FORT MYERS, Fla. - The father of Trisha Lynn Williams says there are still questions that need to be answered. Williams was found dead in an Edison State College classroom Friday morning.
"She became a beautiful, young woman, dedicated wife and a wonderful mother," said her father, Greg Holmgren.
Holmgren says his youngest daughter was a dedicated wife and mother.
"We are a large family, very close knit and we were all completely stunned," he said.
Williams was a stay-at-home mom, raising nine-year old Ryder and six-year old Camryn.
She was also a motivated student, taking night courses at Edison State College with plans of becoming a teacher.
"For her to die with us not knowing the circumstances or the cause, that's the most troubling thing in all of this," said Holmgren.
According to her family, Tricia tried to call her husband Brett from campus around 6:45 p.m. Thursday evening, but he missed her call. When he called her back, she didn't answer. The school claims she died of a medical condition. But loved ones say they have unanswered questions.
"An autopsy was not done. We obviously thought it should have been and we just can't imagine why the me decided not to find out the cause of death," her father stated. While they wait for those answers, the family says they are holding onto their faith.
"We don't understand but we know that believing in God, there is a plan and we are willing to accept that."
The funeral is being held Tuesday 11:00 a.m. at Grace United Methodist Church. The family is asking any donations be made out to the American Heart Association in Trisha's name.
