(nee Cook) On April 13, 2022, age 71, lifelong Haddonfield resident; Beloved wife of Frank J., III; Loving mother of Frank J. IV (Holly) of Portland, OR and William of Brunswick, ME; Dear sister of the late Bill Cook and Pat Rock and sister-in-law of Cathy Cook. Tracy put her heart and soul into her family and they loved her deeply for it. There’s nothing she would not do for those she loved, both family and friends.
Tracy worked briefly in the pharmaceutical industry, where she met her husband Frank in Pennsylvania. But she was known for being a dedicated, inspiring teacher of chemistry and biology at Shawnee High School for several years. She also helped educate at CCD and Elizabeth Haddon Elementary School, where she gently guided young people on a daily basis.
Tracy was an avid Philadelphia sports fan, rooting for the Eagles and 76ers with her boys through thick and thin. She also enjoyed playing golf with her family foursome and with the 9-hole league at Tavistock Country Club, where she was a member. Her affinity for music was expressed through song on a daily basis and when singing with the group Local Vocal. Tracy put her heart and soul into everything she did, knitting countless gifts for her family, tending to her beloved songbirds each season, helping raise her family dogs, and cooking something delicious each day. She was endlessly curious and found beauty in the details. Tracy loved sunset swims at the beach while traveling and meeting new people throughout the world, which fueled her compassion for humanity. Her faith in God and resolve to live her life to the fullest never wavered. Her strength was unmatched.
Tracy’s family will receive friends on Wednesday, April 20th, 10-10:45 AM at the Lutheran Church of Our Savior, Wood Lane & Wayne Ave., Haddonfield, NJ; where her Service will follow at 11 AM. Interment, private. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in honor of Tracy may be made to the Last Prisoner Project, 1312 17th St. #640 Denver, CO 80202 (www.lastprisonerproject.org).
