Barbara Jane Trimark, 83, of Kenosha, passed away on Friday, June 5, 2020, at Froedtert South Pleasant Prairie.

Born in Detroit, MI, on September 15, 1936, she was the daughter of the late Otto and Betty (Martin) Lerch.

On June 25, 1955, she married Gerald “Jerry” Trimark in Dearborn, MI. They spent 65 wonderful years together.

Barbara and Jerry raised three children in Redford Township, MI. Each attended a local university to start their careers in Healthcare and Information Technology.

Barbara worked at Arvin Industries for 17 years, as a sales associate for automobile parts until her retirement in 2000.

After she retired Barb and Jerry moved to Kenosha, WI where the entire family relocated to be near to each other. Loving the beach/ocean Barb and Jerry spent their time between Kenosha and Venice Beach, FL, to experience the full “Snowbird” stage of life. Most recently, they returned from FL on May 27th to spend time at home with family, as she felt her time was coming to an end.

Barb loved cooking, planting flowers, hummingbirds, butterflies, and spending holidays together with family. Throughout her life, Christ was an important figure in her life, with all aspects of his teaching. She was a member of Crossway Community Church and spent time daily reading and meditating on God’s word. She knew that Jesus Christ died for her sins and looked forward to seeing her Lord and Savior face to face.

Barbara is survived by her husband, Gerald Duane Trimark; daughter, Deborah E. Trimark; son, Jerry R. Trimark, with wife Betty; granddaughters, Hannah and Makayla; son, Jeffrey R. Trimark with wife Jenny; grandsons, Nicholas and Noah; brother, Richard Lerch with wife Susan; nieces and nephew, Amy, JoAnna, and Andy; brother-in-law, Mike Trimark and wife Gwen; and nephew and niece, Vincent and Beth.

For the safety of those most affected by the pandemic, visitation and service for extended family only will be held at CrossWay Community Church, 13905 75th St, Bristol, WI 53104 on Wednesday, June 10th starting at 10:00 am. Interment will be private at Green Ridge Cemetery. We request those in attendance to wear a mask or a face covering. We thank everyone for their understanding and cooperation during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, memorials to Cardiopulmonary Rehab at Froedtert Kenosha Hospital or Children’s Ministry at CrossWay Community Church in Bristol, WI would be appreciated by the family.

Dear Family,
This is cousin Shirley & Jerry Guest from Hot Springs Village AR. We are so grateful for the beautiful service and GOD's blessings and miracles with all the love He provides. I was very thankful to have the conversation Barbara and I had, when they were in Florida. Life is fragile and to have the support of family and friends with wonderful memories shared is a blessing.
Laughter is good medicine so I will share one call from Barbara when she was 16. Shirley help. I colored my hair and it turned purple! I could only suggest she try lemon juice and she might like is better green. Many memories helping watch out for Dick her brother so I would be there when he woke up and Barbara had some other chores to do. Our son and two daughter send their prayers and sym[athy to the family. How quickly the gifts of each day fly by and to cherish each day with grateful hearts. Our love and peace. Jerry and Shirley (Martin) Guest

Barb will be greatly missed. She was a beautiful woman, wonderful friend and our sister in the Lord. This is not the end though. We know we will one day meet again in Heaven because of what Jesus Christ has done for us all. (John 3:16). Barb was part of our family, and we were greatly blessed to have in our lives.
