Tracey Lynn Sigurdson
Passed on July 23, 2021
It is with great sadness that the family of Tracey Lynn Sigurdson announce her passing on Friday, July 23, 2021, at the age of 57 with family by her side.
Tracey will be lovingly missed by her husband of 34 years, Miles, and her children Scott (Maegan), Bradley (Amber), Thor (Charmaine), grandson Axel and her “little sweetheart” dog Daisy. She will also be fondly remembered by her mother Judy Rothwell, siblings Kim (Marty), Debbie, Tim (Corie) and Chad, and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and so many friends.
Tracey is predeceased by her father, Edward and in-laws Thor and Betty Sigurdson.
Tracey was born on April 28, 1964 in Winnipeg, MB to Judy and Edward Rothwell and grew up in Woodlands, MB. She attended high school at Warren Collegiate Institute where she excelled at academics and played on as many sports teams as she could. As a teen she loved spending time at rodeos and barrel racing with her horse Geronimo. She went on to acquire post-secondary education in accounting and utilized her degree while doing the book work for Sig’s Grill, and working at institutions such as MTS and Stonewall Pharmacy.
In 1987 she married her best friend, Miles and soon after they purchased their beautiful property in Warren, MB to raise their family. Tracey always remained active and it was a difficult task to convince her to ever sit down. She enjoyed outdoor activities such as archery, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, hiking, quading, canoeing, golfing and spent many days out-fishing her family on the lake.
Tracey finished her career with her dream job as Fundraising Accountant at Oak Hammock Marsh for Ducks Unlimited. She loved the view outside her window and walks through the marsh where she could watch her birds, ducks and all the little critters she loved so dearly. Her co-workers at Ducks Unlimited were a second family to her, and she will especially miss little Louie who would frequently visit and brighten her days. Tracey would spend endless hours in her beautiful gardens tending to her flowers and was a talented artist, she loved painting the beautiful world around her, particularly all her flowers and birds.
A special thanks to the IERHA Palliative care team, nurses Christine and Meagan, Dr. Graham, the staff at Selkirk CancerCare, Dr. Jill, Brad and Laura Woods, Hermon Heuging, Brian and Heather Oughton, Diane Gardarsdottir and countless friends and family who held her hand through this journey and fought alongside her. Thanks to all who sent their love as well as meals and flowers, especially our friends at Ducks Unlimited.
Tracey had the purest of hearts and the most contagious laugh, she had a gentle spirit and the most beautiful soul. Her smile was sure to light up any room and her caring nature was like no other. She will be missed more than words could ever say but never, ever forgotten. She loved this life, but we know she will love heaven so much more.
The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Ducks Unlimited Canada at www.ducks.ca Select “Donate Now” to make donations on the “Give in Memoriam” page and ensure to include the intent for donation as “In Memory of Tracey Sigurdson.” A picnic table in memory of Tracey will be displayed at Oak Hammock Marsh.
Our sincere condolences to all of the family. Sincerely, Jim and Susan Lindsay
