She was also preceded in death by her husband, William Hayden Tuck; a brother, Clarence Green; and a sister-in-law, Penny Green.
Willie Frances was a wonderful cook and enjoyed doing for others. She had a kind and gentle spirit and was a true example of a Christian lady. Sunday was her favorite day of the week and she looked forward to going to church. She was always impeccably dressed and perfectly matched. She loved to travel and going to new places and was always herself. She lived life to the fullest and never met a stranger. She loved reading the Bible and spending time with her family, friends and her dogs, Lady and Hooch. Willie Frances was retired from World Carpet and was a member of New Zion Hill Baptist Church.
She is survived by her sons and daughters-in-law, Jimmy and Teresa Tuck and Howard and Deborah Tuck, all of Dalton; grandchildren, Donald Tuck, Tina Tuck and Jimmy McNeese, Donna and Mark Henderson, Terra Tuck and Chris and Rhonda Tuck; brother, Riley Green; sister-in-law, Jane Green Reece; special friend, Lynn; eight great-grandchildren, eight great-great-grandchildren, several nieces and nephews.
