She graduated from Sunnyslope High School in Arizona in 1978. Trelawney was married to Mike Heppler. Of this union, two sons were born: David and James Heppler. She later married Randy Birkenkamp. The couple spent thirty years together and had eight children between the two of them. She was very supportive of her children and they all knew that she was their biggest fan. Trelawney was a hard worker. She worked as a dietary aide at Chariton Nursing and Rehab Center. She also worked as a cashier at Amaco and Coastal and as a cashier and assistant manager at Casey's. Trelawney loved to camp and fish, although she didn't like to touch worms or the fish she caught. She enjoyed football so much she could have been a coach. She enjoyed science fiction, especially Star Trek Voyager. She liked to play games on her phone and liked hard candy. She was a unique, honest, respectful and strong-willed woman with a great big heart. Trelawney put everyone else before herself. She loved time with family, especially time spent with her grandson, Carter. Trelawney made Christmas special for her family by hosting a traditional farm Christmas every year. Trelawney was preceded in death by her brother, Brian O'Leary; father, Thomas O'Leary; stepdad, Ernie Bebee; and grandparents, Lowell and Mary Dachenbach.
