Patricia Zoan Schuh-Trifforiot, affectionately known as Tricia, was called home to heaven on August 21st.
Tricia was born in Fresno but always called Napa home after moving with her family in 1956. She graduated from Justin Sienna High School in 1971. After graduation, being the independent adventurer she always was, Tricia spent time traveling all across Europe and the Middle East. She eventually settled in Paris, France where she had her sons. After 10 years in Paris, Tricia returned to Napa with her family where she worked for Beringer Wine Estates for 15 years. Throughout her life, Tricia impacted the lives of many through her time spent volunteering in church, schools, and hospice. Helping others was her passion and her gentle, patient spirit helped many during their times of need.
Tricia had a larger than life personality. She was generous and loving with a splash of sass and spunk! Her memory and spirit will continue to live in the hearts of everyone she touched.
Tricia is survived by her sons, Christian and Rémy (Katie) Trifforiot; brothers Bill (Ernestine) and Jim (Teresa) Schuh; and sister Elizabeth (Larry) Schuh-Pina along with many nieces and nephews who adored her. She is preceded in death by her parents, Ed and Zoan Schuh, and brother Christopher Schuh.
The family would like to thank the loving caregivers from Hired Hands Homecare and Collabria Hospice for their kindness and professionalism that allowed Tricia to be comfortable while she spent her final days with loved ones.
Donations in Tricia’s name can be made to Collabria Hospice, St Jude’s Children’s Hospital, or the American Cancer Society.
