Tracy loved her family beyond measure and devoted all of her time and effort to raising her daughters. She was always willing to extend a hand to friends, family and others in need. She loved to cook, decorate the house, volunteer at her kids activities and even coached two championship volleyball teams for the 7th and 8th grade girls of Holy Family.
