Unfortunately due to COVID-19, Tracy will have a virtual service and then the Family will have a private service at a later date to be determined.
Tracy Lyn Billingsley passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 30th, 2020. She is survived by her husband, Aaron L. Billingsley of the home; daughter, Kayla E. Billingsley of the home; in-laws, Gordy and Vicky Brown; sister, Crissy Huffman of Madison, AL.; father, Gary Peterson of Oldsmar, FL.; and several nephews. She is preceded in death by her mother, Patricia D. Peterson. A Private Celebration of Life Service will be held at a later date.
In her 42 years on the earth, she impacted so many people. She graduated from Saint Thomas Aquinas High School in 1997 before going to the University of Alabama. She was such a proud Bama alumni and fan. Tracy married Aaron in 2003 and they began their journey in the Army. The family ensured 11 moves in 17 years together and several schools and deployments. In 2006, Tracy became a mother to Kayla. This was far and away her proudest moment. She loved Kayla with every fiber of her being and nothing brought her more joy than Kayla.
Tracy was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in November 2008 while Aaron was at the end of a 15 month deployment. For twelves years Tracy persevered through countless appointments, 5 surgeries, months of radiation, and chemo every three weeks for 12 years. During all this, she fought with true grit and kept a smile on her face throughout. She is a shining example of how we should all live our lives, serving God and loving others. Tracy impacted people of all ages and races. So many people blessed the Billingsley family during this battle but most would agree she helped them as much as they helped her. She loved to give back and had a heart of Gold. Although she is gone from this earth, she is one of God most precious angels now and her spirit will live on forever.
