JACOBER (nee McClure):
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Tracy (Teresa) Jacober (nee McClure) on Monday, June 25, 2012.
Tracy was born on September 30, 1950 in Edmonton, AB and moved to Powell River, BC as a child. In 1975 she moved to Medicine Hat, AB where her journey began. Tracy was a hard worker and worked at several businesses in Medicine Hat. In 1983 she started her career with Canada Post as a letter carrier. She loved her job and was very proud to accomplish a position that was extremely hard. She had 3 children she loved and cared for.
On April 11, 1987 Tracy met the love of her life, Warren Jacober, and along with Warren came 2 bonuses – his sons Jeff and Kyle. Later Warren and Tracy joined in marriage and began a wonderful life together. In 1993 they invested in a retirement property in Elko, BC. Every weekend they made the trip to their property in BC to enjoy the beautiful nature along with some much needed R&R. In 1995 they moved to BC and she was transferred to Canada Post in Fernie, BC. In 1997 Tracy was diagnosed with a peripheral vascular disease which resulted in her going onto disability and taking early retirement. She was disappointed but accepted the life challenges that were thrown her way.
Tracy was an amazing wife, an awesome mother and was adored by her grandchildren. When she set her mind to something she followed through every time, regardless of the obstacles she faced. She was always a strong willed person and her family was and will always be proud of her. Tracy had a true passion for animals and loved her pets, treating them like they were her children. She was known to be a “busy body” who enjoyed playing pranks, and was always smiling and giggling.
Tracy was predeceased by her parents Art and Phyllis McClure, her firstborn son Timothy (Timmy), her brother Dale McClure and her sister Ardis Sibley. She is survived by her soul mate and best friend Warren, her son Michael Kosolofski, daughters Brenda (Rob) McDonnell and Laura (Kirk) Keller, stepsons Jeff (Amy) Jacober and Kyle (Robyn) Jacober, and grandchildren Riley and Jenna McDonnell, Ember and Eden Jacober and Carter and Beckett Jacober.
She will be sadly missed by all her friends and family who gave her strength, love and purpose during her battle with cancer.
To honor Tracy’s request no service will be held. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to SIDS – Calgary Chapter or to the charity of the donor’s choice. Arrangements entrusted to Cherished Memories Funeral Services Ltd.
