Amo, Tracy L. (Blair) (20 JUN 1962 - 4 FEB 2013)

Tracy L. Amo, age 50, of Appleton, passed away on Monday, Feb. 4, 2013, after a courageous battle with cancer.

She was born on June 20, 1962 to Jim and Marge Blair in Salina, Kan. On August 22, 1986, Tracy married the love of her life, Jim Amo, and spent 26 wonderful years together. Tracy was a proud graduate of Medford High School and the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. She also earned a master's degree in education from Marian College.

Tracy loved teaching children, and she spent eleven years at Badger Elementary School in Appleton. While there, she developed a theatrical program that she deeply cared about. Tracy always had a deep faith and was also very patriotic. She had great passions for singing, Christian music, baseball and acting as a host family for the Timber Rattlers. What Tracy enjoyed most though was watching her children grow up and excel in all of their academic and sporting endeavors.

Tracy is survived by her husband, Jim; children, Cambria, Cassy and McKenna Amo; parents, Jim and Marge Blair of Medford; siblings, Debbie (Verlan) Karpinske, Cheryl Foytek, Wendy Bockin, Cindy (Brian) Zielke, Jim (Kathy) Blair, Mark (Laurie) Blair; mother-in-law, Faye Amo; sisters-in-law, Sherry Fox, Marsha Johnson and Jayme Amo; and special friend of the family, Beth Grimmer. Tracy was preceded in death by her grandparents, Forrest and Osa Taylor; parents-in-law, Jim and Myrtle Amo; and a brother, Richard Blair.

A memorial service for Tracy was held on Saturday, Feb. 9 at First United Methodist Church in Appleton, with Rev. Dr. E. Doyle Blanton officiating. Wichmann Funeral Home of Appleton assisted the family with arrangements. In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been established in Tracy's name. Contributions can be made at any Fox Communities Credit Union location under the account title of Tracy Amo Memorial Fund.

The family would like to extend a special thanks to the staff and children at Badger Elementary School and Jim's co-workers at Orthopedic and Sports Institute for the love and care they've shown. They would also like to thank Dr. Guenther, Dr. Munson, Dr. Yazbak, Dr. Brooks and their entire staffs for their compassionate care.
