Pequot Lakes

Ellyn Louise Tracy (nee Hunt), 84, of Pequot Lakes passed away on November 27th, 2023, at home with her husband, Dale Tracy, by her side. Ellyn was born on July 10, 1939, to William and Sybil (Bixler) Hunt in Minneapolis, MN. She met Dale at church and they became partners in life. Ellyn was a kind, loving, funny, and supportive wife, mother, and grandmother. Ellyn worked as a baker at Jerry’s foods in Eden Prairie, MN.

She loved spending time at the lake; when retired her and Dale built their dream house near Lake Ossawinnamakee. Ellyn built an amazing community everywhere she went and would light up any room she walked into. Ellyn loved golf and playing cards. She was a sports fan and loved watching golf and football with her family and friends.
