She loved to babysit her grandchildren, read and tend her flowers.  Trish spent her last 20 years living at Johnson Lake, Nebraska with her husband, where she enjoyed watching her children and grandchildren enjoy all the lake activities.  Trish loved living at the lake and enjoyed every season and entertaining family and friends.
