Mom was raised in Randolph, Utah, where she learned to work hard at a very young age by working in the hayfields during summer breaks. She loved spending time at Bear Lake at her Grandpa and Grandma Jensen’s home picking raspberries. Mom attended and graduated from South Rich High School, where she excelled in academics and cheerleading.
Tracy married Allen Cornia on Aug. 20, 1971, and they were later sealed in the Ogden Utah Temple. They were married for 35 years and blessed with four children, but they later divorced.
Mom was an amazing homemaker and loved to bake and cook for everyone. She was also a bus driver for the Rich School District for 30-plus years, where she treated and loved every student as if they were her own.
