Mrs. Tracy taught my son and she was a true gem. She was always so kind, helpful, and supportive. She was one of those teachers who stays on your heart and you cross your fingers all your kids get the pleasure to be taught by her. We are so very sorry for your loss.

Mrs Tracy taught my youngest daughter in second grade. Because my daughter was the youngest in her class, the school suggested that Samantha be tutored to keep fresh and to help her speed up her work process. She continued to tutor her and it paid off as my daughter did wonderful in middle and high school. My oldest daughter had to go to summer school and Mrs Tracy tutored my oldest in geometry. She come when my mom was watching the kids and they enjoyed talking to one another. Her son sometimes came with her. She was the best second grade teacher and I was hoping she would be able to teach my granddaughter. I ran into her at a DHS basketball game and updated her on my daughter Sam and she was so happy to hear that she was doing well in college. She was truly an inspiration to all that she taught.RIP
Dor was my son Dalton’s teacher, mentor, friend, and now guardian angel. She was my BFF as she called me, and my confidant. She was always there when I needed to talk at all hours of the night. We were “coach pals” I will miss buying her a bag every xmas and hearing how Tim will have to compete with my gift lol I will miss her random texts saying “check your porch” and her dropping off chris’s old clothes for dalton and hearing about how grown up chris is now and how proud she is of him and when she is going to visit him next. She would always have a smile on her face no matter what kind of day she was having. I will miss my BFF dearly and I know she will be missed by others so very much as well. My thoughts and prayers go out to Tim and Chris and her girls. She was an amazing woman who left us way too soon.

Mrs. Tracy was my 4th grade teacher and we had so much fun. With all the holidays that dhe would dress up for and all the parties she would hold in class Mrs. Tracy truly wad the best. But I will never forget the times that Mr. Tracy would come visit and how he would have to duck to enter the classroom everyone enjoyed that. Mrs. Tracy you are the reason I am strong and always will be. I love you and you will always be remembered in our hears.
