Tracey Lynn  Booth

It is with great sadness that the family announces the untimely passing of Tracey Lynn Booth, 33, formerly of Sydney, NS. Tracey left us peacefully with her loving family by her side on November 1, 2017, after a courageous battle with cancer while living in Edmonton, Alberta.
Tracey grew up in Sydney where she attended school from grades primary through twelve and was a passionate and devoted team member in competitive cheerleading and dance. She graduated from Riverview High School in 2002, and pursued studies at CBU and NSCC. Tracey worked at Kenny’s Pizza and the Bonnie Prince in Sydney.
In 2013, Tracey met the love of her life, David Connors; she soon after moved to Edmonton to begin a life together. David’s wonderful friends welcomed Tracey to Alberta with open arms, and quickly became the warmth that made her feel at home.
Tracey was a loving daughter to “the momma bear” Denise Collins Booth. There was no question, that Tracey’s love for her family and friends brought her the most joy in her life. Her love and devotion to her loved ones was boundless. When she met Dave, she not only gained a loving partner, she also gained another loving family. There was a special place in her heart for Dave’s parents, Wendell, who lovingly teased her relentlessly, and Tina, who Tracey loved dearly. She loved all the Connors family as she did her own.
Tracey is survived by her partner, David Connors; mother, Denise (Ray) Collins Booth; godmother, Lynn Bond MacEachern; godfather, Mario Tarso; uncle, Bill (Nancy) Booth; aunt, Susan (Troy) Booth; uncle, Gary (Debbie) Collins; uncle, Corky (Ruthanne) Collins; uncle, Alonzo (Sandra) Collins; aunt, Cindy (Paul) Hawkins; aunt Lisa Gittens, and many cousins. Tracey will be greatly missed by Ray Rae, Amanda, Crystal, Jenna, and countless other wonderful friends.
Tracey was predeceased by her father, Bobby Booth, also paternal grandparents, Bob and Barbara Booth; maternal grandparents, Albert and Alice Collins; aunt, Cathy Booth, and uncle, Roger Roper.
Special thanks to Uncle Bill Booth for being Tracey’s support person and medical guide through her difficult road. Special thanks to Tracey’s dear friend, Leanne Connors, who helped so much, and was by Tracey’s side during her illness. Many thanks to the Koziel family and to all those who participated in Team Tracey.
Tracey’s sparkling personality had a whimsical charisma and her fascination with Harry Potter inspired her to collect every Harry Potter book series and memorabilia. Her eyes were windows to a beautiful soul and her laughter would warm even the coldest of days. Tracy leaves us rich in memories; we are truly blessed to have had her loyalty, kindness, generosity, and witty sense of humor in our lives. Know that when the sun is setting on the Mira River, Tracey is shining her light and warming our souls – her beautiful genuine spirit will live on in our hearts forever from coast to coast.
Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life will be held on Thursday, November 9, 2-4 and 7-9, at Sydney Memorial Chapel (Weatherbee’s). In memory of Tracey’s “Sparkle”, we encourage everyone to dress colorful. A Funeral Mass will be held at Our Lady of Fatima Church, Kings Road, Sydney River on Friday, November 10 at 11 a.m., with Rev. Duaine Devereaux officiating. Interment of ashes to follow at St. Anne’s Cemetery, Wallace Road, Glace Bay, NS.
A benefit dance in support of Tracey’s family is being held on Saturday, November 18 at the Curling Club, George St., Sydney from 7 - 1. We invite you to clink glasses with us in memory of our beloved Tracey.
