    Trina Marie Hancock passed away at her home in Richfield, Utah, March 15, 2009 after a five-year battle with breast cancer.

    She was born March 7, 1962 in Rexburg, Idaho, a daughter of Jay Lloy and Sharon Richards Romrell.

    Trina was such an amazing woman who was always so full of life, love and compassion that those of us who were lucky enough to know her will be forever grateful that God would give us such a wonderful mother, wife, daughter, grandmother, sister and friend.

    Trina raced for the cure and fought as hard as she possibly could to keep going. She was always optimistic in her journey and full of hope.

    Trina was a Moab resident for seven years before relocating to Richfield, Utah in 1999.

    She is survived by husband, Bill Hancock, sons, Dedrick (Mindy) Hancock, and Cody Hancock; mother-in-law, Cecilia Uden; parents, Jay and Elynor Romrell, and Sharon Mead; brothers, Lloy (Diane) Romrell, Scott (Sandy) Verde, Troy (Laura) Verde, Brandon (Misty) Verde; sisters, Angie Whytock, J’Nette (Steven) Bonner, Coleen (Scott) Hayes, and Lorie (Dan) Felix; granddaughter, Kaylee Hancock, who was the light of her life, and many nieces and nephews.

    She was preceded in death by brother, Wade Verde.

    In lieu of flowers, donations to Komen’s SLC Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Team Trina-Marie, would be appreciated.
