Tracy Lu Hume

March 8, 1963 — May 10, 2022

Tracy Lu Hume was born on March 8, 1963 in Elizabethtown, New York. She was the youngest child of Hartley and Denise “Lorraine” Hume.

In her youth, Tracy was known for her athleticism and love of sports. She was very active in organized sports throughout school and into her early adulthood. For many years, she devotedly followed her favorite professional sports teams – Boston Celtics, Bruins and Red Sox; and the New York Jets.

As an adult, Tracy was a voracious crossword-puzzler, gifted card player, and classic cinema enthusiast. Her knowledge of US Military History wasn’t too shabby either. She enjoyed all puzzles and games, especially jigsaw puzzles, Cribbage, Pinochle and the occasional scratch-off ticket.

Between her twenty-five years as a greenskeeper at the Elizabethtown Golf Course and her penance for daily strolls “up town”, Tracy was a familiar face in the Elizabethtown hamlet community. She was known by all who lived along her regular walking route and she, in turn, knew all their outdoor pets. Despite not owning a dog herself, she often carried treats to pass out to her neighborhood four-legged friends.

Tracy liked all animals but had a particular fondness for cats. She owned many over the years and loved them all. What a cast of characters! Rip, Tear, Red Lion, Greystoke, Chester, Nutmeg “Porkchop”, just to name a few, all spoiled-rotten and full of hijinks.

Tracy will be remembered for her quick wit, kind heart, and stubbornly independent spirit. Because she placed great value on her privacy and solitude, her services will be private.

Tracy is survived by her mother and siblings: Hedy “Hedda” (Noel) Merrihew; Brent Hume; Bryan (Dee) Hume; Randy “Hawk” (Renee Hughes) Hume; and Lori “Lori Ann” (Ron) Hall.

She is also survived by her nieces and nephews: Chelsea (Ryan Dolly) Merrihew, Amanda Hume, Sandahl Hume, Noel Hartley (Sara Hurlburt) Merrihew, Jake Hume, Garrett Hume, Ryan Hall; and her “little doobers”: Samantha, Harding, William, and Houdini.

Tracy was predeceased by: her father; a sister, “Julie Jo”; good friends, Little Phil and Bruce; and many loved cats, most notably Rip and Red Lion.

Those wishing to honor Tracy’s memory can donate to the North Country SPCA or, better yet, adopt their next pet.
