Trisha was described as “bubbly, energetic and enthusiastic” by her family, Wales Online reports.
Sister Tammy Lou paid an emotional tribute following her death, writing: “Regardless of how many times you met her, she left a lasting impression.
“She was a bubbly, energetic, enthusiastic person and had a loving personality.
“She was loved very much by all and was a very determined and hard worker.
“She would always be there to help in any way she could.”
‘LOVED BY ALL’
Trisha worked at Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor and later moved to the trauma and orthopaedics wards at New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton.
Tammy Lou said that Trisha would go “above and beyond” to help others in their hour of need, adding: “She was and always will be our hero.
“A hero not only to her family but to the NHS. The gaping hole she has left in our hearts, minds and in lives will never be filled.
“She often told us with tear-filled eyes that she held the hands of these who unfortunately succumbed to the Covid virus and was often the last person they saw.”
According to Wales Online, Trisha had been set to marry her hubby Paul in New York following the lifting of travel restrictions.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to pay for funeral costs and has since raised more than £1,500.
