Michelle Ann (Pasch) Tracey, Janesville, WI (1961-2014)
January 27, 1961 - May 20, 2014
Michelle Ann (Pasch) Tracey, age 53, of Janesville, passed away unexpectedly Tuesday, May 20, 2014, at her home. She was born Jan. 27, 1961, in Sparta, WI, the daughter of Roger L. and Eileen A. (Lydon) Pasch. She moved to Janesville, as a little girl, and she attended schools in Janesville, graduating from Parker High School with the Class of 1979. On July 5, 1986, she married Robert P. Tracey at St. Patrick's Catholic Church. Michelle had worked with her husband and his family at Tracey Oil Co.; and after they leased their business, she and Robert built and opened Cone Zone in Milton.
Michelle's family was first and foremost in her life, and she especially loved her two grandchildren! The Cone Zone employees were her second family, and she poured her heart and soul into the business. She was very much a "people person" as anyone knew when meeting Michelle! Her proudest career achievement came this past year when she scored a perfect 100 on the Health Dept. Inspection. She always looked forward to her winter getaways in Mexico and Florida! She was a longtime member of St. William's Catholic Church.
Michelle is survived by her husband, Robert; her two daughters, Mary Cate (Sean) Casey-Schmidt and Maggie (Sean Henneberry); her two beloved grandchildren, Kolton and Aubrey Casey-Schmidt; her parents, Roger and Eileen Pasch, all of Janesville; her sister, Kelly (Dennis) Kramer of Caracas, Venezuela; her brother, Roger (Lisa) Pasch, Jr. of Eau Claire, WI; her in-laws, Paul (Barbara) Tracey, Mary Ann McCann, Peter (Sindy) Tracey, Stephen Tracey, David (Janet) Tracey, Cathy (Tim) Rooney, and Eileen (Carey) Stuckey; many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews, and by many dear friends. She was preceded in death by her maternal and paternal grandparents; her mother and father-in-law, William and Alice Tracey; her two sisters-in-law, Mary Beth Tracey and Mary Foelker Tracey; and her brother-in-law, John Tracey.
Funeral services with a Mass of Christian Burial will take place at 12 p.m. on Saturday, May 24, 2014 at ST. WILLIAM'S CATHOLIC CHURCH, 456 N. Arch St., with Fr. John Auby officiating. Friends may call on Saturday morning from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. at the CHURCH.
