Tracy is survived by her mother, Jean; her partner, Gus; her children, Kirtus, Donald, and Kelly; her grandchildren, Jonas, Linas and Karma-Lee; sisters, Darlene, Debbie, and Norma; brother, Gary; and numerous nieces and nephews. Tracy is predeceased by her father, Steve; brother, Blaine; sister, Marie; and grandparents on both sides. She remembered quite well how her two new brothers, Garry and Blaine, took her from house to house and introduced her to everyone. It was exciting; a little hectic being the "new kid in town," but it didn't take long for things to settle down and she soon became just "another kid in town." Jan Wilkinson was her first teacher. She taught kindergarten at her house, in the basement. At 7 years old, she experienced things that most 7 years olds wouldn't even dream of doing. She was working in a restaurant - Jean's Wheel Inn, owned by her mom. Her jobs consisted of clearing tables, making ice cream cones and milkshakes and so on! Needless to say, she was kept quite busy. The fall of 1976 brought some exciting news for her. Mom told her that they were going to Disneyland for Christmas holidays. They made a deal that Jean would pay for the plane ticket, but she would have to work and earn her own spending money. Every day for the next few months, Tracy would go to school do whatever homework she had to accomplish, and then would spend the rest of her day at the Wheel Inn until bedtime. Come Christmas holidays, Tracy had earned $300 to go to Disneyland. She would never wash as many dishes or haul as many garbage bags out as she did in those few months, but boy, was it worth it. During her teen years, she was very much into sports of all kinds, but her main interest was swimming. Her Mom's car put on many miles. She would drive Tracy wherever she needed to go for swimming courses. Her first summer job was in Vanguard, where she was a life guard and swimming instructor in 1982. In the fall she returned home and worked at the Rec Centre until 1985. During the summers from 1983 to 1987 she also worked at the swimming pool in Frontier. She attended school in Frontier and graduated from high school in 1984. Tracy attended Great Plains College for office administration courses. Tracy's first son Kurtis Blaine was born December 22nd 1985. She soon moved to Moose Jaw for a year and a half to be a swim instructor at the Natatorium. They returned to Tracy's hometown, Frontier, in 1989 and year later they purchased a house. She was employed with Frontier Housing and Frontier Ambulance staff. She then became a dispatcher for the taxis in Swift Current and waitressed at the Modern on the side. For the last 7 years she has been employed at the Super 8 working front desk. She loved being a house mom, helping people and animals. Tracy enjoyed watching old movies, spending time with family and friends, and many family suppers and holidays. She was very proud of her work; she was very dedicated. Tracy was a proud grandmother, "one of a kind." Very family orientated. Donations in Tracy's memory can be made to the Frontier Rec Centre. Warren's Funeral Home were entrusted with the arrangements.
