Tracy Westerman

1963 ~ 2022 (age 58)


With heavy hearts we share the passing of our Mom, Tracy Westerman, on Thursday, July 21, 2022, in her 59th year at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Loving Mother to Erica Tessari, Elizabeth Giacomini (Christopher), Marc Tessari (Jessica Yeo) and Margaret Tessari (Mike Cottle) and cherished Grandma to Olivia, Claudia and Nicholas Arpa, Mya Tessari and Anthony Giacomini. She will be deeply missed by her siblings, Janet Vallas (Paul) and Richard Westerman (Lise), niece Beverly Seip, great-niece Haley Seip, and family and friends both here and abroad. Our Mom was born in Lincoln, England on October 5, 1963 to the late Patsy Gray and the late Peter Westerman.

Our Mom was a kindred spirit; her deep love, admiration and respect for animals began at a very young age when her Mother would regularly find boxes of toads, birds with broken wings and stray cats and dogs under her bed. She was especially fond of dogs and was able to put at ease even the toughest and most stubborn that crossed her path, a characteristic that enabled her to operate a successful dog grooming business for many years. Our Mom loved a good cup of tea, crime themed TV shows, the drive-in, days at the beach, Tim Horton’s and would never turn down butterscotch ripple ice cream. We will miss her laugh, epic back scratches, her famous dessert, roast beef dinners and five minutes.

Cremation has taken place and details of a Celebration of Life will follow.
