She graduated with honors through the Neihardt Scholars program from Wayne State College, Wayne, Nebraska, in May of 1991, with a major in music merchandising and a minor in business.

LaRayne, I am so sorry to hear of Trisha's death. I read her name and replies on FB from Jan S. and others, to you, but did not make the connection until I read her full obit just a few minutes ago (Fri, Jan, 22, 8:21AM). Now it all makes sense. (The name Gemelke rang my bell). You have my sincere sympathy and I know God will have His loving arms around you now, and forever. May the joys you knew and the love you shared with Trisha bring memories to your heart! I know and YOU know that she will be sorely missed by many. May God keep YOU and the FAMILY in His love and grace. Again, deepest sympathy to all of you! Peace. Rosemary Raasch
