Tracy Ann Wolf, 57, of Vienna, Virginia passed on August 16, 2019 following a battle with leukemia. Born and raised in Hagerstown, Maryland, Tracy attended St. Mary's Catholic School and St. Maria Goretti High School where she was a standout all-around athlete in softball, volleyball, and basketball. She was named Female Athlete of the Year in 1980. After a brief attendance at Hagerstown Junior College, Tracy attended York College of Pennsylvania where she found her passion for medicine. While working towards her BA in Nursing, Tracy was a student-athletic trainer in addition to playing volleyball and softball.
Following her graduation, Tracy was employed at Chambersburg Hospital in Pennsylvania as an ICU Nurse. Tracy moved to Virginia in 1987 to work as an ICU and eventually a Trauma Nurse at INOVA Fairfax Hospital, where she was acknowledged as Nurse of the Year during her career.
Numerous illnesses forced Tracy into an early retirement but her desire to help people never waned. Tracy could always be counted on to help family, friends, and acquaintances who were in need of any medical guidance. She had a tremendous love for all animals, especially dogs, as well as a love of photography, needlepoint, and power tools. Tracy's sense of humor and joke telling capabilities were the highlights of many gatherings.

Cavanaugh, cousins, Diane Nugent, Sean Cavanaugh, Kimberly Hohman,Caitlin Cavanaugh, Bailey Nugent, Stephen Nugent and Madison Nugent, as well as her dogs, Jasper and Griffin.

I am so sorry for the loss of someone so selfless and caring. Our mothers were best friends and therefore we spent a lot of time together when we were children and I have fond memories of being together different places. I pray God gives peace to Barb, Rodney and Kelly and helps them in dealing with this huge loss.

Kelly, my deepest condolences for your loss. While I didn't know your sister, in reading about her, she seemed to live an exceptional life. An amazing athlete and then both an ICU and Trauma nurse. Wow. My Uncle passed 2 years ago from Leukemia. It is a horrible disease. I hope you all are finding strength and peace. Love, Justin
