Tracy loved taking care of her family and was an amazing cook. She had the ability to see the best in everyone even when it didn’t stand out and welcomed her chosen family with open arms. She was an involved mother and grandmother, and always tried to make the best memories out of any situation. She enjoyed meeting new people and creating friendships online.
She was an avid game player and was especially good at word games. The matriarch of our family will be missed by everyone who knew her and especially her family.
Private family services were held at Hohner Funeral Home.
