A celebration of life will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday at the Barlow Gym for Tracy Chiatovich. A pot luck dinner will follow.
Born on Jan. 3, 1963 in Chico to Duane and Sharon Chiatovich, Tracy died at Northern Inyo Hospital on Oct. 18, 2010. She was 47.
Tracy attended elementary school in Southern California. She later moved to Bishop during her early teenage years. She graduated from Bishop Union High School in 1981 and attended college at San Jacinto Community College for two years.
Tracy loved being around her family and friends. “Wherever Tracy was you could hear her laughter. She could find humor in all situations,” the family said. “She was never at a loss for words. She could talk circles around anyone.”
Tracy was preceded in death by two sets of grandparents, her father, mother and step-father.
She is survived by daughter, Lauren Mallory; granddaughter, Hailey Kessler; sister, DeeAnne Chiatovich; nephews, Roy, Ryan and River Mallory; aunt, Lois Kennedy and family; uncle, Wayne Chiatovich; great-aunt, Velma Kelso; and numerous friends.
“Her laughter and humor will be missed by all but she will not be forgotten,” the family said.
