Tresa will be remembered and missed by her husband Shawn Ohman of Frazee,  her children: Michael Hays of Detroit Lakes, Reagan Gerving of Frazee, Kaysee Gerving of Grand Forks, ND, Charles Gerving of Detroit Lakes, Angel Gerving of Detroit Lakes, Elijah Ohman, Pete Ohman and Lilah Ohman all of Frazee and soon to be granddaughter.
