In loving memory of Traci Sue (Walck) Smith: 1965-2021


Traci Sue (Walck) Smith, 55, peacefully passed away Monday, Aug. 9, 2021 at Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center. 

Born on Dec. 20, 1965 to Gloria and Richard Walck, Traci was a graduate of Battle Ground High School and longtime resident of Southwest Washington. 

After attending college at Texas A&M, Traci returned home and began working as a dispatcher, a profession she continued throughout her career. Traci always had a love for animals and loved her two dogs, Jonas and Hoosier. She also enjoyed days at the racetrack supporting longtime companion, Craig Loomis and his #01 street stock car. 

She will be remembered most for her smile and friendly personality. Traci’s smile could light up a room and her joyful energy was infectious. She made a friend with nearly everyone she met. 

She is survived by two daughters, Dallas Smith, 28,  and Savannah Smith, 23, who were her greatest joy, along with, sister, Carri Kockritz; mother, Gloria Walck; and grandmother, Helen "Vicki" Cresap. A celebration of life for friends and family will be held in the coming weeks.
