Just learned of Tracy's passing from watching Alone. I loved being able to learn of Tracy from watching the show. I feel a sort of loss. I loved her reason for leaving the show because she truly stayed to who she was. May her beautiful soul rest easy.

Just watched Ms. Wilson on Alone and was fascinated by her story, what she had to say and her skills as a survivalist. I am profoundly sorry to hear she passed. She is an icon as a strong, independent, intelligent and skilled woman. May her wonderful soul rest in peace.

I, like a lot of others, was watching alone and had to pause to google this mind blowing, amazing, woman! Seeing that she passed away breaks my heart. She was inspiring on this earth and her incredible integrity and perseverance are inspiring still.

We met Tracy last year at the Mansfield Covered Bridge Festival where we were set up as vendors. My kids especially loved her and she was so patient and kind with them. She was so special and is very much missed!
