When his beloved mother Alma died earlier this year, singer, songwriter, actor, producer, restaurant entrepreneur and St. Charles resident Donnie Wahlberg was very public in his grief. The closeness of the Wahlberg family – Wahlberg has 7 siblings – was on full display at one of the most difficult times in anyone’s life.
Recently, Wahlberg went public again with his appreciation for his sister Tracey. In an Instagram post, Wahlberg thanked his sister for her her “guidance, her strength and her grace” in dealing with the tragedies that have struck the family.

Little is know about Tracey Wahlberg. Even though she is a member of one of the most successful and famous entertainment families in the world, she has somehow managed to keep a remarkably low profile. She does not appear in the reality television series Wahlburgers or anywhere else.
But she is obviously integral to the huge but tightly-knit family.
“My sister — what an amazing human being she is. She stays out of the “spotlight”, and may give me an eye roll for posting this, but she shines brighter than any star in the sky. She is absolutely the rock in our family and we could not have managed this past year without her guidance, her strength and her grace. I love you, Tracey! ❤️🙏🏼 #Family
Wahlberg lives with his wife, actress and celebrity Jenny McCarthy in St. Charles.
