Tricia Jeanne Trepanier
Tricia passed away, one month shy of her 58th birthday, peacefully and with dignity, on Friday the 26th of August, in the company of family and friends after a long and courageous battle against cancer.
She leaves behind Chris Becker, her loving partner, soul-mate, and best friend of more than twenty years, and her devoted son Ivan Burvill (John). She was predeceased by her mother Dena some 10 years ago. She leaves to grieve, her father Claude, and her younger siblings Janet (Willard), Judy (Dan), Paul (Michele), Lori (Dave) and Denyse. A much loved niece of Aggie, Rita and Raymond (Dolly) on her mother’s side and Andre (Sandra), Louis (Cecile) and Peter (Barbara) on her father’s. A very special aunt to John (Bev), Tess and Abby, Rudy and Jake. A much loved cousin and aunt to her extensive family in Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia and also an admired and much loved member of the Becker family in England. Tricia will be remembered for her deep love of friends and family, her character and personality, her generosity and hospitality, and her willingness to help others, whatever their circumstances, in times of need. She loved photography, her flowers and her garden, her collection of Inuit and Native art, craft fairs and Pow Wows, the ballet and the Bluesfest, travel, and especially Cape Breton Island and east coast music. She walked, swam, and rode her bicycle as often as she could. She motorcycled in the summer and skied in the winter, surprising many people with her skill and daring. She had an illustrious career in the Federal Civil Service, starting from a term position as a computer operator at Statistics Canada. It did not take long for her intelligence and work ethic to be recognized. She progressed rapidly and amongst other positions was Director of Transportation Statistics, during which time she represented Canada on numerous occasions at trilateral talks with Mexico and the US. She finished her time at Stats as Director of Enterprise Statistics. After a brief period at HRDC she found her niche as Chief Information Officer at the Department of Fisheries and Oceans and Director General of Information Management and Technology Services, where her sound technical background, interpersonal skills, and dedication were put to the test with the development and implementation of the IT Sustainability Program. All this being said Tricia felt that the crowning achievement of her career was her contribution, as one of the founders, to the establishment of the first Federal Government funded Day Care Centre, which was established at Statistics Canada, after 8 years of effort, and from which she gained nothing personally. Since her diagnosis some 3 years ago, at the time of her retirement, Tricia has shown remarkable strength and determination despite several setbacks, and numerous stays in hospital in Ottawa and in Montreal. She sustained this strength and determination with the love and support given her by her family, her life long friends, her former colleagues, and her new friends in the Ottawa Colorectal Cancer Support Group, of which she was an avid supporter. A very special thanks must go out to the GNO, her “Girls Night Out” friends, who have demonstrated such love and support to Tricia and her family. Without this outstanding friendship life would have been so much harder for her, especially in the last few months, as they brought her so much joy with their visits. Thanks must also go to the staff of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Centre, the staff of the Pain Clinic at the General Hospital, all the doctors and staff on 5E at the General where Tricia spent so much time, and finally to all the staff and doctors on the 5th floor of the Bruyere where Tricia spent her last weeks. She thought them all wonderful. In lieu of flowers Tricia asked that a charitable donation be made to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation or another charity of your choice. Friends and family may visit from 2 to 4 or 7 to 9 on Friday the 9th of September at the Tubman Funeral Home, Nepean., at 3440 Richmond Rd. (between Bayshore and Bells Corners). Service to be in the chapel at 1.30pm on Saturday, the 10th.
Now Tricia is at peace. She will not be forgotten and is already missed; she truly was one in a million.
