Wendy Hall Trigg April 28, 1940 – May 7, 2022
Our community lost a loving and kind person on Saturday, May 7, 2022, when Wendy Diane Hall Trigg died at home surrounded by family. Born in Plainfield, New Jersey, her family moved to Denver in 1946. Wendy was a long-time pillar of the Denver community, having attended Graland Country Day School and East High School. She then attended and graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder, where she was an active member of the Delta Gamma Sorority having served as rush chairman and as the chapter’s representative to the Interfraternity Council. At CU, she met her life-long love John “Jack” Trigg, and they married December 17, 1961. She supported Jack by working at the Mountain Bell Telephone Company while he attended the University of Denver Law School.
Wendy’s pride, joy and primary focus was raising and caring for her 3 children and then her eight grandchildren. She was a loving and caring mother and grandmother. Involvement in the community was also very important and Wendy was an active member for many years of the Junior League of Denver, including serving as first vice-president of the organization. In addition, she worked on many of the League’s community projects including the Magic Bus Book Mobile and was on the committee for the first Junior League of Denver cookbook, Colorado Cache. Wendy was also an active member of the Tuesday Morning Class and served that organization as an officer and later became an honorary member. She loved classical music, art, and reading history. She was one of the original members of the Faux Pas support organization of the Denver Art Museum. Wendy loved her friends and family, and she was a gracious hostess frequently opening her home to all. She had a wonderful ability to help everyone feel welcome and comfortable at any event. Wendy and her husband traveled worldwide, making friends wherever they went, and Wendy left a lasting impact on the lives of many. She is survived by her husband of 60 years, Jack Trigg, and their three children, Robert (Christine) Trigg, Nancy Seavall, and David (Pamela) Trigg. She was proud of her eight grandchildren: Jordan Trigg (25), Jennifer Trigg (25), Katie Trigg (22), Nicole Seavall (22), Jack Seavall (20), Ashley Seavall (14), Jonathan Trigg (18) and Jacob Trigg (16). She was preceded in death by her parents, Jacob Newton Hall and Adele Hall Bryant.
