Tricia Small

December 5, 1960 — April 12, 2022


Patricia “Tricia” Marie Small, age 61 of Temple, left this world wrapped in the loving arms of God, surrounded by loved ones on Tuesday, April 12, 2022, at home. Graveside services will be held at 10 am Monday, April 18, 2022, at McDowell Cemetery in Belton, with Holly Thornall officiating.

Tricia was born on December 5, 1960, to TD and Pauline Turner in Brownwood, Texas. She met the love of her life, Stephen Small, in 1977 and they shared 44 years of wedded bliss, which included NASCAR, the New Orleans Saints, quirky humor, and deep love of family.

Tricia is preceded in death by her parents; brother, Owen; sister, Paula; brother, Kenneth; and brother, Terry.

She is survived by her loving husband, Steve; son, Stephen Jr. “Robbie”; daughter, Mandi and husband, Tim; brothers, James, Delan, and Danny; granddaughters, Tessa, and Lily; great granddaughter, Savannah; many nieces and nephews; and beloved fur babies, Allie, and Blossom.

We love Tricia dearly and will miss her very much.
