Ode to Katrina
thank you for being you
I love the way you said,
Here I am
This is me.
To talk to you
was to fall
in love with you
all of you
(poem by Nicole Scoggins) TITCHENAL, Katrina E. "Trina"
We suddenly lost our dear Katrina on November 5th. The memorial service will be held at Trinity Baptist Church, 6528 N. Monroe, Spokane, WA 99205 on Saturday November 17th at 1pm.
Katrina was born in Reno, Nevada on July, 1 1974. She graduated from Rogers High School in Spokane and continued on to receive a BA degree in English from Seattle University.
Katrina loved people and was an outspoken advocate for their needs. She helped disadvantaged students speak their truth through the ACHIEVE program at Highline Community College in Des Moines, WA. She was a talented artist, poet, and a bold spirit.
She is survived by her stepmother Kathy (Randy); her brothers Anthony (Tawna), Stacy (Melissa); and sister Suzette; grandmother Claudene Uttke; and nieces and nephews and other family and friends.
Katrina is preceded in death by her father John Titchenal and mother Judy Haglund.
You left us too soon; we were not done learning from you yet.
