Her contagious laugh, great sense of humor and her hard working, caring soul is what I will remember most about Tracey. She worked for me at the Fremont Dots store #193. I truly worked with the greatest team of people of which she was a huge part. We were a work ‘family’. My heart is so sad for her Dad, her sisters and brothers.Please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers during this time of sadness.
I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of your daughter. I wish I could say the hole left in your heart will heal one day, but it won’t. However, the rough edges will soften a bit with your loving memories. Blessings to you.

Please accept our deepest and most sincere condolences.
My daughter and I worked with Tracey and we truly enjoyed every minute she was around. She was a smart, funny and loving wonderful lady that will be missed.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family.
I know this is way late but I just found out. I worked with Tracey at Peregrine Semiconductor. She was a bright light in an otherwise dim world. Her zest for life was contagious, as was her laughter. Though, we parted ways long ago, she was never, nor will ever be forgotten. I am very fortunate to call her a friend and to have had her in my life. My condolences on your loss. Know that she touched a lot of lives in California and made a difference just by being Tracey.
