A note from her son:

“It’s with a heavy heart that I must share this news… my mom, Tracie Davis, has passed. She has fought the good fight. Mom you have been my rock. I love you so much. Please keep me and my family in your prayers.
Thanks everyone, Byron “

  1. Linda McCleskey says:

    I first met Tracie years ago, at a New Year’s Eve celebration, at New Life, in Lacey. One of many, who would entertain us that night. She was gonna bring the comedy. And, bring the comedy, SHE DID. Tracie’s spot-on imitation of our choir director had us in the floor! Evidently, they had known one another since childhood. She had me in tears, from laughter. I also had the privilege of being blessed with Tracie’s sermons and her love of God. ❤ To her family: Thank you and thank God for sharing her life and love. She was truly one in a million. Please accept my condolences on the passing of one of His best.

  2. Martha Davis says:

    I can’t say enough about this wonderful Woman of God. She had been a TRUE friend over the years. I will miss her presence here but she will stay in my heart forever.

  3. K. Hayes says:

    To the family of Tracie,
    This is the first passing I have no grief. Like many, I have said “good bye” to a bevy of folks in recent years. Tracie lived with joy and gave joy to us. She is “sister goals”. I admired the educator in Tracie. She wanted all to be excellent. I pray your hearts are comforted and your smiles remain.

  4. Lucas Smiraldo says:

    Tracie was the emcee for Tacoma Refugee Choir’s performance at the outdoor location of the LeMay Museum. She was the same whimsical light spirit she had been at the many other events I had attended.

    She was a true homegrown comedian that built her career brick by brick and laughed at herself and those dear to her with zero acrimony or negativity. She kept on soldiering, hosting and performing thought her illness which was such an expression of her strength. She left her mark and she leaves her mark ongoing. She was pure Tacoma grit and irreverence in a reverential package. She was an original and we were lucky to have her for brief time on all our stages. Much love goes out to the family from me and I believe our choir and this city. Thank you for making us crack that smile even when we felt like staying at home.

  5. Stephanie Flagg says:

    She fought the battle with so much grace! Never wallowed in self pity, never questioned or doubted God. She gave until her very last breath. She loved with all her heart. I have thanked her for the LIVE lessons she taught me, and for the laughter she allowed me and others to have. ❣️

  6. Pam Bridges says:

    I will dearly miss my frequent texts and enduring friendship of the phenomenal Miss Tracie Lynn Davis who taught me so much with her humor, humbleness, deep faith and focus on living every moment of her life to the fullest. As does everyone whose life she touched, I have soooo many fond memories of Tracie but in particular her comedic act that found her flinging her wig across the stage, a personalized trip to my backyard where she created my AKA pink and green pour paintings embellished with Ivy and Pearls and her bucket list trip to Honolulu, Hawaii which we joyfully experienced together. I could go on and on with memories where she made me feel like her “BFF” which was truly an honor and a gift. Rest in Paradise Tracie…you may be gone from this earth but you will NEVER be forgotten..I will always love you!

  7. Barbara Lane says:

    Tracie was such a warm and loving woman of God. Her illness did not define her but was an opportunity to witness to the awesomeness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. My sister you will be missed. My prayers and condolences are with Byron and family for your loss.

  8. Carrie Nurse says:

    She authentically let her light shine in all that she did. Tracie transmitted God’s light of love every time I had the privilege of being in her presence…always humble, welcoming you with love and care. She loved God, people, and life. So grateful for seeing how she shared her love with others. I pray that those she touched in this life will, like Tracie , reflect our gift of life with the spirit of love, faith and hope that Tracie demonstrated. Thank you for sharing your light Tracie.

  9. Rosa Franklin says:

    Tracie kept us all laughing with her dry sense of humor. She touched many lives and put up a gallant fight against a disease
    that we are working hard to defeat. In spite of her illness, she kept
    going bringing love and laughter to uplift those in her presence.We will miss her. Deepest sympathy to her son and
    and members of her family.

  10. Tela Jones says:

    I met Traci at the womens retreat few years ago. She was the Comedian, and funny she was. I follwed her every since that day. When I saw she loved Chucks, I had my friend make her a pair of black bling. I was so happy she got to enjoy them. She is surely missed. RIP beautiful. God bless her son Byron and may healing come to your heart in time.

  11. Rosezetti Lassic says:

    From the first time I met Tracie we were the like sisters because she would always tell me about her adventures and how much she enjoyed her life and helping all people I just want the family to know I am praying for strength for them and be strong for each other

  12. Sherwanda Beck-Atkinson says:

    My deepest condolences to the family and friends. Tracie was such a kind, welcoming and entertaining person. I really loved that she was so approachable and down to earth. She was always such a joy to be around. You could truly see her love of life and people. Life is so precious! I am honored I had the opportunity to meet Tracie Lynn Davis!

  13. Rev. Wilhelmina Daniel says:

    I will miss Tracie. She made our State Convention choir rehearsals and events so enjoyable. She kept the humor going. I had a connection with her because she was in New York and knew my niece from 106 and Park. Blessings to the family.

  14. Ameedah Hasan says:

    Condolences to Bryon and family. Tracie was our Champion, motivator, supporter and friend. She will always remain in our hearts! Ms Ameedah

  15. LaTanya Brooks says:

    The reason I know Tracie is because she never met a stranger! It felt like I knew her my whole life too and only met her after moving back home in 2001 and the crowd I ran with she knew from Bethlehem. Awesome Awesome Awesome Human Being is all I have to say. She is at the top of my list of the real deal lady, friend, woman of God, comedian, and again just an awesome person. Prayer to Byron – reach out to all that love she left in you, with you (smile). We stand with you in support, love and lots of prayers going up so blessings will continue to pour down on you with comfort and God’s love. So sorry for this loss. #UntilWeMeetAgain #RIP #RIH

  16. Sharon Williams says:

    I was introduced to Tracie as a comedian when she was featured at New Life Baptist Church Women’s event on Puget and Bigelow in Olympia. I believe the next time I saw her down the road she was directing her church choir.
    So dynamic and sharing of her godly gifts. Thank you. My condolences to her dear son, family and heart friends.

  17. Shaudel Short says:

    Although I was introduced to Ms. Tracie through my best friend, she was always beautiful and kind to me. I enjoyed watching her direction during the few choir practices attended and it was a wonderful surprise seeing her at the 2019 Essence Festival in New Orleans, LA. She will always be a beautiful person to me!!

  18. Donna Manier says:

    I will miss you dear Tracie. You neve knew a stranger and when I invited you to my birthday celebration one Christmas, You came. You joked about me living up so high in the trees, you thought you would fall. You didn’t and could go look over the railing, that was always a joke with us. You were a good, kind, considerate, and loving friend no matter what you were going through. My memories of you are precious and will be in my heart forever.

  19. Wanda Webbe says:

    Tracie was a champion for arts education for the children of Tacoma. Her indomitable verve, humor, grace, insight & fearlessness inspired all of our students to reach for the stars. We will miss you so much!

  22. Jaron Townsend says:

    Wow. Had no idea my good friend Tracie passed. Was trying to find out if she had comedy shows coming up and find this out. RIP Tracie.

  23. Anthony williams says:

    Tracie was my older cousin that I have only met one time in this life.And Tracie left me with a impression of care and love and safety.I visited the west coast from down south with my grandparents as a lil kid I was so comfortable around Tracie her presence would light up anywhere we went for the fourth.I reached out to cousin Tracie again in 2020 not knowing she was going through so much and now it sadens me to know she is gone now and o have no other chance to feel her positive energy…………..
