Diane Tuck

February 22, 1958 ~ January 16, 2023 (age 64) 64 Years Old


Our beloved Diane Tuck, 64, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family, on January 16, 2023. Diane was the youngest of eight children, born in Helena, Montana to Nolan and Nelda Tuck on February 22, 1958.

She attended school at Central Elementary, Helena Junior High and graduated from Helena High School in 1976.

She went on to attend Brigham Young University, LDS Business College, Salt Lake Community College and earned her bachelor's degree at The University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Diane also took several classes over the years to continue learning and honing her skills and talents.
She began working at age 10 for the family business, Ambassador Toy & Gift. Here, she had many memorable experiences and learned valuable lessons that helped shape her strong work ethic. Diane was a valued, dedicated, and dependable employee for a number of other companies including Logan Knitting Mills, Thiokol, Getty Oil, Montgomery Watson, City Creek, and most recently, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from which she retired in June 2018.

Diane was a talented and creative cook, cake decorator, photographer, graphic designer, jewelry maker, secretary, mentor, and friend. Diane thoughtfully shared her gifts and talents with family and friends, making beautiful and delicious foods, wedding cakes and grape juice, to name a few. She was also a kind and patient teacher, willing to share with others, in the most natural ways, things she had learned. With her infectious faith-filled optimism, she helped inspire those around her with the confidence to learn, try new things, and make it through hard times. Her heart-warming smile and gentle kindness made those around her feel genuinely cared for and loved. Some of her interests included: swimming, crocheting, canning, juicing her homegrown grapes, music and singing, classic movies, and making her deliciously famous Christmas pecan rolls. Diane generously shared her time, all her talents, and interests in ways that richly blessed the lives of her family and friends. She was the ultimate gift giver!

She loved to travel and was a master at planning and organizing vacations for herself and the loved ones she shared them with. She loved to visit family. She visited many places including, but not limited to: Alaska, Europe, England, Mexico, Hawaii, and the Church history sites. She enjoyed organizing family reunions, gatherings, and many wonderful sisters trips.

She was a compassionate caregiver and companion for her stepmother, father, and oldest sister Arlene.

She was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and loved serving in a variety of ways. She served as a temple worker in the Salt Lake Temple with her sister Linda, as a chorister, primary teacher, Relief Society teacher, and pianist.

Diane was preceded in death by her parents; and very recently, her sister Arlene; and brother, Jim. She is survived by her sisters, Armelia Johnson (Gordon), JeNae Lay (Denny), Carol Smith (Tony), Linda Vander Veur (Grant); brother, Wayne Tuck (Theresa); 27 nieces; and nephews and many great-nieces and nephews. A private family graveside service will be held.

Special thanks to the many family members who share Diane’s gift of a compassionate heart, who spent time selflessly serving her; her niece, Jenele, who lived with her as a loving companion and aid, and Erika with her husband, Keith, who gave her a wonderful home to live in and enjoy. Special appreciation to Inspiration Home Health and Hospice, and the amazing Rolling Hills Ward members who have lovingly and consistently ministered to and cared for Diane these past 2 years.
