Tracy Lee Sowers passed away peacefully on November 7, 2021, at Carle Foundation Hospital, Urbana with her loving mother, sister, and nephew by her side.
Tracy was born on September 23, 1971, in Urbana, to Franklin D. Sowers and Linda Ragland. She is survived by her mother Linda Ragland (John), her sister Tammy Sowers, her nephew Justin (Jessica) Sowers, and her grandnieces and nephews: Myah Mattingly, Justin Jr., Clara, and Drake Sowers. Her grandparents, Franklin and Clara Mae Sowers also survive. She was preceded by her father Frank, her uncle Bob and maternal grandparents.
Tracy worked in the contract cleaning industry for the past 25 years, 23 of those years in management. She joined the ESS Clean, Inc. team as area manager in 2012.
Tracy grew up in Urbana and attended Urbana High School. She loved spending time with her family (including her beloved black Labrador, Wade). Game Night with her family was a very special time as well as fishing and swimming at the Lake. Gardening was another favorite pursuit. A hobby she and her sister Tammy enjoyed doing was the adult paint by number paintings. Tracy loved sunflowers also.
Tracy could be tough as nails and ornery too, but her heart melted with children and dogs especially. She was also an accomplished cook and griller.
