Falmouth — Edith R. "Edie" Tucker, 87, died Sunday July 9, 2017, at Gosnell House in Scarborough. Born in New York, N.Y., she was a daughter of Rexford and Nancy Newell Daniels.

Edie was a well known artist in the Portland area. She lived life to the fullest and opened her home to many. She fully embraced the arts and was an avid, active supporter of the Greater Portland arts scene. Whether sculpting in her Portland studio, ushering at a local theater, contradancing at a country grange hall or patronizing an artist’s studio opening, she was always smiling, positive, supportive and encouraging.

She is survived by her children, Ellie Tucker of North Yarmouth, Sam Tucker and his wife, Karen, of Great Diamond Island, Edie Dubord and her husband, Steve, of Portland and Newell Tucker and his wife, Cheryl, of Brunswick; along with her sisters, Bobbie Oliver and Harriet Gardner and her husband, John.

She is also survived by eight grandsons and step-grandsons and three great-granddaughters.

A celebration of Edie’s life will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the arts.
