We have heavy hearts knowing our time with Trudy has come to an end, although far too soon. We have lost a beautiful person whom put up a courageous fight. She had a warm radiant smile, contagious laugh and left an impression on every person she came into contact with.
Trudy was born an “Okanagan Peach”, but grew up in Williams Lake. She moved to Merritt after being swept off her feet by Derek in 2005.
She is survived by her husband Derek along with her children Griffin Lawrence and Kayle Mae and step-children Orden and Devon, her parents Bucky (Gayle) and Colleen. Brothers Michael Bro (Jan), James (Alice) and Shane. She also leaves grandparents Hank Purjue and Mae Labucan along with numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. Predeceased by Grandmother Flora Mae Purjue and Grandfather Wilson (Shaggy) Labucan.
“Thanks Trud for showing everyone what selfless love is”
