Trudy Guimond passed away peacefully on Saturday, April 7, 2012 with family by her side.
She was predeceased by her husband, Herman Guimond.
Trudy was born Aug. 30, 1925 in Zeist, Holland.
She met her husband, Herman, during World War II in Holland and immigrated to Canada in 1946. They settled in Fort Frances, Ont. to raise their five children, Gerry (Jacklynne), Dennis (Cindy), Linda (Ken), Charmaine (Glen), and Cherie (Kim).
Trudy, or “Oma,” was a loving grandmother to Tracy Cain, Janet Holden, Clayton Cain, Amanda Guimond, Whitney Guimond, Shawnee Guimond-Larocque, Bobbi Morris, Shane Guimond, Dallas Guimond, Candice Guimond, Dakota Scott, and Tosha Mallette.
Oma also has 21 great-grandchildren.
Locally, Trudy is survived by her sister-in-law, Mabel Guimond, and a close family friend, Julia McDermid. She also is survived by family in Canada and Holland.
Trudy was a passionate person and loved to laugh. She was an active member in the church and choir, she loved animals, and had a gifted life as a tailor and enjoyed her many years at Betty’s.
Trudy especially loved helping people and was extremely proud to be Canadian. Her passion for justice could well be deemed fearless and forthright.
To Trudy, her family meant everything and her grandchildren’s visits were welcomed at any time. Trudy will be truly missed by her entire family.
