August 3, 1983—March 7, 2019

   The following is a public service announcement from Ruby L. Jimenez Trainor, SWF Age 35.

   Due to foreseen circumstances I can no longer come to the phone, respond to your texts, Facebook Posts, Instagram, Snapchats, Tweets, or any other means of communication. I know y’all are just devastated and it will probably take you years of therapy to get over it! Well guess what, “Sorry, Not Sorry!”

   I fought like crazy to get this prime choice piece of real estate and the best part is I don’t have to live with my mom anymore! I’m afraid that I need to apologize to my children, Devon, Aliyah, and Ariella, because let’s face it, you’re still stuck with Grandma! Lol

   I tried to kick cancer in the ass, but cancer kicked back and finally won the fight on March 7, 2019. Jesus was driving on the final leg of this journey and brought me up to heaven to be with many family members and friends, some of which I hadn’t seen for quite a while.

   I was born on August 3, 1983 in Tomah, WI. I have three beautiful children whom I am leaving behind, and they are my pride and joy - Devon James Trainor-Chacon, Aliyah Marie Trainor-Velasco, and Ariella Arlene Trainor-Jimenez who reside in Sparta, WI. I also leave behind another child I considered my own, Adela Lynn Velasco.

   I am further survived by my parents, Lynne Marie Trainor and Martin John Trainor of Sparta, WI; maternal grandmother, (Nana) Arlene L Birkeness, Tomah, WI; two honorary siblings whom I have called my brother and sister for over 20+ years, Amy McKinzie, Sparta, WI, and Keith Diamond, Milwaukee, WI; many aunts, uncles, other relatives and friends.

   Preceding me in death were my paternal grandparents, Thomas J. Trainor of Eau Claire and Iva K Trainor of Tomah, WI; maternal grandfather, (Papa) Wayne A Birkeness; other close relatives and friends.

   My Life will be Celebrated on Wednesday, March 13, 2019, 11:00 a.m. at St. Paul Ev. Lutheran Church, 525 Superior Ave., Tomah. Pastor Curt S. Backhaus will officiate. I will be laid to rest at Mt. Vernon Cemetery, Tomah.

   Relatives and friends are invited to gather in my honor on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the Sonnenburg Family Funeral Home, 801 E. Monowau Street, Tomah, and on Wednesday at the church from 10 a.m. until the time of the service.

   Online condolences may be given at

   In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to my children, Sparta Area Cancer Society or a charitable organization of your choice.
