Obituary

Florence Inez Nave Tucker, 95, formerly of Elizabethton, Tennessee, passed away peacefully on Friday, March 26, 2021 in Plano, Texas. She was the daughter of the late Red William and Julia Goodwin Nave and was born in Johnson County, Tennessee (old Butler). In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her first husband, Lucien Garrison; second husband, Richard “Fred” Tucker Sr.; five brothers, Luther, Stanford “Peg,” Carl, Robert, Red W. Jr., and Harry Nave; and one sister, Anna Lou Burleson.

Mrs. Tucker was a long-time member of Immanuel Baptist Church, where she attended since childhood and was a founding member of the church choir. In her senior years, she moved her letter of membership to First Baptist Elizabethon. She was a world traveler, a finance career woman, a sports fan, a party hostess, a theme park lover, and an athlete. Tiny but mighty, “Memaw” jitterbug danced, golfed, and cheered her Tennessee Volunteers and Elizabethton’s minor league baseball team all the way into her 90s.

She is survived by her son, Tyson Garrison and wife Jean of Carrollton, Texas; two granddaughters, Amy (Brad) and Lindsay (Jude); five great-granddaughters, Claire, Camille, Georgiana, DeltaMay, and Kit; a step-son, Fredie Tucker (Debbie); a step-daughter, Kathy Bradshaw (Bill); five step-grandchildren; and 3 step-great grandchildren. Several nieces, nephews and cousins also survive.

A service to honor and celebrate the life of Mrs. Tucker will be held on Saturday April 3, 2021 at The North Dallas Funeral Home in Farmers Branch, Texas. In accordance with Mrs. Tucker’s wishes, final internment and a graveside service will take place in Elizabethton, Tennessee at a later date.

The family would like to express a heartfelt thank you to the staff of Prestonwood Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center and Archway Hospice for their care and attention in her final days.

Those who prefer memorials in lieu of flowers may make donations to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

Please leave the family condolences and share memories on this website.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
