Tracy was born on August 19, 1960 in Springfield, Missouri. Her yellow brick road began with her parents, Bill and Edna Arbeitman. She journeyed down the road with her husband, Mark Kinder; daughter, Shana Kinder-Glenn; son, Jarid Kinder and daughter, Sarah Kinder. Her daughter, Shana and son-in-law, Chris Glenn, gifted Tracy with three grandsons: Liam, Rhys and Ezra. She had two brothers, Todd and Andy Arbeitman. Her brother, Todd and sister-in-law, Lori Arbeitman, added to the love Tracy had for family with their children: Annalee, Jackson and Benny. Her brother Andy has three children: Gabrielle, Elijah and Halle.

Tracy had the heart of the Tin Man; spending her time as a matriarch, putting family over everything, snuggling her grand babies and being a great friend to all. She had the wisdom of the Scarecrow; choosing the ultimate partner and high school sweetheart, engaging her opinion in all decisions and being the leader for everyone in her life. She had the courage of the Lion; adventuring out to the lake, tailgating and calling the Hogs on Saturdays and never fearing conflict, no matter how scary things got.

Tracy clicked her Ruby Red Slippers three times and flew over the rainbow to her Home.

The Celebration of Life ceremony will be held at Adelaide Hall on September 16, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. and is welcome to all. Services are under the direction of Edwards Funeral Home.
