Tracy Lyn Bandy, age 45, of Knoxville, went home to be with the Lord Monday Feb. 4, 2013, at her home surrounded by her loving family.
Tracy was born May 4, 1967, in Knoxville, to Thomas and Rose Crawford McLemore. Tracy was a 1985 graduate of Karns High School and then attended the University of Tennessee. Tracy loved her family and her daughter, Erika, was her life. She loved her trips to Walt Disney World with her husband, Dale, and her daughter, Erika. Tracy was an only child and the many vacations to the beach and trips camping in the mountains with her parents were special times that she cherished.
Tracy attended the Park West Church of God and her strong faith and relationship with God never diminished during the past years as she struggled with her illness.
