Velma Jean Tracey (Styles)

May 7, 1923 - May 27, 2022


Velma Jean Tracey (nee: Styles) was born on May 7, 1923 in Sumas, WA. She was the 12th child of 13 children born to Charles and Jessie Styles.
Jean was predeceased by her very loving husband, Ed Tracey in Nov. 1997 after 49 years of marriage. She was also predeceased by her parents: Charles and Jessie Styles, brothers: Jack, Ross(Ruth) and Joe(Ruth) and sisters: Rosalie, Gwynneth, Margaret(Ben Days), Ruth(Chuck Guckert), Annie(Matt Murphy), Olive(Arthur Taylor), Marion(Roland Vrooman), Hazel(Clarence Kluin), and Elaine(Earl McPhail).
Ed and Jean were married on August 2, 1948 in Whatcom County at the family home in Sumas. They remained in love together until Ed’s passing.  Ed and Jean loved the gospel and ministering together to reach people for Christ. In 1956, Ed and Jean moved to Dawson Creek and in time helped to plant an Assembly there. Jean worked in the Hospital as a medical unit clerk and Ed was in sales with a Real Estate Co.  They eventually moved back to Abbotsford, where Jean worked for a Doctor’s Answering Service for many years.
Jean loved gardening, homemaking and hospitality. She loved reading, studying God’s Word and journaling daily. She was able to remain in her home in Abbotsford until she passed away into the presence of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on the afternoon of May 27, 2022.
She will be missed by many, but her memories will live on.
Good night Auntie Jean, “We’ll see you in the Morning”!

Very fondly remembered – she and her beloved husband Ed.
She’s seen the Saviour face to face / And felt the warmth of His embrace / Adored Him for His matchless grace. ‘At home with the Lord.’

We are so sorry to hear of Jean’s passing. Jean was so welcoming to us as a family over many years when we visited from Northern Ireland and Scotland. She was a wonderful lady and we have so many happy memories of her. She will be greatly missed but also happy in peace with her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

From: Maurice & Lois McElrea
Relation: Friends

To all the family of Jean Tracey we extend our deepest sympathy on the passing of Jean. We can all be thankful she is at home with her Lord. We value her many years of service, hard work and strong friendships.

From: Tom Morrison
Relation: Friend

I will always remember Jean Tracey for her generosity and hospitality, always welcoming me when I visited to trade or share our love of many good books. Or just to do various handyman jobs whichever were sometimes needed.
I was glad to have visited her a few days before the Lord called her home. I had hoped to be at the burial but we were out of town with family which prevented my attending.
