Domestic Violence Advocate Loses Her Life to Domestic Violence!

Domestic Abuse Advocates across the State of Wisconsin mourn the loss of one of their own.

Patricia "Trissa" Waschbisch 45, a dedicated Advocate at Rainbow House in Marinette, WI courageously helped many victims of domestic abuse get to safety. Tragically, Trissa herself was murdered by her boyfriend the evening of Sunday, April 28, 2013.

As an Advocate myself, Trissa's loss to domestic violence is so surreal.
It gives stark clarity to phrases many advocates use: Domestic Violence does not care about your race, religion or age. Domestic Violence does not care about how much money you make or Degrees you hold. Domestic Violence does not care about who you are, what you do, where you live and can impact any one at any time.

Trissa's warm smile and presence will be deeply missed by her beloved family and the Advocates she worked along side in the daily fight against domestic violence. 

What I know about Advocates is that they share a deepened strength and resolve. Trissa did not die in vain. Her death I am sure will unify and fuel the spirits and souls of Advocates alike.
