Anna grew up in West Virginia and moved to Washington, DC where she met and married her beloved
husband Preston Tucker. She went to work as an Executive Secretary for the Department of Agriculture,
where she was proud to serve for over 30 years.
Anna was a loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, cousin, and friend to
many. Her twin sons Kim and Mike were her pride and joy and always brought a smile to her face.
Anna enjoyed singing in her church choir, drawing, and bowling. She was an excellent cook, known by
everyone for her homemade pizza. She also enjoyed playing Santa at the local McDonald’s in Clinton,
MD for many years. Additionally, she hosted parties every Christmas Eve at her own house for her
friends, relatives, and many neighbors. She loved life and her house was always open to anyone.

Anna is survived by her sons Kim Tucker (Lucy) and Mike Tucker (Gale); sister Betty Zalovick;
grandchildren Amber Jennings (Steve), Wayne Tucker (Shannon), and Michael Tucker (Vickie); and great
grandchildren Brayden, Emma, and Ryder, and devoted friend Sheila Holmes. In addition to her parents,
