Tributes for

Tucci, Madeline Mary

Tucci, Madeline Mary was born in Montclair, NJ, on 8/17/51, Madeline attended schools in various states until finally settling in Orange, CA in 1968. She attended Villa Park High School because of special classes for the deaf. She then graduated from Goldenwest College with her AA degree. Madeline enjoyed painting and was a wonderful artist. She also loved: bowling, watching her soap operas, listening to music, dancing, doing puzzles, and playing Farmville on Facebook. She was very devoted to the Lord and Mary, and prayed the rosary daily. Even though she couldn't get around much, she was always very social with the people who came to the house. She would be sure to give everyone a hug and would often join in on a game of darts, foosball, and even an occasional crossbow with her nephews' friends…she was good-hearted, thought of others first, kind, devout, and a lovely, wonderful, giving person. She had great strength in dealing with the adversities in her life. She will be greatly missed but is now with mom and dad - and whole again. After a long life of dealing with multiple medical problems, Maggie passed away on 9/3/11 and is at eternal rest with our Lord. Maggie touched the world in many ways. We have found out that they are having a Mass said for her in Verona, NJ, Japan, and Singapore! One of the people she met on Facebook, Jessie Ng, said they will offer a mass for her in Singapore next Saturday at 6:15 pm Singapore time. Survived by her three sisters, Marion Billington, Colleen Gonzales and Liz French, and her brother, Allan J. Tucci - and all their families.
