CARIBOU - Sunday, July 14, 2019, Cynthia L. (Delong) Tracy, 75, stopped searching for an earthly home and entered her eternal home in Heaven. As with most every Sunday after church, she enjoyed spending time with her sister Barb Tapley, and other friends in Mars Hill. After a wonderful meal and always great dessert she asked the ladies to pray because she was not feeling well. As they prayed, Jesus was beckoning her home. They tried to revive her, but Jesus said "Cynthia, the home that you have been waiting for is ready for you to move in."
Cynthia was her father's daughter always working with wood in some form or fashion. Her and her sister Barb could be found cutting down trees (by hand), enjoying a fire or two. Cynthia always had some kind of wood project going. In the day, she was known for her "rolls" and her delicious food. But her favorite thing to do was to talk about God. She loved having fellowship with Christian people. She had a heart of gold and such a welcoming spirit no one could escape her hugs and her genuine smile.
Cynthia spent her career in Banking. She began as a bookkeeper, then went downstairs to become a proof operator, and finally a teller. She was great with numbers.
After years of dialysis, Cynthia was granted a new life on July 9, 2001. Her kidney transplant changed her life, and for the first time she was able to hold her new granddaughter, Olivia.
Cynthia was predeceased by her parents Mearl J. Delong and Frances A. (McNinch) Delong; her sister Carol (Deanie) Cote; and her former husband Herman (Sonny) Tracy. She is survived by her sister Sheila (Pete) Barnes and family of Kentucky; her sister Barbra Tapley and family of Mars Hill; and the family of her sister Carol Cote of Kentucky, New Jersey, and Maine; her children, Carla (Tracy) Picard, husband Bryan Picard, Olivia and Brandon of Caribou, and Kurt Tracy, fiancée Lynn Beaulieu of Madawaska, Seth Tracy of Caribou, Ethan Tracy of Madras, Oregon, and Felicity (Haywood) Chavez; and family also of Madras, Oregon.
A Celebration of Life will be Friday, July 19, 2019, at Celebration Center, 170 Houlton Road, Fort Fairfield, ME. Calling hours are from 1-3 and her service at 3:00. Lancaster Morgan Funeral Home of Caribou officiating, memories and condolences may be shared at

I did not know Cynthia but stumbled upon her obituary and was moved beyond words at how well it painted a picture of not only her final day but also of her life. She seemed to have been a vivacious soul full of adventure who lived a wonder life surrounded by people she loved,doing what made her happy & I felt the urge to express my deepest condolences to those she left behind. I hope you find yourself smiling more & crying less when ever you think of her --God Bless

All Tracy children so sorry for your loss! The last time I seen your Mom was in a church service. She certainly loved her Savior, Jesus and all her children and she was a very strong prayer warrior! She believed in prayer; knew that God heard and answered prayer! she was quite an example of being a Christian!

I am so saddened to hear of Cynthia’s passing . She was a lovely lady with a beautiful soul. We had just spoken last week and told me about her upcoming trip with her sister, she was very excited. She will be greatly missed. My thoughts are with her family. She is home now.. ❤️

My sympathy to Cynthia's family. I will always remember her special hugs, her words of encouragement, and her own special smile. At church one of my boys would seek her out for a hug from, "Grammy"

Cynthia was an amazing woman of God who left an indelible impact on my heart. She was God's messenger of healing in my life. She taught me that I was deeply loved by God and that His grace would always be sufficient, no matter what the circumstances. She will forever be my sister in Christ. I thank God that He blessed me with her love and friendship. My thoughts and prayers are with her entire family. May they find comfort, peace, and strength in Christ. God be with each one of you.

So surreal. Still can't wrap my brain around this, but so very thankful that I got one last hug on Sunday July 14. This is bitter/sweet Cynthia. Look forward to seeing you again, and needless to say your still cheering us all on.
