Alvera Pincus


Alvera “Tucky” Pincus, 87, passed away on May 1, 2024 after a brief illness.  Tucky was born in 1937 in Queens, NY. In the early 1950’s Tucky was a pin up model as well as a showgirl at the Tropicana in Las Vegas, NV.

She married the love of her life, Al, in 1961. Together they raised their family in Huntington, LI, NY.  Tucky was an avid animal lover, who rescued countless numbers of dogs and cats over the years, including her beloved golden Lab/Shepard mix Pax whom she loved for 17 years. Tucky had a flair for interior design which was reflected beautifully in her homes.  Tucky & Al moved to Bucks County, PA in the early 90’s where they renovated and refurbished a historic Victorian farmhouse. Here they enjoyed family and grandchildren for many years.  They were both active in land preservation and along with other concerned neighbors created the Buckingham Concours D’Elegance antique car show to raise funds to preserve open space.  Al & Tucky’s storybook romance lasted 57 years and beyond.  Al passed in 2016 and Tucky now joins him where they are once again united for eternity.

Tucky is survived by her beloved daughters, Elizabeth Libutti (Julius) Amy Bridges, beloved brother James Witteck (Janet), beloved grandchildren, Alexander Libutti, Amanda Pincus and Nicholas Libutti.  In addition she is survived by her beloved step children, step grandchildren as well as many beloved nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews. She is also survived by her beloved Persian cat, Pinky, whom she loved for 13 years.

Tucky was preceded in death by her loving parents, Samuel and Alvera Witteck, her beloved siblings, brother Richard Witteck and sister Marilou Perniciaro.
