Joan Hill Tracey


HILL TRACEY HILL TRACEY Mrs. Joan Hill Tracey, 84, died peacefully on April 30, 2018, at her home in McCormick, S.C.

The memorial service was held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 5, at the Lutheran Church by the Lake with Pastor Jim Kinsler officiating.

Joan was described by almost all who knew her as the epitome of a southern lady, which is not surpris­ing considering she was born Janu­ary 17, 1934 in Richmond, Virginia to Thomas and Lillian Hill. She later moved to Augusta, Georgia at the age of two after her father’s death.

Joan was a graduate of Richmond Academy and North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She married Jerry on September 20, 1958 in Augusta, Georgia. Joan worked as a teacher at Fleming Elementary from 1955 through 1960. In 1963 Joan and Jerry moved their family from Au­gusta to Parkersburg, W.V. where they raised their three children.

Joan was a lifelong Lutheran and very active in all churches she at­tended, starting with Resurrection in Augusta. Joan and Jerry would later help establish the Lutheran Church on the Lake in McCormick, SC.

Joan is survived by her husband, Jerry; her three children, Steve Trac­ey and his wife, Dana, Daryl Tracey, and Jane Tracey; and her five grand­children, Savannah, Claire, Madi­JOAN son, Grant, and Juliette.

Joan was preceded in death by her parents, Thomas and Lillian Hill, as well as her brother, Thomas E. Hill II.

Beggs Funeral Home, Lincolnton, was in charge of arrangements.
