Louise Ella Tracy Schille passed from this earth on Saturday April 3, 2020 with her grandson by her side. She was born in Jonesport Maine on April 24, 1933 to her parents Amos W Tracy and Leonice E Hayward (Tracy).
She attended school in a one room schoolhouse with her siblings and ate lobster and deer meat a lot growing up because they were poor and it was free. She spoke a lot about growing up, with amusement and fondness, mixed with respect. At 17, in her senior year of school, she met and married Ralph Campbell, a service man who frequently was deployed elsewhere. She spent some time with Ralph's family in Lubec where she eventually gave birth to her first and only child, Sharon Leonne. She married 2 more times in her life; Ronnie Breithaupt and finally Wolfe Schille.
She spent most of her adult life in New York state, but had a strong sense of family and loved to take vacations with her mother and sisters every year. She was a great lover of animals and was known for her collection of cast offs and waifs throughout the years. From dobermans to chihuahuas.
In later years after retiring from New York State, where she worked for many years as a data entry clerk, she volunteered for a church mission in their thrift shop in East Schodack, NY. She made many friends in the community while there.
She finally returned to her home state of Maine in 2018 after being diagnosed with dementia, to live with her daughter Sharon. In her last few years she got to spend time with her family, including her younger sister Doris and her older sister Sarah(Sally).
She is predeceased by her mother and father. Amos and Leonice Tracy, a brother Amos Tracy, 3 sisters, Sarah Gibson, Emma Prindall, and Doris Gendrolis.
