Tikeia Tucker, daughter of Harold and Vicki Tucker, was born on August 25, 1984 in Seattle, WA. She departed this life on Monday, November 9, 2020 at the age of 36.
Tikeia professed her life to Christ at an early age at Pilgrim Baptist Church in St. Paul, MN.
Tikeia graduated from Saint Agnes School in St. Paul were she was a thriving student with great ambitions and sang in the school choir. She also attended Rasmussen College, studying to become a paralegal, and Hamline University studying psychology.
What did Tikeia love the most? “Reading and Cooking” At the age of 18 she took an interest in cooking. Tikeia was not afraid to try new recipes on her family, whom she called the “Guinea Pigs”. At the end of the tasting, her family always gave her a thumbs up for the good food. She was a loving, gifted, talented and excellent cook. Also, she loved reading and frequented several poetry events in her spare time. When it came to family, Tikeia made it her priority. She loved mocking her Grandma with a lot of laughter and spending precious time with her mom, dad and boys. She made it a point to “Give back” by volunteering her time with Feed My Starving Children.
She was a devoted and nurturing mother to her two young kings, Lijah and Naiim. She was such an avid reader that she had instilled in her boys, the importance of reading and how their dreams could never be taken away with knowledge.
Tikeia is preceded in death by her Grandmothers, Gracie Owens and Thelma Travis. She leaves to cherish her memory, two sons, Lijah Tucker (12) and Naiim Berry (6); her loving father and mother, Harold and Vicki Tucker; brother, Marlon Tucker; grandfather, Jimmy Owens; niece, Navellah Tucker; nephew, Navarus Tucker; and a host of loving great-aunts, relatives and friends.
