Taken from this world far too soon, Tracy Ann Schiedler died tragically in a car accident on Sept. 12, 2017.
Tracy was born to Ken and Sharon Schiedler on July 21, 1975, in Portland, Ore.
Tracy graduated from Centennial High School in 1993.
She is survived by her parents, Ken and Sharon, brother Troy, sister-in-law Kim, niece Kelley, nephew Kyle, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, extended Kamiah family, and life-long friends from Portland.
Tracy was preceded in death by her grandparents Clem and Agnes Schiedler, Martin and Edith Lukas, and uncle Terry Lukas.
Tracy moved to Kamiah in 2004 with her parents. She started working at The Hub Bar and Grill as a cook and worked there until 2007. Tracy then began working at Cloninger’s Harvest Foods in July of 2007. She was a valued employee at Cloninger’s as a courtesy booth clerk. When the community thinks of Cloninger’s, they think of Tracy. She was always there with a smile and laugh, helping anyone in need, including customers and vendors. It is evident in the amount of flowers and painted rocks accumulating in her honor.
Before moving to Kamiah, Tracy worked at La Casita, Hot N’ Now, Taco Time, and many years at Blockbuster in Portland.
Tracy was passionate about the outdoors. She loved fishing and camping. Tracy was not a hunter but loved going and spending time with her father in the woods.
She shared her beautiful voice through many hours of karaoke, something she loved to do with family and friends.
Tracy was a very generous soul always giving of herself, helping friends and family, whether it was chores, projects, homework, relationship issues, or money troubles. Even when she did not have it in her, she managed to get it done. That was just the kind of person she was.
You will forever be in our hearts and missed everyday. We love you Tracy Ann.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
Where will you spend eternity? John 3:36. This verse was close to Tracy’s heart.
