Carol “Lynn” Tracy is now at peace after suffering from a very rare illness for several years. “Stiff Person Syndrome” strikes one in a million. Lynn passed away on November 12, 2019 in Clarksburg, WV.

 

Born in Lancaster, PA on February 22, 1979, and was raised in Morgantown, WV by her grandmother, Doris Tracy Beard. She was preceded in death by her grandfather Sam Tracy and her grandmother Doris whom she dearly loved. She was also preceded in death by Robert Tracy, her father. Lynn found comfort from those that supported and loved her. Special thanks to the following families; Altovilla, Freligh, Policano and Closson, who were always there for her.

 

Lynn is survived by her life partner, Clara Altovilla; her brother Frankie Burton; and her caregivers and best friends, Maik and Kyle.

 

Lynn touched many lives with her kindness and generosity, and her tenacity to fight for years a disease that took her mobility and caused her great pain. Lynn was skilled in so many ways as a hairdresser, caregiver, and contractor until her illness. She understood others and was wise beyond her years. The transition from being strong and vibrant to the effects of her illness caused her to be isolated from the people and things she loved. Lynn liked X Box, art, and her feral special cats. She took care of her pets and took part in her SPS group online throughout her illness. She will remain with us in our hearts and through the good she did for others. Lynn defended immigrants, minorities, and was outspoken in her defense of the marginalized and anyone being disrespected. She believed that love was the way.
Please honor Lynn’s memory by helping someone in need. Visit some one that is homebound or show love and support to someone  you know.

 

A private memorial dinner is being held in her honor. Lynn’s requests are being honored by Amos Carvelli Funeral home.
