Dessie Tucker Roper, 88, of Georgetown, Texas passed away on Thursday, Feb. 4, 2016 with her loving family by her side. Burial will follow at Fore Cemetery in Georgetown, Texas.
Dessie was born on September 9, 1927 in Andice, Texas to parents John Rhea and Martha Alice (Williams) Tucker. Hard work was instilled into Dessie at an early age, which carried over into her career. She loyally worked for the Owens Illinois Glass Plant in Waco, Texas for over 42 years. You wouldn’t catch Dessie out of the house without her hair done and her make up on. She was feisty, loyal, dedicated, caring, a sweet woman who would not hesitate to give you the shirt off her back or start dancing at the sound of music. Dessie loved life and would tell anyone that the best days of her life were the days her grandchildren and great grandchildren were born.
Dessie was preceded in death by her husband, Jiggs Roper; son, Johnny Wayne Allen; parents, John and Martha Tucker; brothers, James E. Tucker, Aubrey H. Tucker, and Olen Tucker; sisters, Rosie Allen, Faye Tucker, and Alpha Green.
To cherish her memory, Dessie leaves behind her daughter, Shirley Woodliff and husband, Carl; sister, Johnnie Good; twin sister, Essie Stephens; granddaughters, Joy Stokes and Todd Martens, Cindy Schneider and husband, Gregg, Tina Barron, Tina Dawson, and Stacey Woodliff; great grandchildren, Reagan Sansom, Blake Cox, Hailey and Lauren Schneider; as well as many other nieces and nephews.
