Sept. 15, 1974-Nov. 17, 2013
Resident of Antioch
Our Trina passed away on Sunday, November 17th, peacefully in her sleep, after a courageous 3 year battle with Breast Cancer. She enriched the lives of those who knew her with her unwavering desire to educate and encourage others with cancer, her selfless dedication to her family, endless determination and positive spirit that never faltered, even in her darkest hours.
Trina was born in Susanville, CA in 1974, graduated from John Swett High School, Crockett in 1992 and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Human Resources from Cal State Hayward in 2002. After a short employment, holding a corporate position with Albertson's, Trina decided the best place for her to be was at home to raise her children. Her children were blessed to have such a beautiful and loving mother who cherished every moment with them. She spent countless hours helping in the class rooms, making amazing snacks and volunteering on outings.
Trina is survived by her husband of 10 years, Michael; her beautiful children Kevin, 19, Brandon, 9 and Karina, 6; her mother Melody, her Uncle Chuck and siblings Michael, Brooke, Franklin and Joey, her mother-in-law, Joan and sister in law, Staci.
Friends and family are invited to the Celebration of Life service Sunday, December 1st. Services will start at 1:00pm, so please show up by 1:30pm, and arrive on Trina time.
In lieu of flowers please make a donation to Camp Kesem Berkeley in Trina's honor; a wonderful organization that works with children who have lost parents to cancer.
