Tracey was a multifaceted person. Beautiful, bright, educated, energetic, literary, and athletic, particularly in swimming. She especially loved literature and poetry and was an inspiring English literary teacher. She loved to travel and she had a quirky sense of humor. She was a “people person” – outgoing, warm, compassionate and a friend to all – no matter if they were popular or unpopular, or the fits or the misfits. She touched many and brought people together.
Tracey was a wonderful person. She reached out to people and had so many friends. She was caring and really made an effort to get to know people, which is unusual in this fast moving world. She will be missed by so many people.
