"Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you, sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you."

Tracee Coons Gallegos returned home to her Heavenly Father's loving arms on January 7th, 2018 after a valiant battle against cancer. Tracee was born to Edmond Dae Coons and Olive Stewart Coons in Mt. Pleasant, Utah, on September 15th, 1956. She married her eternal partner Felix James Gallegos on August 15th, 1980 and was later sealed in the Ogden Temple on June 13th, 1981. She was the world's best mom to her two children, Amie and Christopher, whom she loved to the moon and back infinity times. She brought light into the lives of everyone around her and was known for making the family laugh until they cried. She loved camping, travelling, and spending time with loved ones; especially Grammy Camp every summer with her grandchildren, Kai and Aria, whom she adored.

Tracee graduated Roy High School in 1974 and continued with her lifelong best friend, Becky Hunt, to earn an elementary education degree from Utah State University in 1998. Teaching was her passion and she treated every student with the love and compassion she afforded her own children. She taught for 20 years in Granite School District and never gave up, fighting to stay in the classroom until the end. She truly followed the adage her father told her every day before school, "Be kind to all the little children." Tracee was very thankful to her colleagues, friends, parents and students who supported her through her career from start to finish.

As a devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Tracee served faithfully in many positions, but her favorite by far was teaching the little ones in Primary.

In her passing Tracee was met by her father Dae, and is survived by her mother Olive, loving husband Felix, her daughter Amie Jones (Jared), grandchildren Kai and Aria, and her son Christopher (Jocelyn). Along with her sister Daenette (Michael) More, brother Edmond (Sylvia) Coons, and sister Jodene (Jay) Meldrum.

The family would like to thank the staff of the Huntsman Cancer Institute for their kind and compassionate care.

We love you Mom! We'll miss your smile, beautiful blue eyes and laugh. We know that you'll watch over us and you'll be in our hearts and thoughts until we meet again.
