Born March 29, 1981 in Fort Wayne, IN, Tracy was an enthusiastic, competitive athlete excelling in many sports, including basketball, track, and golf.
Tracy cherished her close friends and laughing about the day’s events and past experiences. Tracy could find humor in almost anything. Her laugh was infectious. She had the unique ability to quickly size-up people with uncanny accuracy, yet she appreciated others’ differences and could get along with everyone. Tracy enjoyed gardening, travel, and dining with friends and family.
To us she will always be ……Forever Young.
