Theresa “Tracy” (D’Amato) Hennessy, 47, entered into eternal life on Thursday, February 12, 2015 at the National Institute of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, MD. Born in Passaic, NJ, daughter of Matthew and Rita (Schramm) D’Amato, she grew up in Edison before settling in Flemington in 1994.
Tracy was a graduate of Bishop George Ahr High School and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. She was a faithful parishioner of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Roman Catholic Church in Three Bridges where she taught CCD and attended bible study classes.

She cherished family gatherings, spending time at the beach and she never missed a single sporting event of her children.
Besides her parents, Tracy is survived by her devoted husband Richard F. Hennessy, Jr., loving children Richard F. Hennessy III (RJ), Kelly Lynn Hennessy and Madison Nicole Hennessy. She will be deeply missed by her dear brother Mark D’Amato, her in-laws, as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
