Floyce Cook Tucker
Floyce Cook Tucker, 96, formerly of Vaiden, loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother went to be with the Lord on January 20, 2018, in Jackson where she had lived in a nursing home since December of 2014. She was born in Vaiden on March 10, 1921, the daughter of the late George and Minnie Gant Cook. Floyce was preceded in death by her husband, William Herman Tucker, a daughter, Brenda Kay Tucker, five sisters, Willie Zelma Welch, Marguerite Townsend, Faye Townsend, Loree Cook and Parilee Dill and two brothers, Rufus Cook and Luther Cook and son-in-law, Roland Rutledge and daughter-in-law, Peggy Tucker.

Life was never about her; it was about God, family and her love and generosity for others. Floyce was a simple woman with a huge heart who loved everyone she met. While residing in Vaiden, she was an active member of Shiloh Baptist Church, where she had many friends and enjoyed Sunday School and worship services. On Tuesday, January 23, the funeral service was held at Shiloh Baptist Church in Vaiden, MS, with the Rev. Doug Warren officiating. Burial was at Midway Cemetery; however, there was no graveside service. Sebrell Funeral home of Ridgeland is in charge of the service. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Shiloh Baptist Church, 9240 CR 31, Vaiden, MS 39176. The family would like to thank her caregivers at Compere’s Nursing Home and Pax Hospice.
