Obituary for Leacy Wahl (Tucker)

Leacy Tucker Wahl died peacefully Friday night in Wyomissing at the age of ninety-nine. The cause was sudden cardiac death. She was born January 15, 1921, in Welch, West Virginia, the only daughter and oldest child of John Randolph and Eloise Beckwith Tucker. She married the late Arthur Julius Wahl in 1950. They moved to Wyomissing with their two children in 1960.

She attended St. Margaret’s School in Tappahannock, Virginia, and graduated from Welch High School. She attended Hollins College in Roanoke, Virginia, for three years, leaving before graduating when the United States entered World War II. During the war, she worked for the Army Maps Service at Wright Field, Ohio. She made her debut at the Bachelor’s Cotillion in Baltimore, Maryland.

Mrs. Wahl was the granddaughter of Beverley Dandridge Tucker, Episcopal Bishop of Southern Virginia, and his wife Maria Washington Tucker, as well as Judge Frank Beckwith and Leacy McDonald Beckwith of Charles Town, West Virginia. She was the niece of The Right Reverend Beverley Tucker, Bishop of Ohio, and The Most Reverend Henry St. George Tucker, 19th Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church. She was a direct descendant of Richard Henry Lee, who introduced the Resolution for Independence at the Second Continental Congress in 1776, and a collateral descendant of George Washington through his brother John Augustine.

She was known for her joyous laughter and her warmth and unfailing courtesy. She was an avid bridge player, continuing to play four games a week until the last year of her life. She was a member of Christ Episcopal Church in Reading, where she served on the Vestry and the board of the Episcopal Church Women, taught Sunday School, chaired the Christmas Bazaar, and volunteered for many years at the weekly Rummage Sale.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Arthur, and three brothers, John Randolph, Frank Beckwith, and Augustine Washington Tucker. She is survived by her son Richard and his wife Daphne, of Charles Town, West Virginia, her daughter Beverley and her husband Mark Sherrid, of Mamaroneck, New York, and two grandchildren, Gregory and Eloise Sherrid, as well as by many nieces, nephews, cousins, and her sister-in-law, Jacqueline Miles Tucker.

The family will hold a private funeral service, to be followed by a memorial service in Charles Town, West Virginia at a later time. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Christ Episcopal Church or to Planned Parenthood at the Reading Medical Center.

Edward J. Kuhn Funeral Home, West Reading is honored to serve the family.

I am deeply saddened to learn of Leacy's passing. I knew her a bit from church, working at the rummage sales with her and through ECW, but I mostly got to know her from the past 3 1/2 years I've been taking communion to her each month at The Highlands. I quickly learned in our conversations that she used to sing in the church's girl choir and as I have been singing in the choir for some time now, I asked if she'd like us to sing together. She requested Now the Night is Over, which is how we always ended our time together. I added Onward Christian Soldiers and How Great Thou Art. Leacy sang with a strong, clear voice, often jumping into the hymn before I was ready! We also went through the church's bulletin, just as though she were attending a full service and she beautifully followed along and read all the appropriate responses. She always thanked me for coming, commenting on how nice it was to do this. I last saw her in February. I had just been thinking of her, too, the morning I learned of her passing, wondering if The Highlands was going to loosen its visitor restrictions like Country Meadows was and hoping that I could start seeing her again. I miss her. I would love to be informed of her Celebration of Life in case I'm able to attend. She was a great lady.

My sincerest condolences on the loss of your mom. I have many fond memories of working with Leacy on bazaar projects and rummage sales at Christ Church. We also had good times at the YR club for lunches and New Years Eve dinners with your dad.
