Joan Tracey was a very active member of BASIC (Brothers And Sisters In Christ) for many years. She was twice in Áras an Uachtaráin for presentations to Presidents Mary Robinson (1995) and Mary McAleese (1999). And she was on the committee for the First WOW International Conference held in Dublin in 2001.

Removal on Thursday morning (16 June 2016) to St. Anne's Church, Portmarnock arriving for 10 o'clock Funeral Mass, followed immediately thereafter by cremation in Glasnevin Crematorium.

May she rest in peace.
