Mrs. Trindle was born in Kansas. The family of seven children soon moved to Oregon. Her father was a telegrapher for the railroad in the little coastal town of Moehler. She attended high school at Nehalem, where she had good memories of drama and swimming activities.

After graduation, she went to work as a legal secretary. She was employed by Sen. Charles McNary as his personal secretary and was called to Washington, D.C., to assist the senator during the time of Pearl Harbor.
It was in Washington, D.C., that she married her husband, Bill Trindle. They had met earlier in Salem.
After their marriage, they lived at North Powder from 1955 to 1960. They later moved to Haines where they have lived since.

Mrs. Trindle’s life was based on providing a loving home and constant sincerity. She had a love of the outdoors and was active in skiing, swimming, hiking, fishing and gardening. She was a member of the Haines Mutual Improvement Club and the Baker County Garden Club.

Survivors include her husband, Bill; and their six children, Bill, Mike, Ed, Tom, Alice and Pat; 17 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren; and loving daughters-in-law and partners. She leaves a legacy of home, caring and unconditional love.
