TARBORO, NC – Anne Haskins Tucker, 95, formerly of Ahoskie, passed away on Wednesday, January 13, 2021 at The Fountains of the Albemarle in Tarboro, NC.
Mrs. Tucker was born on January 14, 1925 to Robert Haskins and Sallie Zehmer Haskins in Dinwiddie County, VA. Anne married a local young man as he returned home from World War II. She loved spending time with time with family, especially if a meal or watermelon was involved. Anne was a devoted servant to her community and church.

After retirement, she sold real estate. She and her husband, Tommy, Sr., moved to The Fountains of the Albemarle in their later years, where they celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary and where she played bridge, introduced herself and visited with every resident.
Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Thomas T. Tucker, Sr., and son, Michael Tucker.
Anne is survived by two sons, Thomas T. Tucker Jr. and wife Judy of Greenville, NC, and R.
