Denise “Dee” Tracy, age 64, of The Villages, FL and formerly of Gallitzin, PA, passed away peacefully on Sunday, December 11 with family by her side after a heroic battle with cancer. Denise was born March 13, 1958 to Michael and Marie Anzidei in Derby, CT. Denise was a career Army wife and lived in Belgium, Germany and Italy along with multiple stateside locations. Denise loved to travel having been to Hawaii, Bermuda and the Caribbean.

She was an employee of Wal*Mart working at their Johnstown, PA and Ebensburg, PA locations. Denise retired after 15 years as a Department Manager and moved to The Villages in 2020. She truly loved living in the Villages. She loved the many friends she had made in the short time that she lived in the Villages. Denise loved cats and recently rescued a Siamese cat, “Sushi” from the Cat Crazy Villagers. Sushi certainly brought smiles to Denise.

Denise is survived by her loving husband Randy of 42 years. She is also survived by her children, Christine Dufour of Altoona, PA, Wayne Hoyt of Kissimmee, FL, Roxanne Gaskins of Colonial Heights, VA and Randy Tracy Jr of Pittsburgh, PA. She had 8 grandchildren, Danielle Gaskins, Josh Gaskins, Adam Yarbrough, Adrian Tracy, Wyatt Dufour, Sera Tracy, Cameron Yarbrough and Catherine Dufour. She is also survived by her sister Karen Lefevre (Art) of the Villages. Denise was preceded in death by her parents.

The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the doctors and staff at Moffitt Cancer Center GI Oncology Clinic, Tampa, FL and to the Florida Cancer Center, The Villages.

There will be a Celebration of Life and interment at Bushnell National Cemetery in March 2023.

    Denise, I hope you always felt love when you were with Rick and I. Early in your illness we made a pack to never say good-bye and I will not now. I know to whom you gone and It is my hope that I can live my life well enough to meet you there again. I picture you hugging your mom and your Auntie Rose that you missed dearly. I can only image the glory your experiencing at this moment as heaven is rejoicing and celebrating that God sent his son to earth so that each of you in heaven could experience God promise of everlasting life. That we all who live in the knowledge and live in Christ will get to see what you are right now!
    I doubt if I live to be 100, I will ever have lasagna as good as yours! But please don’t mention that to my mom when you see her in heaven…. but you can tell her I continue to try to live up to her expectations.
    You definitely left a hole here on earth, and left lessons for each of us who knew you so well. Your strength through your walk home amazed me! Those who mourn you and can’t get past the why, need to focus on the” Who” you gone and the grace in which you did.
    I thank you for your friendship and will relish the day we meet again. Everyday forward will be a day closer to our reunion. Like we always ended are calls - Love you.
