Tracy L. (Nee Carpenter) Klemp, age 48, died December 16, 2016. A memorial service will be held 1 p.m. Thursday, December 29, 2016 at Hugeback-Johnson Funeral Home in Fredericksburg with Rev. Dave Byrd presiding. Friends may greet the family from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. on Thursday, December 29, 2016 at the funeral home. Tracy Lynn was born January 24, 1968 in New Hampton to Harry and Kathy Carpenter. She graduated from Fredericksburg High School in 1985. She was employed at the White House Restaurant and also worked for Kevin Bea for many years. She started dating Rick Klemp and enjoyed riding motorcycles. Together they attended ABATE events, poker runs and parties with friends. In 1994 Rick and Tracy moved out to Heartland, Wisconsin where they along with Tracy's Mother, Kathy bought a house with a huge yard. They always kept in touch with their friends and family and spent many a weekend back here in Fredericksburg. They even returned home to the Burg to get married on September 5, 1998. From this union came two sons, first Zach and then Layne. Tracy became a devoted Mother and Housewife until the boys started school. She then became employed at the Lake Country School where the boys were attending. As the boys were getting older Tracy became employed at The Picnic Basket Diner as a waitress and later became a manager. She worked here for several years. Tracy loved meeting new people and made new friends wherever she went. She was gifted with a magnetic personality, full of bubbly energy, and very generous with her beautiful smile. She always had a genuine interest in her friends and her talent for problem solving always included a humorous side to them. A few years ago Tracy began her battle with cancer. She revealed to us so much courage, and determination and strength and still made time for each and everyone of her family and friends. Tracy is survived by her husband Rick, her son Zach and his wife Becky, son, Layne, and her mother, Kathy Carpenter. Her brother, Gary and wife Nicole, and family. Tracy was preceded in death by her father, Harry Carpenter.

  2. I remember Tracy from when I was a child; she worked for my dad’s small tax practice in Fredericksburg. Kevin Bee. Seems like she did everything for him. He couldn’t even type. Last time I saw Tracy was the day before my dad died last year. I arrived back from Japan just in time. Tracy came to see him, too. She was the beautiful and caring woman she always has been. She really did leave this world too early… my heart goes out to her family left behind, especially sons and husband. This will hurt bad for many years, but you will meet her again. Her loving arms will be there.
