Tracy was born July 2, 1965, a daughter of the late Edwin and Margaret Flanagan Dunton. She was a graduate of Marcus Whitman Central School District, Class of 1984. Tracy enjoyed listening to Family Life Radio and loved to worship through music. She had a very close church family and loved to be with them. Tracy’s special bond with her “Sisters of Christ, are Sisters for life” and their adventures they went on. Tracy liked to photograph and watch all the wildlife around her home. She loved gardening and when that became a challenge, Skip suggested to her to plant flowers in individual pots, and he would put them wherever she wanted. Tracy did that for the last 4 years. She gives Skip all the credit for that and for many things. She loved Skip with her whole heart. He stayed with her through her 11 year ALS diagnosis and never left her side with the second diagnosis. Tracy felt very blessed having Skip in her life and that he is a God loving man. Sometimes you’d see Tracy out and about with her niece Lani. There was always some kind of drama that would happen. It was never a dull moment with those two. A lot of laughter and great times together.

Heartfelt condolences to Skip , Helen, John and to all of Tracy’s family, Tracy’s kindness and very caring soul will be missed deeply, she always put others first and never had a bad word to say about anything. She was a fighter in her illness , but yet continued to keep her beautiful smile. You are now resting Tracy and God has given us another Angel! Love you !
