Tucky Green, 7/7/1927 - 8/27/2008


Norma Truxell “Tucky” Green

July 7, 1927 – August 27, 2008

Tucky Green, a long time resident of Deerfield Episcopal Retirement Community, passed away on Wednesday, August 27 after a brief illness. Born in Pennsylvania on July 7, 1927, Tucky graduated from Brown University in 1948. She was married for 53 years to the late Frank Green. Beloved for her wit, charm and intelligence, Tucky was a consummate housekeeper, gourmet chef, avid gardener and talented artist who was very active in both the library and the art room at Deerfield. She will be sorely missed by her many friends and her sister Anne, sons Francis William and Nathanael, daughter Felicity and grandchildren Audrey and Miles. There will be a memorial service on Sunday, August 31 at 2:00 pm at St. Giles Chapel at Deerfield, followed by a reception at 13 St. Alban's Court, Asheville.


And I do sorely miss her. I miss her so much and I can't even believe this is happening.

Such a beautiful photo of your mother. Your words are beautiful as well. It's evident that you had a wonderful mother. You're a wonderful daughter. Take good care of yourself.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. Your mother will live on through you and your family. I lost my mother five years ago under very similar circumstances. All condolences to you and yours.
