Torrey, the mother of seven-year-old Ayla and five-year-old Ashton, was a teacher for ten years. Asked what she would most like people to remember about her, she said, “Most people say I’m nice, caring and kind. I do care a lot about others and how they feel. I want people to be happy.”
After suffering from thyroid cancer, Torrey passed away on the morning of August 21, 2011, surrounded by all her family.
