Tracey Dale Fuhrman passed away early Sunday morning, April 9, 2017. She was born February 3, 1958 to Dale and Lillie Fuhrman of Gillett. Tracey was a long-time carrier for Arkansas Gazette and Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. She loved meeting people on her various routes throughout the years, and held a special place in her heart for the stray and abandoned animals she encountered - always keeping plenty of dog and cat food for them along with the current newspapers to be delivered. Tracey was also a professional painter with a large commercial and residential clientele. In her earlier years, she was active in restaurant management. Tracey was preceded in death by her father; grandparents, Tillman & Alfreda Nunez and Simon & Clara Fuhrman; and brother-in-law, Freddie Perritt. She is survived by her mom of Gillett; sister, Kelly Perritt, brothers, Eddie (Brigette) Fuhrman and Kyle (Frankie) Fuhrman; nieces and nephews: Lydia (Nick) Barsotti, Alex Perritt, Lizzie Fuhrman, Mary Grace Fuhrman, Paige Fuhrman, Henry Harrison; great-niece Lyla Rose Fuhrman; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and wonderful friends. Graveside services will be Wednesday, April 12 at 3 p.m. at St. Paul Lutheran Cemetery in Gillett, followed by a gathering at her family's home, 214 N. Grand, Gillett, Ark. 72055. Because of her great love of animals - especially those abandoned - memorials may be made to Out of the Woods animal rescue, P.O. Box 7365, Little Rock, Ark. 72217 or any shelter of your choice would be greatly appreciated. www.essexfuneralhome.com.
