Caroline Rucker Obituary

Caroline Delph Rucker, 75, of Dewey, Arizona gently and peacefully passed to her eternal rest on November 27, 2023.  She was at home surrounded by her loved ones, listening to her favorite music, song “Homeward Bound” by the Tabernacle Choir.  She was born Caroline Anne Phipps on June 22, 1948 in St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada to Ethel May Slade and Edmond Lloyd Phipps.

Caroline was a courageous, strong, and loving woman who brought joy, laughter, and happiness into the lives of everyone she touched.  Caroline met and married Samuel Rucker and the two were inseparable from that point on.

Caroline spent the last seven years of her life making a home and residing in Dewey, Arizona where she thoroughly enjoyed the gorgeous weather, building her home, and growing a beautiful garden. She spent most of her time creating and enjoying the comforts of home and creating her heaven on Earth.

Caroline was a beloved wife and a dedicated mother to her children and stepchildren.  Caroline leaves behind a legacy of courage, strength, endurance, and unconditional love.  The hole left by her absence is impossible to fill. 

She leaves behind a loving and devoted husband, Samuel Rucker; sons, Michael (Edee) Delph, Robert (Lynda) Delph, William (Billy) (and his late wife, Piper) Delph, Timothy (Tim) (Brooke) Delph; stepdaughters, Tina (Brett) Bishop, Mary Rucker, Alta (Joe) Polder, Samantha (and her late husband, David) Iszler, Mary (Wendy) (Lane) Roberts, Dawn (Julio) Gonzelez, Natalie (Joy) (Robert) Sanfilippo, Virginia (Ginger) (Juan) Cardona, Chris (Douglas) Simms ; brother, Dennis Phipps, along with 38 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren.  She was preceded in death by her parents and second husband, Ralph Delph.
