It is with great sadness that the family of Trudy Duncan announces her passing on June 26, 2013 at the RUH Oncology Unit.

Trudy loved and took great pride in her flower garden. She enjoyed camping trips with the kids when they were little, travels to B.C. with Bob and Louise. One of her favorite travel destinations was Hawaii. Her and dad made 3 trips all with family when they were in their 70's.
Above all, Trudy cherished her family. She was a loving wife of 56 years, a great mom and an absolutely wonderful granny. She loved to bake for her family and there were always treats on hand when you came to her house. She took and sorted endless pictures into beautiful photo albums.
