Trina Ruth Ann (Ramsey-DuBry) Slinkard

Trina Ruth Ann (Ramsey-DuBry) Slinkard, was born on July 24, 1978, in Salt Lake City, Utah, to Walter Ross and Bernice/Becky (Horney) Ramsey. Shortly after her birth, she and her mother returned back to Riverton, WY (where she spent most of her life). On March 21, 1981, Trina’s mother remarried Donald Gene DuBry, and he would continue to raise Trina as his own. Trina became a big sister in 1982 to Clarinda (Chloe) Dawn DuBry and again in 1983 to Tabitha Yvonne Nina DuBry (Viergutz). The trio spent their youth raising rabbits and traveling to rabbit shows with Donald and Becky. Her interest in animals and 4H eventually led to the love Trina had for FFA once she reached high school. On March 4, 1998, Trina married Troy Slinkard and had 4 beautiful children— Cordelle Anthony Jameson, Machenna Ashley Nichole, Kawlie Virginia Elizabeth, and Guage Nathaniel Hunter— before the couple separated. By 2012, Trina found her soul-mate and wife— Virginia Ramsey. In 2013, Trina and her family moved to Libby, MT, to be close to her parents and sisters. During her time in Libby, she had been employed by Lincoln Lanes and Harlow’s School Bus Service. Trina was forever charting her own unique path with a multitude of accomplishments and interests. She found reward as a volunteer EMT/Firefighter in Wyoming, traveling the country as a CDL truck driver, and driving school bus in Libby, MT. Her favorite hobbies were to be outdoors or at lakes with her family and friends. Additionally, she will forever be known for her fantastic baking abilities, especially her cheesecakes. She was an animal lover through and through, always having a furry companion by her side. Trina was a genuine, hilarious, vivacious and loving daughter, mother, sister, wife, and friend. Her laughter brightened the world and could be heard from miles away. Those qualities were obvious to everyone around her. Unfortunately, a battle with depression made her blind to her insatiable shine and she could not see how cherished and beloved she truly was. Trina lost her battle on the evening of April 19, 2016.
