Barbara Howe Tucker

August 14, 1933 — June 19, 2019

Barbara Howe Tucker (Aug-14, 1933 - Jun-19, 2019)

Barbara “Bobbi” Tucker died of pulmonary failure on June 19th, 2019, at her home in Lincoln. She was 86.  

She and her husband, Ted Tucker, built their home brick by brick. It is in the lovely garden overlooking the pond that their life began together in 1955. 

Bobbi’s parents, Arthur and Gertrude “Marcia” Howe, with sisters Debbie and Priscilla of Ardsdale, NY, found their way to “Rabbit Bluff” in East Orleans, MA – their summer home. Under Marcia’s guidance, they took great joy in lithography, printmaking, portraits, and watercolors there.  Bobbi graduated from Sullins Academy in Virginia and Colby-Sawyer College in New London, NH, where she founded the Buzzin’ Dozen group. Later, she began a career in specialized eye training and then worked in real estate in the greater Boston area for 30 years. 

Her children, Jesse Tucker with wife Sarah, Lincoln Tucker, daughter Jennifer with husband Tom Perley together with her granddaughter, Lindel Tucker, and grandson, Sam Perley, will carry on her legacy of gardening, cooking, and caretaking the family summer home on Cape Cod. 

She had a life as “Momkat” filled with music, flowers, puppies, chickens, and ponies. 

Services were private.
