In Loving Memory

Tracy, Carol F.

June 9, 1939 - April 11, 2024

Carol F. Tracy passed away peacefully on Thursday, April 11, 2024 surrounded by her children. Devoted wife of the late Andrew R. Tracy, loving mother to Bridget Wolff, Andy Tracy, and Kathy Tracy; and Mo Mo to Alexander and Aidan Wolff, Elaine and Ann Tracy, and Emily and Garrett Hulsey; beloved aunt, neighbor, friend, and nurse.

Carol grew up on Oregon Avenue in South St. Louis as the big sister to Lois Hunleth. She attended St. Anthony’s grade school and high school, and then earned her nursing degree. She met and then married Andrew R. Tracy on April 16, 1966. She and Andy raised their three children on Meramec Street and she was actively involved at Resurrection of Our Lord Catholic Church and School. She was very crafty and creative, exploring sewing, ceramics, cake decorating, cross-stitching, quilting, painting, piano playing, drawing, cooking, and baking, to name just a few interests. In 1995, she and Andy moved to Helm Drive where they became the unofficial greeters of the cul-de-sac, chatting with neighbors as they passed by. She retired in 2002 after 40+ years working as a labor and delivery nurse, perinatal nurse, and Lamaze coach and is still remembered fondly by many of her patients (and their now-grown children) and students. Upon retirement, she was a doting Mo Mo to her 6 grandchildren who have vivid memories of playing games and puzzles, including Blitz, with Mo Mo. Carol will be remembered as a devoted “firefighter’s” wife of Andy; caring daughter of the late Mildred and Frank Johns: supportive sister, sister-in-law and aunt to her family as well as Andy’s family; dedicated mother and Mo Mo to her children and grandchildren; and kind friend and neighbor.

Services: Visitation at Kutis Affton Chapel (10151 Gravois Road Affton, MO 63123) on Saturday, May 11th from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., with a brief service at 11:30 a.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to March of Dimes.

  1. As a schoolmate and lifelong friend, there are so many memories, the cabin and your mom helping with delivery of my 6 kids, among many other memories to mention here. May she rest in peace along with *Big Andy”

  2. Along with Carol helping with the delivery of my sister’s 6 kids, she also helped with the delivery of my 2 children. I remember her coming to our house on Osage St along with several other of Rita’s friends. Everytime my wife and I go to the Zoo and the Train passes, I think of Andy and waving to him as he drove past. Carol and Andy together again. R.I.P.

  3. Carol and Andy were friends of mine and my parents. I have had the please of knowing them for 2/3’s of my life! You are missed but we will always remember you !!!
    Rest In Peace !

  4. Dear Tracy Family,
    Your Mom was a big part of my young adulthood. I started working at St. John’s in the early 70’s as a teenager. Carol was a mentor and role model for me. She loved to tell stories about Bridget, Andy, and Kathy, and the stories reflected the busy fun life you all shared during that time.
    One memory that stands out is Carol bringing her wedding album into Labor and Delivery. It was certainly a testimony to the exciting life that they were starting together – in particular one picture with Carol chasing Andy! I was impressed with the fun and joy in that scene, no staid wedding album for Carol and Andy.
    Over the last few years Andy was faithful in making sure that Carol got to our St. John’s nurses get togethers, bringing her and then disappearing for a few hours until he was summoned to return. The two of them were quite a team – and will be missed by many.
