Freda (Traci) Gail Buehner (née Lowry) passed away unexpectedly on Monday, August 29th, 2022 at her home in Parma Ohio. She was Born September 5th, 1952 at Tinker Air-force Base in Midwest City Oklahoma to the late Herbert George Lowry and the late Barbara Ann Lowry (née Taylor), where they lived in Norman Oklahoma.
She is survived by her husband, George Buehner of Parma; son Ryan Buehner of Parma; daughter Ashleigh Shumney (née Buehner) of Parma and daughter Eden Buehner of Tallmadge. She was a loving, devoted "Grandma Traci" to Cameron Shumney and Taytem Shumney, an aunt/great aunt to many, and a soul mother to countless friends of her children. Also surviving is a brother, Dale Lowry. Her brother Jimmy Lowry preceded her in death in 2020.
In her adolescent years, Freda Gail decided to be referred to as "Traci" due to the popular, at the time, Dick Tracy comics. She was a 1970 graduate of Altus High school in Altus Oklahoma, where she lived with her Aunt Beth Lowry Nelson. Her cousins Steve Nelson, Phil Nelson and the late Rodney Nelson lovingly referred to her as their sister.
Traci lived in many different areas including Oklahoma, Missouri, Colorado, Florida, California, The Azores, Thailand, Maine and Virginia before moving to Cleveland Ohio in 1979. She and George were married on December 31st, 1980, starting their family right away in Cleveland; moving to Parma Ohio in the summer of 1995.
Living her life as a Homemaker, she shared her love of food, photography, music, history, natural beauty within the world, tarot, zodiac, astrology, movies and soap operas with her husband, children, grandchildren and friends. Traci had a smile that could light up a room, an infectious laugh and a sense of humor that we all will greatly miss.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests honoring Traci's memory with donations to a charity of your choice, in her name.
Memorial services are private to immediate family only, but extended family and friends are invited to visit with them to celebrate Traci's life on Wednesday, September 7th from 5:00-8:00 PM at Corleone's, 5669 Broadview Rd. Parma, OH.
