Tracey Lynn Bostedt, 51, Oconto resident, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on August 19, 2023. She was born January 26, 1972, in Oconto, the daughter of Debbie Crivello (Winans) and Vincent Crivello.
She graduated from Oconto High School in 1990. Her two greatest blessings in life were her daughters, Brittany and Kailey, whom she raised as a single mom. She sacrificed a lot to ensure her daughters had a better life. Tracey was always so proud of both of them and their accomplishments. She never missed any of her daughters’ events or graduations. She was always the first person there so she could get a front row seat, at times with a box of kleenex. Tracey loved her children, grandchildren, nieces and spending time with family and friends.
She was known for her jokes, making people laugh and cared so much about others. Tracey was always up for an adventure and shenanigans, especially with her best friend Heidi. She was a giver and wore her heart on her sleeve. She had a heart of gold, a true angel here on earth. Tracey helped host and organize numerous benefits, raising money for many in the area. After years of factory work, Tracey decided to pursue her passion of taking care of others. She returned to school to become a CNA. Tracey cared for people up until a stroke left her unable to do the work she loved.
She will be deeply missed by her parents, Debbie and Vince Crivello; daughters, Brittany (Ben) Walczyk and Kailey Brennan; grandchildren, River and Lyleigh Walczyk; brothers, Adam Bostedt and Nick (Lacey) Trensch; nieces, Callie, Aubree and Kinsley; her best friend, Heidi Trepanier and friend, Sherry Olson. She is further survived by other aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Tracey was preceded in death by her Grandmother, Lyllus Winans and Uncle, Steven Winans.
To honor Tracey’s life and wishes, a private Celebration of Life will be held for family and close friends at a later date. Online condolences may be sent to Tracey’s family at www.prokowall.com.
Mom, you’ll be so missed. Continue to look over us and your grandchildren. We’ll see you again one day.
