Trista Marie Flores White
(April 23, 1984 - March 19, 2019)
Trista Marie Flores White passed away suddenly on March 19, 2019, at Powell Valley Healthcare. She was 34 years old.
Trista was born in Greybull to Rick and Zann Flores on April 23, 1984. She was the oldest child and had two brothers, Rick and Stephen. After her father accepted a teaching job, the family moved to Oregon where she went to school. When Trista was a teenager she moved back to Powell and lived with her grandmother, Esperanza, who she loved very much. Trista passed away on the day of her grandmother’s funeral.
She attended Northwest College where she met and fell in love with her husband, Troy White. They were married March 22, 2003, in the Billings Montana Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She was a lifelong member of the church and loved to teach the children, and they in turn loved her. Troy and Trista lost their first child, Connor, on Thanksgiving Day in 2003. They were then blessed with their son, Tallin, in 2004. They lost their only daughter, Serenity, in July of 2005, but then again had the joy of having Tayson in 2008. She loved her boys and always knew her other two babies were in heaven. She can now be with them, her father and grandmother.
Trista enjoyed activities with her family. They participated in Tiquando as a family and she always encouraged her sons in their sports and music activities. She never missed a church or school activity for her children, and even many for her nieces, nephews and friends.
Trista always had a smile for everyone she greeted. She had a way of always remembering everyone’s birthday and special things about them, especially the little children. Trista volunteered her time to helping others. She served as a primary teacher for the Sunbeams, a calling she loved. She also served as the blood coordinator for the blood drive every six months for over six years. She helped with the OurKids program for autistic children and many other programs. She will be very missed.
Trista was preceded in death by her two children, Connor Joseph and Serenity Lynn; her father Rick Flores; father-in-law Donald White; her grandmother Esperanza Flores and grandfather Hyrum Darold Williams.
She is survived by her husband Troy White, sons Tallin James and Tayson Cameron, mother Zann Flores; brothers Rick and Stephen Flores, mother-in-law Ann White, and many family-in-laws, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
A funeral is planned for Tuesday, March 26, at 1 p.m. at the LDS Church - Avenue E in Powell.
Condolences may be sent to Thompson Funeral Home, PO Box 807, Powell, WY 82435, or there is a memorial account set up for Troy and the boys at First Bank of Wyoming in Powell.
