Tracey Braiden (Poole)

Date of Death: April 8, 2022


Tracey left us peacefully in the evening of April 8, 2022, following a long struggle with Parkinson’s disease.  Born in North Vancouver in 1957, Tracey spent her childhood at Long Beach, Ucluelet and finally Salt Spring Island.  Tracey loved Salt Spring and following her marriage to her life partner, Ross, they decided to spend the rest of their lives here.  She leaves behind  three sons, Shawn, Ben and Ian, and one grandson, Henry.

Tracey may best be remembered for her role as a teacher at the local high school, where, over many years she had a very strong influence. Everyone respected “Mrs. Braiden” for her caring yet no nonsense attitude that helped change so many lives at the high school.  Tracey worked with students, starting in the Gipsy Program in the 1988, right through until 2017 at GISS.  Her patience, as a mother figure and as a caring teacher to hundreds of students, left a lasting impression.  Tracey was always coming up with ideas to enhance the students’ experiences, often making way more work for herself, but never minding.  And she never hesitated to speak up for what she thought was right for the kids, no matter who she went toe to toe with!

We would like to express our thanks to Dr. Verheul and the health care folks at extended care, for their wonderful dedication and loving attention during Tracey’s time there.
