My family is so sorry for the loss of your mother. She has sat behind us in church for years. She has always greeted our three children with a smile. For many years, she brought the kids a snack to eat during church. We will miss our warm friend, "Miss Trish". Please know her Greenville Alliance Church family is praying for you during this time!

Dear Rick, Ann & Justin, Trish was always such a happy, friendly and very generous woman. I will remember her from our holidays with my Mom when she would join us for our family gatherings. She would always bring something to contribute to the meal and would bring a gift to the "hostess" of the party. I will always remember her laugh, her smile & the love she showed for her family, Rick, Ann & Justin. She was a very kind soul. May you find peace and comfort in days to come, and happy memories to replace your sadness you feel in your heart now. Love from Aunt Fran & Uncle Dan

So very sorry for the family, known Patricia for many, many years, we worked together @ good old Struthers Wells. She was definitely unique, and one of a kind, very kind-hearted.

So sorry to hear of the passing of Trish. She has been our friend since helping us buy our house in PA in 1996. We also were members of Greenville Alliance Church along with her. We have since moved to NC and when we visit she was one person we always looked for in church. She was very special to us and we were so saddened by the news. Looking forward to seeing her again and believing she is rejoicing in the arms of her Savior. Prayers extended for your family. In Christ, Russell and Donna Rowley
