Elizabeth Ann (Haskett) Trietsch,78 of Home Place, passed away in her home Saturday, February 12,2022. Elizabeth “Betty Ann”, or “Liz” as she later became known, was born in Hamilton County May 4, 1943, to William and Aletha (Games) Haskett, the sixth of their seven children. She grew up in western Clay Township, graduating from Carmel High School in 1961.
In her senior year, Liz met the love of her life, Jon Leon Weikal (later changed to Trietsch). They were married in White Chapel Church on November 19,1961 and shared 51 years of marriage before his passing in 2013.
Upon his retirement, Jon opened Trietsch Workshop where Liz worked at caning chairs while Jon repaired furniture. They enjoyed working together until 2011. Elizabeth reveled in baking cookies for the police and fire departments at Christmas time, as well as sharing with friends and neighbors.
Sharing the wonders and experiences of life with her children brought so much love and joy to Liz. She became “Grandma” to five of the neighbor’s daughters, Amy, Heather, Melissa, Amy and Angie. She dearly loved each one.
In addition to her parents, Liz was preceded in death by her husband, Jon; three brothers, Douglas, George, and Philip Haskett; two sisters, Julia “Judy” Hohl and Patricia “Patty” Monroe.
