January 29, 1962 – December 9, 2012
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Tracey Kurtenbach, loving wife, mother, daughter, sister and aunt. After a long and courageous battle with breast cancer, Tracey passed away peacefully on December 9th, 2012. Tracey's tenacity and strength of will were deeply admired, and she has left an indelible mark on those who knew her. Tracey will always be remembered for her unwavering selflessness and commitment to helping others. She dedicated innumerable hours raising money for several youth-related charities as part of her role as a volunteer for the Law Enforcement Guardians; she always derived great pleasure from this work, which she actively participated in until the day of her passing. Tracey will be profoundly missed by her husband Hal, son Tyson, daughter Brina, and her numerous family and friends. Her memory will be forever held in our hearts, where she will continue to serve as an inspiration to all of those whose lives she touched. At Tracey's request, no funeral service will be held. A celebration of her life will be held for close family and friends at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (www.cbcf.org). Tracey asked that we not mourn her passing, but rather that we celebrate her life, and continue to live our own with the same passion and resolve with which she did. As such, she would like nothing more than for you to toast to a fond memory of her. Tracey, it's a good thing that heaven is sunny, because we know that you'll want to get started on your tan right away. Love you always.
