Tracy Hargis

Tracy Hargis passed away peacefully on August 30, 2022 at the age of 54. She was born

April 21, 1968, in Springfield, Missouri to Michael and Barbara Sue (Bagnall) Durnin. She

married Stephen Hargis on January 22, 1994 in Las Vegas, and they were partners in life for

28 years, having their son, John-Michael, in 1998.

Tracy founded and operated Royal T Ranch and Royal T Rustics. She trained, boarded and

bred horses, but most of all was “Mama T” to many young women to whom she taught

English equestrian arts over the years. Most of these women are still part of the family. In

recent years, Tracy taught herself sola wood flower coloring and arranging, creating

numerous beautiful weddings as well as home décor. She also taught herself woodworking

and not only refurbished vintage and antique pieces but built pieces herself from old and

re-purposed wood.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents Elmer and Susie Bagnall, and Philip and

Evelyn Durnin, as well as her uncle Daniel Bagnall. Tracy is survived by her husband

Stephen Hargis; son John-Michael Hargis and partner Soraya Cordero; parents Barbara and

Michael Durnin; sister Kelly (Jeffrey) Thieme; nephews Adam Thieme and Joseph Thieme;

aunts Jane Durnin and Dorothy Bagnall; uncle Kent (Lindsay) Bagnall; cousins Cathy (Mario)

Impemba, Hannah Bagnall, Lydia Bagnall (David) Hardin, Brett (Jenny) Impemba, and Daniel

(Meggan) Impemba; step-children Jason (Jeanneace) Hargis, Erica Hargis (Monte ) Conner

and Marisa Hargis (partner Zak Rzik); step-grandchildren Aidan Conner, Nolen Conner,

Mitchel Conner, Zayne Rzik and Mia Rzik as well as many other friends and relatives.

Per Tracy’s wishes, a Celebration of Life will be held at the Royal T Ranch on Saturday,

September 24 at 1:00 pm. Memorial donations in lieu of flowers may be made to the Rolla

Animal Shelter.
