Sara Margaret McClung Tracy

Greenwood - Sara Margaret McClung Tracy, age 82, died on November 17, 2020 at home under Hospice care. She was born on March 2, 1938 to Marion Skillman McClung and Eva Sonora Huth in Fairfield, Ohio. She moved to Indianapolis, Indiana where she was a model for L'Oreal when she met and married her husband, William L. Tracy. They were together over 60 wonderful years and had four daughters and one son.

Sara was small in stature, but great in spirit and endeavor. She overcame many obstacles in her life. She broke a leg while riding her bicycle when very young. On her 50th birthday, she broke a pelvic bone when hit by a car while crossing the street. She had lung cancer in 2004 and beat it. Sadly, her recent diagnosis of liver cancer was too advanced and incurable.

Sara graduated from Indiana University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education. She loved children and was a great teacher. She was secretary to the Indiana Secretary of State and his deputy before moving to the Legal Section of the Corporations Division. She was also legal secretary to her attorney husband for most of their married life.

Sara loved people and never met a stranger. She could meet them once and remember their names and family years later. She loved reading and dining out with family and friends. She was a Girl Scouts volunteer and supported many charities. She also held all five stations of Eastern Star.

Besides her parents, Sara is preceded in death by her brother, Ronald M. McClung; her son, Todd Neal Tracy, who was born prematurely on December 2, 1961; and her son-in-law Ronald Richardson.

Sara is survived by her daughters Meshia Richardson, Tina (Steve) Banicki, Lisa (Greg) Brassie, and Tara (John) Tippett as well as six grandchildren and six great grandchildren, who fondly know her as GG. She is also survived by her husband, William "Bill" Louis Tracy, who will keep the memory of the two of them together inside him and will never say goodbye.

Visitation for Sara will be Monday November 23rd from 2 pm until 6 pm at Wilson St. Pierre Funeral Service and Crematory, Greenwood Chapel, 481 Main Street, Greenwood, Indiana followed by private funeral services on Tuesday November 24th.

I had the pleasure of getting to know Sara, because my son Joshua married her granddaughter Jennifer. What can I say, I loved sitting with her and talking for hours about anything and everything. She was a wonderful lady, I just loved listening to her stories about when the girls were little and Bill was in school, and how she would only have so much money for food so she would go to the butcher and he would always give her the best deals because he knew she had 4 little ones at home to feed and a very slim budget. Also at the last birthday party for our grandson, loved hearing about her and Bill's wedding night, so simple, but yet so much love. I am so glad I had the pleasure to get to know this lovely women, God added another wonderful angel to his flock. Although she will be missed terribly here on Earth we know God has a special place for her now beside him, and with all of her loved ones that have went before her. Please God put your loving arms around Bill and the family through this difficult time. Soar High Sara Tracy we will miss you down here but you will never be forgotten. Much Love , the Autry's.
