Tracy Zimmerman of Coupeville, Wash. peacefully passed away at home from breast cancer February 3, 2021. When first diagnosed in 2015 she was told she was terminal and that she only had a few months to live. She refused to accept that and with the help of Dr. Inoue and his fine staff at the Providence Regional Cancer Partnership she lived another 5+ years.
Tracy was born in Everett, Wash, the only child of Davis (Ed) Edward and Ruby Ann Bradshaw and is survived by her husband of 37 years Jack Zimmerman of Coupeville, daughter Michelle of Kelso, Wash, daughter Beth of Bellingham, Wash and 5 grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her son James Fraser and both parents.
After residing in Everett in her early years, Tracy and her parents moved to Marysville, Wash where Tracy graduated from Marysville HS in 1969.
In 1981 Tracy and Jack moved to Whidbey Island and shortly thereafter Tracy began employment with the transportation department of the Coupeville School District as a bus driver. For a number of years she drove regular routes, athletic trips and other miscellaneous type trips. The last years were her favorite as she transported children with special needs. She developed closed relationships with both the children and their families. She retired after 25 years.
Although health issues restricted participation, Tracy was a charter member of the Whidbey Island Nordic Lodge. A special thanks goes to the personnel at the Cancer Center in Everett and to Hospice of the Northwest for their comforting assistance. Per Tracy's wishes and because of the pandemic situation there will be no visitation or public services.
