Julie CookChris and family, my sincere condolences to all of you. I am still in shock over this. Thinking of all of you and sending all my love and strength. Zellers brought us together but she kept us together when we all moved in different directions. She always thought of us, even during the pandemic, writing letters to check in. Although we hadn't seen each other in a few years, I will miss her and her kindness. My condolences also to our "Zellers family" xoxo
Laurel BatzoldI too was part of the Zellers family in the 90's that Trish took under her wing and treated like her own family. I was a single mom with 2 kids when I moved to London and met Trish. She babysat my kids when I was workin evenings and weekends and took them on outings and kept them entertained. She was so kind and generous and I was so happy for her when she married Chris. She was so happy! Trish was taken way too soon and she will be greatly missed.
karen cawleyEven though we are distant cousins Trish was taken way too early and we feel the loss, she is second generation of the Oddeholm family in Canada. There are many of us older than Trish and we were flabbergasted to hear about her passing. Raise your glasses and have a drink to Trish - until we all meet again! The Irish/Norwegian Brampton Clan Your cousins Karen, Kathy, Kevin & Sean - you are with our brother Willie now as are all your Uncles & Aunts.
Ginger AbbottTheresa, Lisa and your family, I send my deepest condolences to you all. May the memories you have hold you up during this time. You are in my thoughts.
