August 26, 1936 – October 5, 2020
It is with heavy hearts that we must announce the passing of our mother and Oma.
Born in De Lemmer, Holland in 1936, she immigrated to Canada with her first husband and 2 young children in 1970.
Once settled in Canada, she parlayed her previous retail experience into an enlightening career with (Simpson) Sears Canada as the full time manager in three different departments.
With the encouragement of her second husband Henk, she switched gears to apply her skills to Real Estate, where she met many wonderful clients and sales professionals with whom she forged some great friendships.
Through Henk’s many years of involvement with the Kiwanis Sunrisers they enjoyed many functions and journeys to make many more friends. Mom also really enjoyed their years on their “Tolly”, fishing and exploring local waters with friends and family.
Predeceased by her husband Henk in 1997, she is survived by her son Corey (Joanne), daughter Wilma (Fraser) and grandchildren Derek (SiNae), Shaun (Marie), Carson, Madison and great grandchildren Atticus and Tiberius. Mom also leaves the extended families of Wilma (Vic), Ron (Jan) and June (Doug).
Trudy will be missed.
There will be no service by request.
In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made in Mom’s name to the Cancer Society.
