Margaret “Peggy” Tucker
Horseheads, NY,
Passed away, after a brief illness, at Strong Memorial Hospital on July 16, 2019, at the age of 90. Peggy was born in Ferndale, MI, to Archie and Harriet Rosekrans Gordon, who predeceased her, along with her husband of 61 years, Roger, their son Mark, her sisters Esther and Susie, and her brothers Archie and Richard. Peggy is survived by her daughters, Kathleen (Barbara Laney) Tucker of New York, NY, Shelley (David) MacFeiggan of Mooresville, NC and Lori (George Walker) Avery of Big Flats, NY; her five grandchildren, Kira (David) Lane of Pittsburgh, PA, Sean MacFeiggan of Concord, NC, Shannon (Nathan) Majiros of Clarkston, MI, Hillary (Drew) Sommer of Leesburg, VA, and Justin (Morgan) Smith of McKnightstown, PA.; her cherished great-grandchildren, Haleigh (Cory) Faulder, Delaney and Emily Majiros, Jonas and Fiona Smith, and her great-great-grandsons, Braydon and Fynn. All of her grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandsons were the lights of her life and she was extremely proud that she was the head of 5 generations. Peggy is also survived by her beloved brother Robert, her sisters-in-law Peggy Gordon, Shirley Redner and Geraldine Tucker, many nieces and nephews, good friends and neighbors, her former classmates with whom she had lunch monthly, her ‘second son’ Jerry Pickering, and her best friend of 75 years, Loretta “Etta” Deats. Peggy retired from the advertising department of the Elmira Star-Gazette and was a 50-year member of the First Presbyterian Church of Horseheads. She was an accomplished artist, in many ways, throughout her life, and was constantly active, enjoying traveling, playing cards, cooking and baking for her family, and loved her home and garden. Her family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and support staff on 8-12 and 4-12 at Strong Memorial for their gentle care and kindness. Visiting hours will be 11-1 pm, Sunday, July 21, 2019 at Sullivan’s Funeral Home, 365 E. Franklin St at Rt 13, Horseheads, NY, with services to follow.

It was my good fortune to work with Peggy at the Star-Gazette. She was such a professional and so friendly to others. Peggy
was a good role model. What a wonderful family to be proud of.

I am so saddened at the passing of a great lady like Peg Tucker. She truly a successful woman in every way of life.....resilient, courageous, no nonsense, persistent, and had soooo much talent. Her career with the Star Gazette was amazing. She was a shining example to many women of someone who persevered and became known, and just kept plugging away to pave a path for other women in the advertising field. She was always busy, had so many talents, and her knowledge of a plethora of things blew my mind. Her children are the perfect example of what she was. Every one with talents, perseverance, compassion, guts, and a no nonsense attitude with a humorous twist. I just have alaways loved the whole family. That is why, when her only son Mark passed away in 1990, I always tried to keep in contact.....with all of them I could. They are just great people. And because I have known them through the years, I know what they stand for, what they have endured, and why they are who they are today. So on this day, I am so thrilled to say I was part of their family...a second son to Peg, but most of all, an observer of a terrific individual whom I will miss, but know I will see her again. At her bedside, she kissed me, and told me, “ I will see you in Heaven Jerry”. What a day that will be....❤️ love you Mama Tucker.
