Obituary of Tricia L. Sledge

Tricia L. Sledge Rochester, NY Tricia L. Sledge, 51, transitioned unexpectedly from this life to eternal life on Sunday (July 4, 2021) in Dayton, OH. She was born May 28, 1970 to the late George Sledge, Sr. and Barbara Sledge, both of Allegany. Tricia graduated from Allegany Central School. There she participated in extra curricular activities including 3 years of track, gymnastics, and as an Allegany Blue Devil cheerleader. She also participated in the Incognito Color Guard for 4 years. While in high school she attended BOCES where she learned culinary arts. After graduation she relocated to Rochester. There, she became a youth coach for St. Monica’s School (NCYO) and St. Margaret Mary School community basketball teams. Later she became a youth coach for the Irondequoit Vikings cheerleading team. It was also in Rochester that she re-dedicated her life back to the Lord under the care of Pastor Ruben Hans, Higher Ground (C.O.G.O.P.). Tricia worked as a cafeteria aide and as an assistant teacher’s aide at the Irondequoit Brookview Elementary School. She was also employed by the Mary Cariola Children Center in Rochester and respite. She loved working with children with special needs. She also became a foster parent. In her spare time, she was a caregiver to the senior community. She later adopted a brother and sister and also met the love of her life, Timothy Montroy with whom she had two daughters. Anyone who knew her could tell that she enjoyed being a Mom. She enjoyed being with her family and friends, going to sports events, the movies, eating out, camping, playing cards (especially Spades), and going to church. She had a sense of humor, a very large laugh, and along with that a bright smile that made her a pleasure to be around.
