Bebaamaashiik – When the Eagle Soars

It is with great sadness that the family of Jodie Lynne Tucker, aged 35, of Couchiching First Nation passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, January 22, 2022.

Jodie was born September 11, 1986, to Tim and Arlene Tucker. Jodie lived in Fort Frances for most of her life where she created her family that she loved so much.

Growing up you could find Jodie with her sister Jenna and brother Stevie. They would be playing in their treehouse or making up some kind of dance in the front yard. They always made Steven their guinea pig. Jodie loved basketball and played until a knee injury prevented her to continue. Because Jodie and Jenna were so close you would find them dressed the same but different colors on most days. They liked to think they were twins because they were less than a year apart and loved that people couldn’t tell them apart. Jodie loved going to Zellar’s with her mom and loved to watch her dad work on cars in the driveway.

Jodie was passionate about school, after high school she went to college in Kingston for business administration. She then took a job at Seven Generations in finance to which she was very proud of. Jodie was an incredible woman. She was kind and always gave anything she had, even if that meant she went without.

When anyone needed advice or someone to listen, or an optimistic view, Jodie was there. She had a caring instinct for everyone and was always ready to give her support. In the summer you would find Jodie in the pow wow circle, dancing among her friends and family. She was well known and loved in the pow wow community for her beadwork and respect for the culture. She made her daughter’s regalia and made sure they knew the traditional way of life.

Jodie had a wonderful creative eye. Every Halloween and birthday she stayed up all night sewing costumes for her girls and nephews. She was an artist; she loved to draw and paint. You would often find her curled up on the couch with her sketchbook. We will forever miss her and the big part she played in our lives.

Jodie was predeceased by her third child Binesi; her step mother Cathy Tucker; grandparents Carol and Raymond Tucker and Albert and Cecile Morrisseau; her aunt Lisa Morrisseau; and uncle Wayne ‘Scamp‘ Morrisseau.

Jodie leaves behind to mourn her daughters Emma Bruyere (Hunter) and Frankie-Jo Smith; her parents Arlene and Tim Tucker; her sister Jenna (Todd) Morrisseau; and brother Steven Tucker (Adrianna); she was an amazing auntie to Brayden, Kayden, Noah and Liam Morrisseau, and Steven Jr. and Samara Tucker; as well as Jeff Bruyere and Chad Smith who were very important to her; as well as her partner Lee Mosley. She leaves behind her godparents Priscilla and George Simard and several aunts, uncles, and cousins, far too many to count.
