Theresa M. (Kipping) was born on August 1, 1958 to Jean Marie Kipping. She married the love of her life, John Hansen on October 12, 1985.

Tracy as everyone called her, worked for the Corp of Engineers and Service Rubber before she went to work at Rock Island Electric Motor Repair. She later went to work at Jumers Casino Rock Island before returning to Rock Island Electric.

Tracy's first love was her family and countless friends. Anyone that knew Tracy knows she loved her Chicago Cubs and on November 2, 2016 they became World Series Champions. Tears of joy were shed that night as she witnessed the "curse of the goat" come to an end. She was a avid golfer and loved sports in general. Tracy completed her first Ragbrai in 2012 and enjoyed competing in triathlons, mud runs and anything she felt would challenge her.

The family would like to thank the nurses and patient care techs at Unity Point Health- Trinity West 4 south and Dr. Garneau for their kindness and compassionate care during this difficult time.
