Tracy Lynn Boeker, age 58 of Germania passed away peacefully surrounded by her family at her home on Thursday, January 24, 2019.  Tracy was born in Portage to Harlow “Stub” and Janice (Nankivell) Nelson on August 26, 1960.  Tracy began riding horses at a very young age; before she was even 10 years old she won numerous awards at horse shows all over south central Wisconsin.  She was a member of the Saddle Tramps 4-H Club and competed every year at the Marquette County Fair.  Tracy graduated from Montello High School in 1978 and married Wayne “Buddy” Boeker II on March 29, 1980.  Together they have resided in Germania and were blessed with three children.

Tracy worked at M & I (now BMO Harris) Bank in Wautoma for 23 years and briefly at Brakebush.  She enjoyed shopping, crafting and was an avid sports fan.  Nana was her proudest title and taking care of her family especially her grandchildren was very important to her.
