Audra Lauryn Tucker

August 18, 1999 - October 10, 2018

Audra Lauryn Tucker, 19, was born on August 18, 1999, at McAlester Regional Hospital.
She is survived by her parents, Larry and Betsy Ross-Tucker; brother, Ross Tucker and wife, Kayli; brother, Ryan Tucker and wife, Kayla; nephew, Jax Tucker; maternal grandparents, Mike and Betty Ross; maternal great-grandad, Ira "Babe" Ross; paternal grandparents, Pat and Don Bard; paternal grandparents, Bob and Melia Tucker; uncles, Matt Ross and wife, Shelly, and Bobby Ray Tucker and wife, Patti; cousins, Mattilyn Ross, Alex, Paige and Bryce Tucker; godmother, Phyllis Doyle Williamson, and numerous great-uncles and great-aunts.
She was preceded in death by her great-grandparents, Mollie Ross, and James and Inez Douglas, and Linda Ralston, longtime friend and nurse of eight years.
Audra was a lifelong member of Choate Prairie Baptist Church.
At an early age Audra looked up to her brothers and became a die-hard athlete, playing both softball and basketball. Starting at age 4, Audra played on numerous softball teams, both travel and summer, playing first base and beginning to pitch before retiring her glove. She remained close with her childhood friend and teammate, Kimberly Motley.
She was a member of a girl scout troop, attended pre-school and kindergarten at Frink-Chambers School and first and second grades at Crowder School before facing a 10 year-long battle with cancer and its many complications. Never once questioning how her life changed, her faith and love for God always shone so bright. You could see the very love of God in her eyes at all times. She displayed immense courage and strength while maintaining a positive attitude. Through her journey, she was an inspiration to all that came to know her, whether in person or by hearing her story, near or far.
The family will greet friends on Friday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Choate Prairie Baptist Church in Indianola.
The funeral service will be held on Saturday at 2 p.m. at Indianola High School Gymnasium. The final resting place will be at Choate Prairie Cemetery in Indianola.
Pallbearers are Ross Tucker, Ryan Tucker, Matt Ross, Bobby Ray Tucker, Bryce Tucker and John Ross.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Audra's name to St Jude's Children's Hospital.
