Tracey Lee Moore

Tracey Lee Moore died peacefully at home surrounded by family and friends on June 25, 2018 in Knob Noster at the age of 61.
Tracey is survived by her children, Lincoln Moore and Alia Burnach, son-in-law Paul Burnach, brothers Pat Curry and Mike Curry, sister Colleen Mazzella, and three grandchildren, Kylen Moore, Jade Clay and Kalix Booze-Byrd. She is preceded in death by her parents Jim and Mary Curry.
Tracey was born on February 16, 1957 in Corpus Christi, Texas to Jim and Mary Curry. She graduated from Smith Cotton High School in 1975. She married David Moore in 1978 and settled in Sedalia, Missouri where she lived most of her life. Her daughter Alia was born in 1981 followed by a son Lincoln in 1986. She worked at the Sedalia Park Department for many years and then at Carlyle Van Lines where she retired in 2014.
Tracey was a person who left lasting impressions. Her family and friends knew her as a guidepost, someone who could always be trusted as a truth-teller even when the truth hurt. She was one of those rare people who could call you a dumb-ass and you would appreciate it and ask for more. Her heart and home were always open. She was affectionately and respectfully known as Mom to all came to know her.
A Celebration of Life is scheduled for Saturday June 30, 2018 at 1135 NE 75 Road, Knob Noster, Missouri 65336, beginning at noon and continuing until midnight. All who knew Tracey are welcome to attend.

    I did not know Tracey that well–but she was definitely someone that left a sarcastic, well-meant imprint on a person. She was always honest and a such a fun pleasure to work with. 🙂 I am sorry to hear she was taken so soon. Lots of love and prayers for her family and friends, that have had the enjoyment of knowing her, in this time of loss.

    Rest in Peace Tracy. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family in their time of sorrow.

    Memories are treasures
    Time cannot take away,
    So may you be surrounded
    By happy ones today.

    May all the love and tenderness
    Of golden years well spent,
    Come back today to fill your heart
    With beauty and content.

    And may you walk down memory lane
    And meet the one you love,
    For while you cannot see her,
    She’ll be watching from above.

    So for her sake be happy
    And show her that her love,
    Has proven strong and big enough,
    To reach down from above.

    Tracy rest in peace, I was probably on the receiving end of being called a dumbass several times, and probably needed it lol. One thing everybody knew was if you didn’t want the truth don’t ask Tracy ? ?
