The following obituary appeared in the Intelligencer Journal, Lancaster, PA, 22 April 1996, page B-3.

[W85261] Beatrice G. TUCKER deceased, age 87, of 211 Willow Valley Square, died Friday at Willow Valley Manor Healthcare.  Born in Bellwood [PA], she was a daughter of the late Charles and Virginia Mae ESTEP McELWAIN.  She was the wife of William TUCKER, who died in 1953.  Mrs. Tucker was a registered nurse for 39 years.  She worked for Lennox Hill Hospital in New York from 1934 to 1960 and for Barnard College in New York from 1960 to 1973.  She was a member of Willow Street United Church of Christ and the Methodist Hospital Alumni of South Philadelphia.  Surviving are a sister, [W85262] Helen A. LOVELESS of Bloomfield, NJ, a brother, [W85263] James McELWAIN of Walkerville, MD and a grandaughter.

We do not know the birth order of Beatrice, her sister and brother.  We have arbitrarily assigned the above letter/number designations until other information is received.   We assume Beatrice died somewhere in Lancaster Co. PA, possibly Lancaster city.  There is a small town south of Lancaster called Willow Street.
