Tracey maintained ties to Disney and show business throughout her life, appearing in the film “Westward Ho the Wagons!” and touring with the Mouseketeers. She later served as a publicist to musician Frank Zappa and worked at Warner Bros.

“The Mickey Mouse Club” proved a sensation with its Oct. 3, 1955, debut. It flourished for two seasons, then was reduced to a half-hour for two more. Tracey stayed for its four-year run.
