February 23, 1953 - February 8, 2017
Annette “Tracie” Lela Mantor of Roseburg, Oregon, passed away after a long battle with multiple illnesses and health related complications.
Born in Oakland, California, and adopted as an infant to loving parents Ruth and Byron Loomis, Tracie attended Turlock High School and eventually left home at 15 years old to find herself. She always said she never stopped looking. Tracie moved several times throughout the years, making her home in Brookings, Oregon, Medford, Oregon, and eventually settled in Roseburg, Oregon, with her husband to raise her children; although she had always longed to eventually move back to San Francisco, the city she loved and the place she called home.
In her earlier years, Tracie studied Theatrical Arts at Ohio University, and spent many years in the Rock and Roll scene traveling with the love of her life that would soon become her husband of 45 years. Tracie was an eccentric, strong willed, colorful woman who had an overwhelming passion for animals, was a passionate activist at heart, and always had a love and curiosity for the great unknown. Tracie was an accomplished artist, model, a successful business owner, and an avid truth seeker - always believing there was more beyond the constructs of what we all know as life and death. Tracie cared about the earth and the world that would be left behind for generations to come after her, involving herself in many community programs over the years to help create a community her children could all be proud of for years to come. Some may have called her a “Hippie”, a title she gladly embraced.
She is survived by her husband of 45 years, Daniel “Dan-Yen” Mantor; her two children, Darcy (37) and Cory (35); and her five grandchildren, Austin (18), Anika (15), Karter (16), Madasyn (15), Juliette (8); and her beloved cat “Mookie”.
Her wild, crazy and fun loving personality will be truly missed by all that had the privilege of knowing her and her free spirit.
