Trina Kay Andretti


Family-Placed Obituary

Trina Kay Andretti, 29, of Austin, TX, died Wednesday, April 14, 2004, at Brackenridge Hospital. Trina was born in Great Falls, MT, on November 20, 1974, and had lived in Austin since 1999. Trina was a motive power in the world - one of the people that made things work. She was a natural leader with such energy, drive and determination paired with a vivacious personality that no one she met could help but be endeared to her. Her love for life was only surpassed by her love of helping others and that help was always given with an unforgettably warm smile. She discovered that her natural calling was to be a Police Officer and she was in the process of fulfilling that dream. She will be deeply missed by all of her family and everyone else that she has touched in her life. Trina is survived by her husband, Christopher Andretti; her father, Richard Carpenter; three sisters, Anna Perkins, Lisa Pimental, Bonnie Carpenter; two brothers, Brandon Carpenter and Darick Carpenter; numerous nieces and nephews and innumerable friends. Other family members included her mother-in-law, Aida Andretti; father-in-law, David Andretti; and sister-in-law, Kimberly Bower. She was preceded in death by her mother, Elfonda Kay Carpenter of Benton City, WA.
