Betty Trimm Obituary
Betty Trimm

While surrounded by those she loved, Betty Trimm peacefully passed away on December 3, 2011 in Corvallis, OR at the age of 89. Born in Rochester, NY in 1922, she moved to Pasadena, CA five years later, residing there until marrying her sweetheart, Pat, upon his return from service in the Pacific in 1945. In 1955, the ever-growing Trimm family moved to Lunada Bay in Palos Verdes Estates. Active in her church, Betty was a tireless homemaker, avid reader and writer of poetry. She enjoyed dancing, music of the '40s and a good laugh. In 1980, she returned to the work force as a bookkeeper for the medical practices of family friends George Kiebler and Larry Colman. Preceded in death by her husband, Pat, of 57 years, Betty spent much of the remainder of her life in Corvallis OR to live what were among the happiest years of her life. Active and happy until the end, she is survived by Merritt Jensen of Corvallis, OR, her constant companion of the last six years, as well as her loving children, Anne, Leigh, Patrick, Garry, Laurie, Libby, Shelley, Carrie and Amy; 17 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren, and a host of friends who will always be grateful for the spirit, wit and humor of a truly unforgettable woman. A memorial service to celebrate her life will be held on Friday, January 6, 2012, 10:00 a.m. at Rolling Hills Covenant Church, 2222 Palos Verdes Drive North, Rolling Hills Estates, CA 90274.
