Granny was born to Northern Italian immigrant parents and her Feisty talian roots ran deep! She was famous for her homemade lasagna, and her love of all things Italian. She was born Tina Angela Trienens in Richmond, Virginia. Her mother’s large extended family of 6 siblings, the Chiocca’s, reside there still and it was a favorite place for her to visit for reunions after she moved away. We appreciate and enjoy staying in touch with her cousin Cookie Gianinni whose mom, Francis, the last sibling, also recently passed away. Granny grew up and met her husband Bill in Phoenix, Arizona and they lived in California, MEXICO and Texas over the years. She spent the majority of her time here in Fort Worth and worked for the Federal Government as an auditor for the FDA, Packers and Stockyards. After her divorce, she worked tirelessly as a single mom to provide for her kids and see that they were able to go to college and get their degrees. Debra became a Veterinarian and Buddy an Engineer. She had copies of their college diplomas on her living room wall and was fiercely proud of all that they accomplished! Her next favorite brag was about her 5 grandchildren. They made her so proud as they grew up, made great careers and started families of their own. She was so happy to get to attend all of their weddings to date. She was a good money manager and was proud to own her own home and lived a happy life after retirement with her dog Milo and a few silly cats along the way. She was always willing to have the grandkids spend the night on the weekends and would spoil them rotten every chance she got. The greatgrands were so special to her in her later years, even though she didn’t get to spend as much time with them as she would have liked. She loved dogs, about as much as she loved chocolate and the color purple, and she always enjoyed the visiting pets that came to the nursing home! Trail Lake Nursing Home was her last home and the staff there were very fond of her wit and her dry sense of humor. She was never shy about how she felt, good or bad, and they were good to her in all situations. We so appreciate the people who are called on to care for our loved ones when we can’t. They don’t get the recognition they deserve for such a tough job. To all of the care givers of the world, THANK YOU!
To all of our friends and family, Debra, Ron, Buddy and I, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your kind thoughts, sincere prayers and all of your love during this time of life when it’s needed most!
Rest In Peace Dear Granny
