May she rest in everlasting peace. Trea was a godsend during my daughter’s second grade. She showed great compassion, intelligence and humor.

David, Ken and I will miss Trea's sparkling personality and we remember all the fun we have had over the many years of friendship. We are praying for you in this very difficult time but find reassurance that she is now in God's hands. Love, Ken and Pat Schafer

Love to Trea,s dear ones. She was my roommate at Skidmore for all four years and we certainly did have lots of fun because of her great zest for life and sense of humor. I was so blessed to have her decorate our rooms and take so much joy in doing so. I had no interest in that and was relieved that she jumped in with such enthusiasm. As usual, she did a fine job! Rest peacefully my dear friend

Don’t think of her as gone away her journeys just begun, life holds so many facets this earth is only one. Just think of her as resting from the sorrow and the tears, in a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days and years. Think how she must be wishing that we could know today, how nothing but our sadness can really pass away. And think of her as living in the hearts of those she touched…....for nothing loved is ever lost and she was loved so much. By Ellen Brenneman

A beautiful memorial service for a beautiful human being - my friend for 44 years. As so many said at her memorial service, Trea created so much love! "And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make."

Trea was incredibly passionate about advocating for children's needs in school. She came and spoke at one of my dyslexia parent group meetings at Laughlin Children's Center and we had many conversations about dyslexia in children. I will always be grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from her. May she rest in peace. My condolences to her family.
