So sad to hear of Brenda’s passing. I worked with her at MQP and she was such a wonderful colleague and friend. She was always so positive and helpful! Condolences to her family.

I was a student of Mrs. Tricco in the late 90s. She instilled in me a love for Science and an appreciation of my own handwriting, whether or not it was as curly and round as my classmates. Saddened to read of her passing- my thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.

We were very saddened to read that Mrs. Tricco had passed away. We have fond memories of her from her teaching days at MQP, where she taught both our son John and our daughter Susan. Also, John and Terry were friends in their childhood and teenage days. We extend our deepest sympathy to Terry especially and to all the rest of the family and friends. May you all find comfort in the knowledge that her spirit has been set free and her journey continues. “Speak her name and she will be forever by your side.”

To the Tricco and Griffin families,
I am so sorry to hear of the death of Brenda. I always enjoyed seeing her when she was visiting New Brunswick. I have a small framed picture of “Laddie” that Brenda sent to me many years ago which I have on my kitchen shelf …a nice keepsake in her memory. Thinking of your families at this sad time.

Dear Jonathan, Terry and family,

We were deeply saddened to read of Brenda’s passing. I, Barbara, enjoyed the honor of having Brenda as my teaching colleague for many years. She was also a kind and devoted Godmother to my daughter, Allison. Brenda will forever continue to be a part of our treasured memories.
