Amy M. Tucker

February 7, 1971 — January 13, 2018

Amy Marie (Harless) Tucker
February 7, 1971 – January 13, 2018

It is with great sadness that we announce that Amy passed away on Saturday, January 13, 2018 after a 3.5-year struggle with Leukemia. Amy, 46, died peacefully with her family, friends, and loving husband of 16 years by her side. Amy was born in Indianapolis on February 7, 1971 to Robert (Bob) and Mary (O’Connor) Harless. She was preceded in death by her father, Bob, in 1990.

She was a graduate of Roncalli High School with the class of 1989. Amy had various careers in retail, banking, and working in the offices of Eagle Creek OB-GYN. Amy had a special gift for explaining difficult medical issues in layman’s terms, with a caring heart. Her favorite career, by far, was being a stay at home mother. Amy loved music, reading, crocheting, spending time and traveling with her family and friends. Her favorite place to travel was to any beach where she could be warm and put her toes in the sand.

Amy’s motto was, “Try to be the best part of someone’s day.” She never met a stranger, and her heart was always open to those she encountered. She knew that you never can tell what someone is dealing with on the inside, so you must be nice to everyone. Her motto will forever remind us of the love she brought to our lives and the countless lives she touched in her short 46 years.

Survivors include her loving husband, H. Charles “Chuck” Tucker; adoring daughters, Paige M. and Riley E. Tucker both of Indianapolis; her mother, Mary Moody of Indianapolis; her brother, Bob (Anne) Harless of Indianapolis; two sisters, Beth (Chris) Bobko of Indianapolis and Becky (Jim) Coovert of New Palestine; many nieces and nephews; and her best friends: Christy Vavra, Kate Andrews, Elaine Jennings, Anita Graves and Brian Morris.

East Street, Indianapolis. The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, January 18, 2018 at St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church.
