    BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - A Broken Arrow woman and a 17-year-old boy were killed in crash Friday night near 101st and County Line.

    FOX23 talked to the family of Tracy Fulps on Sunday about her life and how they plan to remember her. 

    Fulps left behind a husband, two children, and a big extended family. Her loved ones said they will always remember the joy and light she brought to life.

    "My Aunt Tracy was the personification of joy itself," said Diandra Delso. "She was so funny and smart. And she knew how to work a room and make everyone in it feel special."

    Police are still trying to determine what lead to the crash that killed Fulps and a 17-year-old boy, but they do know the drivers were going in opposite directions when one of them swerved into traffic.

    Delso said the tragedy has been a shock for everyone who knew Fulps.

    "It was very sudden. But they are working on it. They understand that she is with Christ. With the Lord," Delso said.

    Fulps was a popular cheer coach and helped countless kids get their start in the sport.

    "She was like everyone's Tiger mom," Delso said.

    She also worked at the Tiger Den in Broken Arrow. Some laid a memorial for her there this weekend.

    "She's an exceptional lady," said Chad Lott, one of Fulps' coworkers.

    He said there has been an outpouring of support from the people she's touched over the years.

    "Friday night, I was on the phone until midnight," Lott said.

    As he, Fulps' family, and their entire community mourn her loss, Lott said he wants people to remember one thing about her.

    "Just how great she was. Truly inside and out. She's beautiful," Lott said.

    Fulps' funeral will be held at The Assembly in Broken Arrow on Jan. 27 at 1 p.m.

    Police have not released the identity of the teen killed in the crash, but Broken Arrow district leaders said that grief counselors will be available to students on Monday.
