Trisha met Philip Nelson in 2005, by chance, at an event that both were reluctant to attend. They were later married on October 25, 2008 and from that union Morgann was born. Morgann was the biggest blessing in Trisha’s life. She loved nothing more than being a wife and mother. Trisha got a job with LifeCare and she worked in Greenbush, Roseau, and Warroad. Through her work she was very special to many people and touched peoples’ lives in miraculous ways.
Trisha struggled with a bone disease and had many struggles in life, going through numerous corrective surgeries. With all of her struggles Trisha never let it hold her back, she cherished every day and had a very positive and happy attitude.
