Born on January 15, 1963 in Oklahoma, Tracey James Brooks was the only daughter of the Patricia and Arthur James.
In the late 60s, the family moved to California. Tracey went to Berkeley High School and graduated Oceana High School (class of 1981) and also attended Laney College.
Tracey spent most of her adult life (20 years) on the East Coast. While living in Magnolia, Delaware, Tracey loved spending time working on her house. At times you would find her doing random projects inside and out and just trying new things with friends and coworkers. She also really loved watching football and was #NinerFaithful 49er fan because of her great grandfather and Hall of Famer, Joe “The Jet” Perry.
Tracey was a long-time employee of the US Department of Transportation. She retired after 34 years of Federal Service with her most recent office being the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
It was during this time that she also started participating in Christian ladies fellowship groups with her long time friend and neighbor Valencia and friends. Tracey was on fire for the Lord and attended Calvary Assembly and later to Crossroad Christian Center. Tracey committed her life to God and accepted Jesus Christ as her personal savior in 2010. She lived a life of service, feeding the homeless and offering her home to visitors of the church community. It was said that if Tracey couldn’t physically be on site to feed the homeless she would personally purchase and donate the food. She was selfless.
She leaves to cherish her memory, her “Heart”, her brother Damon, her husband LC, her daughter Emily Miller, her brother-in-law Eric, her uncle Howard “Ray”, her nephews, Pierre and Keith, her nieces Mahogany, Amayla Alexis and her two children, and Maliyah, her great nieces, Ami and Ava and her great nephews Pierre Jr. and Noah, her cousins Erika, Kimberly and Bryan, her God son Christopher, her “siblings” Keith and Angelique, her close friends Nicole, Stacey, Stephanie F. And Stephanie H., and a host of other beautiful relatives and friends, including her Hickson-Thomas family in NY and her those who knew her at the Department of Transportation.
Tracey was preceded in death by her parents Patricia and Arthur, her step-father Howard, her Aunt Carolyn, her former mother-in-law Elaine, former father-in-law Johnny Hickson and their son Marcus Hickson-Thomas, and her father-in-law Peter, and her two dogs, Forrest and Fifi.
Tracey was a woman of God and a lover of scripture and quotes. One quote that Tracey shared on her Facebook once read “No Christ, no peace. Know Christ, Know Peace”. We know that Tracey knew Christ and therefore we know that she will be resting in peace.
