and I send our love and sympathies to you and your family on the loss of your mother.
Though we never were privileged to meet your mother, we feel like we get a glimpse of her through you and the good person you are. I know she and your dad had to be proud of you.
You all will be in our thoughts and prayers.
Britt and Mary Holley
