Memorial planned for Monroe artist Genevieve Tuck

Longtime and well-known Monroe artist Genevieve Tuck, who at the age of 87 was named Artist of the Year by the Arts Council of Snohomish County, will be remembered for her passion for oil painting and how she’d spend hours and hours capturing the world as an outdoor or “plein air” artist.

Tuck died Aug. 26 at 100 years old.

A memorial service is planned for 2 p.m. today at Snoho­mish United Methodist Church, 2400 Lake Ave. SE, Snohomish, where she celebrated her 100th birthday. A reception is scheduled to follow in the fellowship hall.

Donations can be made in Tuck’s name to the Snohomish County Arts Council.
