Joan (Gillen) Tracey
Joan Martha Tracey (nee Gillen) born 1938 in Brooklyn, NY. Born into eternal life December 9, 2020. Survived by her devoted husband of 57 years, Bernard Tracey of Yonkers, NY; loving mother of Bill, Karen, John (Deirdre) Tracey and her adored daughter Cynthia who died in infancy; cherished grandmother of Jacinta, Caroline and Eamon Tracey; beloved daughter of the late John and Martha Gillen; dear sister of John M.

Tracey; fond cousin and aunt to the Sullivan, Green and Ryan families, beloved classmate to her lifelong friend Jean (Tom) Loftus. Joan was devoted to her Catholic Faith. Her greatest delight was her children in whose happiness she rejoiced. She was especially proud of her two Eagle scouts and her children’s advanced degrees including two doctorates. She will be greatly missed, but her family knows she rests in peace with the Lord. Due to COVID-19, there will be no wake.
