Gloria Ann Johnson Tuck


It is with heavy hearts, we bid farewell to an industry stalwart, the beloved Gloria Johnson Tuck, peacefully concluded her journey on February 05, 2024.

Visitation: 6-8PM, Friday, February 16, 2024 at Lake Shore Funeral Home, 5201 Steinbeck Bend Dr., Waco, TX 76708
Celebration of Life: 1PM, Saturday, February 17, 2024 at Pleasant Olive Missionary Baptist Church, 1600 E League St. Waco, TX 76704, with Pastor Williams officiating.

Born from a passion for exploration and a dedication to facilitating unforgettable adventures, Gloria leaves behind a legacy woven with countless memories and cherished experiences.

Gloria was born on July 23, 1946, in Waco, TX.  For decades, Gloria served as a beacon of guidance, transforming dreams of distant lands into tangible itineraries. Armed with expertise, enthusiasm, and an unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction, she navigated the intricate maze of destinations, accommodations, and transportation options with finesse and precision.

Her office was a sanctuary for wanderlust souls, a place where dreams took flight and possibilities knew no bounds. From family vacations to exotic getaways, honeymoons to business trips, Gloria was the trusted confidant, weaving together seamless journeys tailored to each traveler’s desires.

She was proceeded in death by her father, Robert Johnson; mother, Celia Richardson (Robert); and brothers, Emmit Johnson (Carla), and James Johnson (CharlieMae).

Gloria is survived by her children, Kevin Tuck, and Tonya Tuck Jackson (Darryl); grandchildren, Terrence Raper Jr., Ebony Jackson, Maya Jackson, and Kenadie Jackson (Munchkin); great-grandchildren, Tionne Raper, and Traylon Raper; sisters, Carolyn Johnson Hicks, and Shirley Johnson; brothers, Charles Johnson (Juanita), and Herman Johnson; as well as many nieces and nephews.

Though Gloria may no longer walk among us, the memories she created and the journeys she facilitated will forever linger. Fair winds and following seas, Dear Gloria your compass may be stilled, but your spirit will forever guide us on our adventures. Rest in peace, knowing you’ve left an indelible mark on the world of travel and in the hearts of those you’ve touched.

Flowers may be sent to Lake Shore Funeral Home & Crematory, 5201 Steinbeck Bend Dr. Waco, TX 76708

    Tonya & Kevin my sincere condolences to you in this most difficult time. I truly wish I could be there with you to help celebrate the life of your Queen. I’m thankful to have reconnected with Aunt Gloria via Facebook! I was so happy to receive messages from her from time to time or receive encouragement from her about my kids, my wife and she always complimented me about my music. I can’t comprehend the weight of your loss, but know you’re in my thoughts and prayers. May God bless the home going service and bless you and the grands. Love you all.
