Tracey Louise Roberts was born Oct. 3, 1967 in Houston. She was the daughter of Roy and Cheryl Acebo. She grew up in Houston and graduated from Alief-Hastings High School in 1986. After graduation she attended college. Her life dramatically changed March 9, 1994, when she gave birth to her first son Wesley Ryan Moseley.
In 1996, she met her match in John Web Roberts, and shortly after they moved to Sealy, Texas to make their home. From there, the next few years were full of fun, vacations, family, and love. She had a particularly busy year in 2000, when she graduated from the nursing program at the University of Houston and finally married the love of her life on July 10, 2000. The next year on May 25, 2001, she gave birth to their second son, Aidan Kristopher Roberts. She was an extremely devoted mother. She never missed a single activity that her boys participated in. She was always in the stands cheering them on and showing them how important they were to her. Her love for children eventually shifted her career path, and led her to join the Sealy ISD family. It was easy to see her passion for the children she worked with every day. You would often see her attending various little dribbler’s games, concerts, plays, and baseball games to support “her kiddos.”
Tracey truly loved them. She wanted to give them the best she could, which led to her becoming very involved in The Jingle Bell Fun Run. The Jingle Bell Fun Run is held every year by the PTA and a portion of the proceeds would go to the elementary school’s PE program. She put a lot of effort in to generating excitement amongst the students and families to participate with her. She would run every year in festive attire. This was a cause very close to her heart and one of her favorite events each year. Tracey had a knack for bringing people together. She even started yearly reunions with her high school friends. Tracey had an infectious smile and a personality you couldn’t help but want to be around. Her faith in God, strength and determination were truly inspirational. The most important thing in Tracey’s life was family. She lived for holidays spent together surrounded by love, especially Christmas. She was the backbone that held everyone together and the light that drew us home. God looked around the garden and saw an empty space. He then looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful for he only takes the best. He saw the road was getting rough, and the hills were hard to climb. So he closed your weary eyelids and whispered “Peace be thine.”
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone; For part of us went with you, the day God called you home.
