  • Born on October 28, 1959 in Chicago, Illinois, United States.
  • Passed away on June 22, 2018 in Anaheim, California, United States.

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Tracy Johnson-Lyles 58 years old, born on October 28, 1959 and passed away on June 22, 2018. We will remember her forever.

Please feel free to add notes, stories or photos - she impacted so many during her life.

Tracy truly lived life to the fullest through life's simple pleasures. She loved spending time and being with family and friends, traveling to new places, taking remembrance photos and enjoying all of what precious life has to offer. Tracy had a remarkable ability to touch people in a profound, positive and meaningful way. Family and friends were Tracy's passion and delight. Her extremely kind, caring, thoughtful, compassionate heart and contagious laughter will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

Lets strive to make a difference in others lives by expressing the same characteristics that she displayed treating others as yourself.

Grace and Peace unto you all and your loved ones.

"There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living."

Tracy will always be in our hearts and minds...loved and missed. Since she departed, there's rarely a day that goes by, that I don't think of her or notice something that reminds me of her. She wore the most fragrant cologne and perfume, and always complimented me on mine. As this year comes to an end, I'm certainly reminded of the beautiful way she always decorated her office, from Halloween to Christmas. Things are not the same, without her; I hope we meet again!

"The world got a little bit darker today for there was always a twinkle in your eye. The world got a little bit quieter today for there was always a rumble in your laugh. The world got a little bit crueler today for there was always a kindness in your heart. The world got a little bit harder today." ~Anonymous My heart hurts with such loss. I'm comforted knowing I will see you again. Until then, I know that you will watch over us and we will continue to feel your presence.

Tracy was lower kind and compassionate she carried her happiness with her and shared. If freely. Before she left we hugged, and both said I love you. I am gratefully for knowing Tracy these many years. We will miss you deeply.

It was a week ago today that I heard you say in your sweet voice “Have a nice vacation” as you walked away. I never imagined it was goodbye. I will forever miss you.

Tracy came to Braxton in the Fall of 1996, as a Q.A. Clerk, and advanced to the position of Production Supervisor, within a short period of time. She possessed the nature of a "Go Getter", from the inception of her employment with the organization, and that never changed. She had a desire and a willingness to help anyone with anything necessary, and she always put forth her best effort in all that she did. Tracy was very giving and generous, and unlike many, never forsook an opportunity to express her love. Whenever she sent me an e-mail or text, she closed with, "XOXO", or she would write, "I love you Chris". During times when she had to be away from work, she would call and at the close of our conversation, she would tell me that she loved me, and I reciprocated in like manner. Her laughter could be heard from one end of the office to the other, and it was quite infectious. Whenever someone reached a milestone of any nature, Tracy was the one to go out and buy a most appropriate card; cake or whatever...she was just that thoughtful. I looked forward to seeing her car in the mornings, because with her being at work, I knew MY day would be filled with compliments: "I like your shoes; that's a cute top...what fragrance are you wearing...it smells so good!" Braxton will not be the same without the presence of Tracy Lyles, but her memory will forever reside in our hearts and minds. May the Lord of Hosts comfort her family and friends, (her non-biological family), as we mourn her passing. May He grant us peace. "Absent from the body; present with the Lord".
