Tracie Allyn Frye King

Tracie Allyn Frye King, age 55 of Goodyear, AZ died July 31, 2017 in Phoenix, AZ. She was born May 20, 1962 to Kermit and Judith Grey Frye in Albuquerque, NM. Tracie was a thespian at El Dorado High School class of 1980. She attended college at Eastern New Mexico University and graduated from Fresno Pacific University. She was a Corpsman in the US Navy from 1983 to 1984. Tracie worked as a school teacher. She continued her love of acting as a Community Theatre Raisin Cain Player. She was a member of the Kingsburg, CA Women’s Club as well as a member of the Kingsburg First Baptist Church.

No more pain for Tracie, but we must endure the ache. Tracie was a shining light in so many lives. If one needed help with planning an event, Tracie was definitely the go-to person. She loved the challenge of making arrangements from anything to a simple birthday party for a two-year old to making all the arrangements for the wedding of a 26-year old daughter. To Tracie, life was all about family. If you were part of Tracie’s family, you knew it. She never forgot a birthday or an anniversary or a Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. Tracie loved bestowing gifts on her family. I know of no one who ALWAYS selected the perfect gift for the occasion. It wasn’t always just one gift, either; she seemed to incorporate small gifts that complemented the main present.

Tracie’s love was unending and her faith unwavering. Her love of God had never been stronger.

Tracie loved EVERY family member. Those loved included cousins no matter how far removed. Her uncles and aunts would know they were special in her heart. Her parents knew her endless love. Even in her final moments and through her agonizing pain, she expressed how much she loved everyone. No sibling could have been more cherished. Tracie’s love and loyalty for her husband went unmatched. In Tracie’s heart and eyes, she adored her children and would share her feelings of such pride in her actions and words to anyone who would take a moment to listen. Of all the love she doled out, none can compare to her love of her two sweet granddaughters. They knew her as Nana-Banana and she was especially overjoyed to have that title. All who knew her will have an emptiness in their mind, body and soul; those two very young granddaughters won’t understand that emptiness, but will know that Nana-Banana won’t be far away and Nana-Banana will shine her light of love on them forever.

It is with Amazing Grace that Tracie has entered this world and touched so many people with her love. And it is with Amazing Grace that we cherish her memory and look forward to being with her again.

Tracie is survived by her husband, Anthony Randall King; daughter, Lindsay Leigh King Smith and her husband Wayne Patrick Smith; granddaughters, Kennedy Leigh and Samantha Ellie Smith; son, Jordan Anthony King; parents, Kermit and Judith Frye; sister, Laurie Beth Frye; brother, K. Scott Frye and his wife Sylvia Rose; many nieces and nephews and a sweet dog companion, Gracie. She was preceded in death by her grandmother Louella Grey who died on the same date (July 31) in 1994. Tracie has joined all her grandparents that preceded her. The family suggests that donations be made in honor of Tracie to Liver and Kidney foundations of your choice.

  9. My Love,

    My heart is torn. We traveled this journey on earth together for 34 years. It is difficult to walk through our home and not see you everywhere, in every fabric of our existence together. I find myself kneeling beside your side of the bed and just weeping and praying. I pick up some of your clothing and try to smell you again. I want to hear your voice again. We raised two beautiful children, Lindsay and Jordan who will carry on our legacy. My only hope is truly in Christ Jesus. Knowing that you are in heaven is the only thing giving me peace. You no longer have to suffer with the constant physical ailments that only you and I really knew about, because you were always so stoic and did not want anyone else (including the children) to know.

    I am looking at your picture right now that was taken at Lindsay’s Wedding. You are so radiant and beautiful. You are MY Bride and I miss you deeply My Love. I so look forward to the day when I can reunite with you in Heaven. Until then My Love – Your Loving Husband, Anthony (Tony).

    • Tony God must have needed your special angel for a greater and far more wonderfully purpose a glorious task that only she can accomplish with the help of us, and the archangels here on Eden! I Love You Brother.and I am,here for you.forever

    • Tony, I’m am so saddened to hear of Tracie’s passing. I had kept up with you all on FB. She loved you from the first time she saw you in Corps School. I will never forget being in your wedding!! Gods love to you and your family. ❤️

  10. King family and Frye family,
    Our hearts and prayers are with you. We’ve known Tracie and Tony for 30 years or so. What a great team they were. I loved seeing Tracie’s FB posts regarding Gracie and her cute dog clothes and adventures, Tracie’s posts regarding her two granddaughters that she loved so very much, and posts about Jordan and Lindsay and how proud they made her. She will not be forgotten, just missed.
    ❤️Mike and Terri Kupiec

  11. I knew Tracie from high school. A nice, caring person. She helped me, when no one else would.
    For that and more, I am forever grateful.

  12. So sorry for your loss- praying comfort and peace for all of you. Such a shock. We have a lot of good memories of your family from your Kingsburg days and pictures of our kids together. Love you- you are definitely in our thoughts and prayers.

  13. Tracie will truly be missed, even though we haven’t seen her for quite awhile. We will never forget all the fun times we had in Selma, doing plays at the Selma Arts Center. Tracie was so good on stage and you could tell how much she loved it. I will always treasure the poem she wrote for me. Singing and dancing with the angels sweet Tracie…

  14. Tracie and I were great friends during our Thespian days at Eldorado High School. I always felt like a part of her loving family. My heart is breaking for all of you at this incredibly sad and difficult loss. May Tracie’s love and light live on through all those who loved her so.

  15. Tracie, sweet Tracie, I am comforted by knowing you are in heaven being embraced by those that preceded you. You’re smile and your laugh will be greatly missed, but I know I will always feel your love. Visit my dreams A.S.A.P.
    I love you,

  16. Dearest Tracie, May you be in peace my dear friend!!!! You will be soooo missed. Fortunately your family have memories to keep their hearts happy!!! You may be gone but their memories will keep you alive in their hearts!!!!!💞💞💞 May your family find some sort of comfort at this most difficult time!!!! Dianna Brady

  17. Its hard to know where to start and what to say. Even though we lived far apart for so many years, Tracie always managed to keep in touch with our family. And she always had so many wonderful stories to tell, and told them well, she did. I know she was deeply loved by her family, and she loved them dearly. We all will miss her smile and her kind words about everyone. I don’t think she could find fault with anyone. My memories may be few because of our distance, but I will hold on forever to the times we did share. She is in my prayers, as her family is also. My love to everyone.
    Tracie, you give Sissy a big hug from all of us. Thanks, Sweetie.

  18. I have fond memories of doing plays with Tracie with Raisin’ Cain Players. She was a joy to work with. I directed “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” and she was the perfect ‘Mother’. There was no question that she played the perfect wife and mother in that play, because those were her priorities off stage as well. Her faith in Christ was evident to those who knew her, and we were blessed. My prayers are for peace with the family.

  19. Full of life, love and joy! That’s the Tracie I will always remember. Sing and dance with Jesus until your loves see you again! Thank you for showing your love of Jesus to all those around you.
    May God comfort your hearts Tony, Jordan, Lindsey, Kennedy and Samantha. Her love for all of you was so obvious and true!

  20. Love and light to all of Tracie’s family during this difficult time. We attended high school together and I am saddened that she has left this earth way too soon.

  21. Dear sweet Tracie…my heart is breaking. I miss you so much. I keep wanting to call you and share all the beautiful messages of love your friends and family are posting. I can’t stop the tears..Dad and I love you so much. You are and always will be our precious little girl.


  22. So sorry to hear. Such an awesome person and always encouraging. Prayers for your family.

  23. Dear Tony,
    I opened The Kingsburg Recorder just a little while ago and saw Tracie’s picture, name and obituary. It is a beautiful picture and tribute to her and the love she brought to you, your children and many others. Thanks for placing this in the Recorder so we can send a prayer your way. Though I haven’t seen you in many years I have wondered how you were doing and where you were. I know Tracie went through a lot and “fought the good fight.” With deep condolences.

    • Thank you for your kind words about our daughter. Her mother and I are very distraught
      We miss her very much. I wrote the obituary and put it in the Kingsburg paper so friends like you would know.

  24. Tracie was such a joyful person who made you feel good no matter how rotten a day you had! I had the priveledge to go through teacher education classes with her, and what a fantastic time that was! She will be greatly missed and though your hearts are aching for her presence here, know that the memories of her love, joy, and enthusiasm will live on your hearts until you see her again one day. I am praying comfort and strength for your family.

  25. We are thinking of you and your Family Tony. We are so sorry and heartbroken. We keep you all in our prayers.

  26. Tracie, you were so beautiful, generous, thoughtful and kind! I will miss you and always love you!
    We shall meet again one day..til then, Nana Banana, we will keep you in our happiest memories!
    Auntie Jill

  27. Although I have not seen Tracie, Tony, Jordan or Lindsey in many years, I often think back to the countless memories of being a young boy over at the King’s house. Tracie was a very special person and everyone seemed to know that. She will be missed by the many people that she was able to touch throughout her life.

    Tony, Jordan and Lindsey – I cannot imagine the pain and sadness that you have all been through, you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
