Friends and family are mourning the loss of Tricia Collins-Levi, a local businesswoman and schools booster who died suddenly on Friday.

Collins-Levi managed The Glass Man, the glass products store she co-founded with her husband, Haim, in 1995. She was a mother of three sons who was active in local organizations as well, serving most recently as vice president of the West Alameda Business Association and as a member of the Alameda Education Foundation’s Board of Directors. She had also served on the city’s film commission.

A celebration of Collins-Levi’s life will take place at 5 p.m. Tuesday, October 6 at The Glass Man, 636 Eagle Avenue. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking folks to consider making a donation to the Tricia Collins-Levi Memorial Scholarship Fund c/o the Alameda Education Foundation, 500 Pacific Avenue, Alameda, Calif. 94501.

    I never had the pleasure of meeting Trisha, but, I spoke with her several times. I work for Robert Cullmann at eon Technolgies. My heart goes out to the family and friends of Trisha's. I lost my husband a year ago, and it still hurts, however, I take it day by day.

    Always remember that Trisha will always be in your heart. You will always have fond memories of things you did together.

    Please accept my condolences to the family.

    I knew Tricia years ago when we were both part of the parent volunteer community at Paden Elementary School. Tricia was a vibrant, committed parent, with a great sense of humor and a strong intellect. Years later, I always enjoyed reading her thoughtful letters to the editor and knew the AEF program was better for her involvement. My heart goes out to her family, especially her sons. Please accept my condolances during this most difficult time.
