She loved to cook, decorate the house , volunteer at her kids activities and even coached two championship volleyball teams for the 7th & 8th grade girls of Holy Family.

Tracy was a warrior, surviving an ovarian cancer diagnosis for 8 years, beating the disease multiple times in order to be an active part of her daughters lives for as long as possible.
