Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, July 23, 2014 3B VITAL STATISTICS/LAW and ORDER OBITS, from page 2B Thursday evening July 10, 2014. Her loving family was at her side. Born in Salinas, she was raised and educated in Salinas and in Arizona, following her parents who were in the produce business. In 1955 she was crowned Miss Glendale, Arizona. She met the love of her life, Jack Tucker in Salinas and, as their love for one another blossomed, the couple was later married and to this loving union sons Jim, Jan and daughter Lisa were born. Always there for others, Barbara served as a Cub and Boy Scout den mother, Blue Bird Campfire Girl leader and swim team mom; she enjoyed spending time with her family on the beach at Santa Cruz along with camping. First and foremost a loving wife and mother, Barbara could regularly be found making pots of soup for ill neighbors and always had a full cookie jar for the neighborhood kids. With a veracious thirst for learning she would read about anything and everything, be it tilling, landscaping, sewing, art, collectables or any other thing that may have come to her mind. The family resided in Salinas until 1975 when, following a vacation drive, the couple found Indian Valley. Together they purchased the Crescent Hotel where she set about restoring and transforming it into a local landmark. Her cooking is still talked aboutthroughout Plumas, Sierra and Lassen counties along with the many visitors she touched throughout her and Jack's time of ownership. Barbara loved to master new things and then move on to another. She is a former Real Estate broker who found great pleasure in matching people to their new homes. In 1985, Barbara started a co-op with a number of other local ladies in the little cabin next to the Crescent Hotel and Crescent Country was born. The store soon grew into the hotel as its popularity grew and in 1993, Jack and Barbara bought the half-acre of property across the street from the hotel. Barbara's vision transformed the little house into a traditional home with a cottage garden, then tripling the size of Crescent Country by turning the large metal building into the landmark gift shop it is today. The store has never been all business though as it became a place where lifelong friendships have been made along with untold lives being touched. In 2006 Barbara was diagnosed with lung cancer, told it was in remission on four different occasions, she handled each time of its return with the same grace and dignity that she led her daily lifewith, never complaining. Barbara wanted to share the following with others. "Perhaps I can take heart that we a/'e all connected and I may still have things to contribute of Indian Falls; the jewels of her later life, her grandchildren Charlie, Lauren, Michael, Jesse, Courtney, Kurtis, Kelina, Kelsey, Cassady, Camilyn, Sean, Alex, Jessie and eight great-grandchildren, two step-daughters Kim, of Alaska, and Teri, of Quincy, along with a host of dear friends.
