Trisha attended the Schuyler County Church of Faith in Lancaster, Missouri when her health allowed. As her health began to fail, she would faithfully attend the Downing Christian Church, where she was a member, by social media. Her faith in God grew stronger each and every Sunday. 

Trisha may have battled health issues for many years, but it did not keep her from loving life and her family. She was an avid gardener and loved all things flowers, especially sunflowers. Trisha also enjoyed finding four leaf clovers, astrology, mushroom hunting, and foosball! Throughout her career, she enjoyed capturing life through her photography business and sharing her love of flowers through her flower shop.
