In 1987, she married Glen Davis and began working as a retail cashier at Sam’s Club in Midwest City.

In her younger years, Traci was an avid softball player and spent a lot of time babysitting. As an adult, her interests included I Love Lucy memorabilia, all things Disney, and Elvis trivia. She loved eating Mexican food at El Chico, and this is also where she enjoyed spending a lot of time with her family. Her real passion was being a mom, grandma and aunt to numerous nieces, nephews, and grandchildren. Traci was truly selfless and caring to everyone in her life and was a mother figure to many. She was the type of mother that would go without to ensure her children’s needs were always met. She was a constant, loving presence in her grandchildren’s lives.
