Tracey A. (Kuykendall) Ricci

June 2, 1963 — September 23, 2023

Seneca Falls

Tracey A. Ricci, 60, lifelong resident of Seneca Falls, passed peacefully at Highland Hospital in Rochester on Saturday, September 23rd, 2023 with her family by her side. Visitation will be Tuesday, October 3rd from 2-4 PM and 6-8 PM at Doran Funeral Home, 4 East Bayard St., Seneca Falls. A Funeral Mass will be held on Wednesday, October 4th at 11 AM at St. Patrick's Church, Seneca Falls. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations in memory be made to the American Cancer Society, PO Box 6704, Hagerstown, MD 21741.

Tracey was born the daughter of the late Robert and Elaine (Lockwood) Kuykendall. She was a graduate of Mynderse Academy, Class of 1981, and went on to further her education with an Associates from Tompkins Cortland Community College. She then continued on to Continental School of Beauty where she received her cosmetology certificate. She worked for over 30 years as a Hairdresser at The Hairtique in Seneca Falls.

No matter if she was at the salon, at home, or out with friends, Tracey was truly the life of the party. She always had a smile on her face, and she loved to entertain. When the weather was nice, she loved being near the water, whether it be the ocean, or one of the many pool parties in her back yard. When she wasn't entertaining you could find her curled up on the couch with a nice glass of wine watching a scary movie. She also knew her way around a kitchen, and many will miss her cooking, especially her homemade sauce.

Tracey is survived by her husband, James H. Ricci; daughters, Brittany (fiancé, AJ Daily) Rogers and Sydney (TJ) Radka; son, James J. Ricci; grandsons, Liam Radka and Dawson Radka; brothers, Dennis (Audrey) and David (Charlene) Kuykendall; sisters, Rebecca (Tony) and Amy (Jeff) Ficarella; nieces and nephews, Samantha (Matthew) Judson, Kelli (Peter) Hawryschuk, Louis Rapa, Kelsey Kuykendall, Josh (Amanda) Loucks, Jordan Rapa, Arin Loucks and Vanessa Kuykendall; K9 companion and #1, Vino; as well as her large extended family. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by a niece, Mallory Kuykendall.
