From Great Falls Tribune 12-10-2009:
Lola (Brown) Tracy, 84, of Great Falls, a former resident of Missoula and Fruitland, Idaho, died of cancer Monday at her son's home.
Her funeral is 11 a.m. Friday at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, with burial at 11 a.m. Saturday at Sunset Memorial Gardens in Missoula. Schnider Funeral Home is handling arrangements.
Lola (Brown) Tracy was born Nov. 9, 1925, in Lovell, Wyo., and raised in Salmon, Idaho. She trained as an Army cadet nurse and met her husband Trand while caring for him when he contracted pneumonia while home on leave from the military. They were married Nov. 17, 1945, and had two sons, Mark and Ralph.
They raised their children in Missoula and later moved to Fruitland, Idaho, to open a drive-in restaurant. They later sold the restaurant, and she then worked for a local doctor until her retirement. After retiring, Trand and Lola moved back to Missoula and them to Great Falls to be closer to family.
Lola was an avid gardener who loved painting, cooking, sewing, spending time with family and friends and serving others. She was very active in her church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. All who knew Lola enjoyed her loving, generous spirit.
She is survived by sons Mark (Misha) Tracy of Great Falls and Ralph Tracy of Stevensville; her brothers, Achillies "Jim" Brown, Dale Brown and Fera "Chuck" Brown; sisters Doris Hicks and Louise Rice; grandchildren, Shannon Smith of Boise, Krista (Ryan) Smith, Heather Tracy and Tyson Tracy of Great Falls, Sara (Mat) Stevenson of Missoula, Rachel Tracy of Stevensville, Joshua Tracy of Ely, Nev., and Lindsey Tracy of Spokane, Wash.; great-grandchildren Brittany (Adam) Johnson and Ashley Mauss of Utah, Ryan Reynolds of Boise, and Kevin and Kody Smith of Great Falls; and a great-great-grandson, Austin Johnson of Utah.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Trand Tracy, who passed away in 2005; brothers Scott and Larry Brown; and sister Curtie Orr.
The family suggests memorials in Lola's name to American Cancer Relay For Life , 550 N. 31st St., No. 103, Billings, MT 59101.
