ASHLAND – Ada O. McNamara Tucker, 89, went to be with her Lord March 15, 2013. Angels watched over her as her family said their last good-bye. Ada was born July 27, 1923, in Masardis, daughter of Ruth Robinson and John McNamara.
Ada married Reginald Tucker and they were together for 55 years. Reg was the love of her life. He predeceased her in 2005. Ada retired from Maine Forestry Service and Allagash Waterway as a radio operator and a weather tracker. She also worked for New Brunswick Power, on flood control. Ada loved living at her sons’ home at Horse Brook. She thought there was no place more beautiful. She was known for her kind and loving ways. Her home was always open to anyone who happened to stop by for a cup of coffee or a quick meal. Ada also had a strong faith in her God and tried to find time to read her Bible daily.
Ada is survived by one daughter, Nada and husband, Stephen Weiksner, of Columbia, Pa.; four sons, Jack and wife, Rose, of Las Vegas Reginald and wife, Brandy, of Black Diamond, Wash., Charles Tucker and friend, Rita Morgan, of Ashland, and John Tucker of Ashland; one son in-law, Eugene Cramer of Lee; two brothers, John and Phillip McNamara, both of Connecticut; and three sisters, June Tucker, Polly Lamb and Ruth Theriault.
