Tracy Hanton

A non-denominatial memorial service honoring Tracy will take place July 5th, 2015 at the Church of Truth in James Bay beginning at 2:00pm. A light lunch will be served.

She is predeceased by her Father Frank Hanton and survived by her Mother Joyce, brothers Lloyd (Marie) and Craig (Donna) and their families.

Tracy was born in Winnipeg MB, with a heart abnormality that the “experts” at the time predicted would, at best, only give her a few years to live. Apparently someone forgot to tell Tracy that; after heart surgery at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto at age 2, again at age 16 and once more at 21 years of age the writing was on the wall as to who was running the show.

Tracy and her partner of 30 years Ken Penzes endured a few more procedures and surgeries in the years that followed, allowing them to grow older together first in Regina, SK then Victoria BC and finally in Sidney BC where Tracy fell in love again, this time with the Town. She loved to shop the stores on Beacon Ave, and savoured the beauty of the Saanich Peninsula, in particular the wildlife and nature. Her camera was always at the ready and she captured much of it, reviewing it time and time again to her delight.

Tracys dog Leo (the true Love of her life) said his goodbye to her at age 14 just 10 days prior to her passing. Together forever in heaven, may their walks be everlasting and off leash.

In lieu of flowers please donate to the WWF, BCSPCA or your local animal shelter.
