After spending the final 18 years of her life sober from alcohol, she dedicated her spare time to helping others recover from alcoholism. She touched the lives and enjoyed a common bond with several women throughout the Florida Panhandle and Northwest Arkansas.

Tracie enjoyed spending time with her family, embracing a close bond with each of her three kids, while traveling, exploring. and attending Arkansas Razorbacks games with her husband.

She had a fondness for her cats, Sundae, Susie and Jax. She loved watching humming birds at the feeder and spent many nights gazing at the beauty of the moon.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Lillian Ellis Huffine, her father, Donald Bijolle and her step-father Ted Huffine, as well as her sisters, Debbie and Terry, and her brother, Jerry.

She is survived by her husband of 28 years, Steve Andrews, her daughters, Jordyn and Baylee, and her son, CJ, all of Fayetteville, Ark. She is also survived by her sisters, Donna and Cathy, her nieces, Mylissa, Tiffany and Summer, and her nephews, Jason, Randy, Guy, Chris, Nathan and Jesse.
