At Tracey Tyler’s neatly arranged desk, there is a red light glowing on the phone. It’s a voicemail, waiting for the reporter who never stopped working, even during two separate bouts of cancer.

Tyler died Wednesday. She was 50.

When she was diagnosed with breast cancer more than two years ago, Tyler drove from her Acton home to a Hamilton hospital for radiation, and then she'd show up at the Star for work.
