Trudy Weiland

Date of Death: March 18, 2018


Trudy was born Sept 10, 1936 in Munich Germany to parents,  Hans and Augusi Weidner.  Trudy was the eldest of three.  Preceded by Hannes  and survived by Gerhadt.

As a young woman growing up in Munich Germany Trudy loved the great out doors and life in the mountains.  She was a serious mountaineer, and an accomplished downhill and cross country skier.   Her adventurous spirit was well documented with her mountaineering log books, many photos and stories.

While still in Germany, the young adventurous Trudy met Joseph Weiland.  In 1960 together they decided to embark on a new life; by way of immigrating to Canada.

December  10, 1960  Joe and Trudy where married in Hamilton Ontario.    Settling in Ancaster Ontario, their family grew,  first son,  Gordon in  1964 and then  a second son, Larry in 1965.

Loading up the car one summer in 1972 the family decided to tent camp across Canada.  They fell in love with the BC Mountains and decided to move to Balfour.   Trudy would proudly call beautiful Balfour BC her home for the next 45 years.

Her family in Canada grew to include Deborah (Gordon) and Ana (Larry).  Later to be blessed with three lovely grand babies; Emma, Elaine and Wendy.  Juergen (Tina) Stein, Trudy had become their Canadian mom.  Extended family in Germany

Trudy’s kindness, love and gentle spirit has touched all that knew her.   She will always be remembered for her most prolific lush beautiful gardens, delicious nonstop baking and her most sought after knitting projects at the local Christmas craft fairs. After courageously fighting cancer since 2006, Trudy passed away March 18, 2018 peacefully with her family by her side and the Lord holding her hands.

Special thank you for the wonderful, loving care and support to Dr. Kirsten, Dr. Malpass, Dr. Sparrow & Dr. Sheir.  All the wonderful staff at KLBR and the Kaslo Victorian Hosptial.
