Lily Tuck

June 15, 1928 to March 7, 2013

Lily Tuck, age 84, passed away peacefully at the Penticton Hospital on March 7th 2013 with family by her side. Lil enjoyed being part of the Summerland community for the last 20 years. Some of her favorite activities included picnics at Sunoka Beach, golf and Scrabble. More recently she enjoyed a good game of shuffleboard at Angus House and playing cards with her family and friends. She will be remembered for her big smile and competitive spirit. Lil was a loving and caring person, ready to bake a fresh loaf of bread for those in need. In her early years of raising a family, her home was always a hub of activity and the social centre for extended family and friends. She was courageous and hard working, evident in her efforts to raise 5 children by herself after losing her first husband, Sam Hingston in 1958. She was married to Charles Taylor in 1975 and for the next 24 years enjoyed travelling and golfing. After being a widow once again for several years, Lil met George Tuck and was happily married for the next 9 years. Lil and George were members of the Alliance Church in Summerland and her faith in God was an utmost priority. Lil was predeceased by her loving husband, George, in November 2009. She will be lovingly remembered by her five children and their spouses: Jeanette (John) Martens of West Kelowna, John (Brenda) Hingston of Nanaimo, Carol Steinke of Ladner, Judy (Bill) Dogterom of Southern California, Robert (Dina) Hingston of Coquitlam: as well as 14 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren, and a brother and 4 sisters: Ernest Martz of Chilliwack, twin sister Dorathea Agate of Surrey, Hilda Martin of Summerland, Hedy Sewell of Summerland and Becky Dyck of Chico, California. Funeral Services will be held on March 30th, 11:00am at the Alliance Church in Summerland, to be followed by a light reception. In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes may be made to the Gideon Memorial Bible Plan or a charity of your choice. Condolences may be directed to the family at Providence
