Tracy Lorraine Boyce was born on February 5, 1963 in Concord, California.
Tracy battled liver failure, and while all measures were taken to keep her with us, she ultimately passed away on the morning of Saturday, December 15, 2018 at the age of 55. She was surrounded by love including that of her husband Russel Lasley.
Tracy spent her childhood in Buena Park, California, a childhood she described with fondness and of which she often shared memories and pictures. She attended Cypress College and majored in English. She then spent her professional career working in the automotive industry and treasured the relationships she built with her colleagues throughout the years. These exact relationships are what brought her and Russel together at an Angels game 16 years ago, and have since spent their lives together in La Habra, California. In her free time, Tracy could be found at an airplane or car show, sitting on a beach with family or relaxing while reading a book.
Tracy is survived by her husband Russel Lasley, fur babies Junior, Missy and Lucky, bonus daughters Melissa Johnson and Carolyn Jackman, sisters Tammy Daley and Lynda Boyce Launer, brother Bobby Painter, two granddaughters, six nephews and three nieces, along with countless others she called family.
She is preceded in death by her parents Alvy and Barbara Boyce and Grandfather Harley Hunt.
A celebration of Tracy’s most excellent life will be held in Brea, California on the afternoon of Saturday, January 26 th at a private residence. For information to attend, please contact Melissa Johnson via phone or email. Johnsonmr86@gmail.com, 602-459-5265. Tracy’s family will spread her ashes this summer in Morro Bay where her parents were also spread.
If you would like to make a donation in Tracy’s memory, the family would like to suggest the Leukemia Foundation, a cause very dear to her heart.
Above all else, Tracy leaves behind her power to love so deeply and greatly - something felt by all those who knew her.
