Trish F. Towle 11/26/1933 - 02/15/2014 Trish grew up in the Chicago suburb of Wilmette, Il along with her two sisters and two brothers. She was a lover of art and spent many hours in the Chicago Museums, her favorite being the Chicago Art Institute. Her dream was to move across the country to the "wild" Southwest, to become independent, and attend the U-of-A, where she met the love of her life. She was a passionate elementary school teacher
for 20-years - her greatest joy was teaching children to read. She passed the love of reading onto her children and grandchildren. Upon retirement, she studied art and became an accomplished watercolorist. Her love of nature was reflected in her paintings. She was a very gracious, generous and compassionate woman who loved her family, friends, many dogs, the desert and the sea, and sharing her wonderful cooking. Trish is survived by Bill her husband of 60-years; her five children, Cathleen Hall, Cynthia Towle (Darron Fick), Deborah Towle (Steve Diebolt), Patty Towle, Bill Towle, Jr. as well as seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild. In lieu of flowers or donations, Trish would appreciate reaching out in kindness to others. A Private Family Service was held. Arrangements by HUDGEL'S SWAN FUNERAL HOME.
