Tracee grew up in Brigham City and the Salt Lake area. She was a natural redhead and had the personality to go with it. As a child, she never stood in one place for more than a second. She loved to dance and was on a drill team. Her favorite thing to do was to be with her Grandma Shirley, cooking and having grandma do her homework. Tracee adored her little sister, Jodee, and was her biggest fan. She volunteered to work with special needs kids and brought her to show and tell to talk about Down’s Syndrome.

Tracee hated school and graduated, with lots of extra credit. She gave birth, the next year to her son, Blake. Five years later, she married Mike Lancaster. They have two children together, Chase and Sophia.

By choice, she was a stay at home mom, and was a hairdresser on the side. Her favorite things to do were to watch her soaps and read gossip magazines, and color her hair. She loved tattoos and to go fishing and camping with loved ones. Her favorite place was Jenny Lake.

The best thing in her life, was to spend each day with her daughter, Sophia.

I’m so sorry, Jann. The pictures you shared here speak to her feisty personality. I’m sure she got a lot of that from her amazing mama. I’m grieving with you and share your sorrow.
