As death sometimes tends to happen suddenly I feel I need to get the word out that someone in the league has died. Tracy Stillwell played in the Fair Play Leagues, most often on her mother's teams in either the Monday women's or subbing in the Thursday coed sixes leagues on teams that might have been called "It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere" or "Team Eash". There were to play in the upcoming Monday leagues as well...
TRACY L. (HALL) STILLWELL, 32, of Churubusco, was received into the arms of Jesus on Wednesday, Jan. 3, 2006 from injuries suffered in a traffic accident in Whitley County. Born in Fort Wayne, she graduated from Churubusco High School in 1993 and attended Ivy Tech. She had worked as an occupational therapist at Covington Manor Nursing Home in Fort Wayne for the past five years, and had previously worked at Parkview Hospital. Tracy will long be remembered for her love of all types of animals, her unending zest for life, and her ever present smile. She attended the Sugar Grove Church of God north of Churubusco, had played in adult softball leagues, and was a member of the Fair Play Volleyball League. Surviving are her husband, Chad M. Stillwell; step-daughter, Megan Ann Stillwell of Bourbon; mother and step-father, Linda and Ken Eash of Fort Wayne; father and step-mother, Larry L. and Brenda Hall of Churubusco; sister, Lindsy Folsom of Fort Wayne; step-sister, Angela (Todd) Freiburger of Fort Wayne; and her two dogs and companions, PD and Chili.

Saturday at Sheets & Childs Funeral Home in Churubusco. Burial in Eel River Cemetery, Allen County. Memorials to Humane Society of Whitley County, P.O. Box 245, Columbia City, IN 46725.

Here is Tracy's MySpace profile.
I heard the news exactly when the first matches for the new season were getting ready to start at Spiece. My deepest sympathies go out to the family. Tracy's great personality will be missed.
