She graduated from State University Teacher's College at Plattsburgh in 1955 with a B.S. in School Nurse-Teaching. She took her first job as a school nurse in Ballston Spa, N.Y., where she met and married her husband of 60 years, Charles L. Trieble. She and her husband settled in Needham Heights, Mass., where they raised their four children. For many years she worked as the Administrator at Wellesley Manor Nursing Home, before moving to the ICU at Glover Memorial Hospital, in Needham. She eventually returned to school nursing in the Needham Public Schools, where she was adored. She and her husband retired to Venice, Fla., in 1991, where she made many new friends, volunteered in the library at Venice Regional Hospital, and was an active member in her church, where she especially enjoyed singing in the choir. She will be remembered for her quick wit, great cooking, and deep devotion to family and friends.
