RINGER, Gertrude “Trudy” Aurelia
We mourn the passing of Trudy Ringer, resident of Wedgewood for 5 years and known to many as a fun-loving character and a good friend.
She never missed an event in the Wedgewood, especially loving an opportunity to dance when she was able, and was frequently at Happy Hour although her tipple was always Ginger Ale!
She loved playing cards with her friends, going to the German Club for coffee and cake on a Sunday afternoon, watching the Liedertafel concerts, both eating out and in the Wedgewood Dining Room and above all being with people.
She was often seen on her scooter in the corridors on her way to friend’s and family’s apartments or buzzing across the road to the ‘Independent’.
She leaves behind eleven direct family members in Canada, countless family in Austria, and an enormous treasury of wonderful memories with family and friends.
There will be a private funeral for family only on October 9, 2020 and a Celebration of Life at a later date when not restricted by Covid-19. Memorial donations may be made to the Kelowna Liedertafel Society – Contact email: firstname.lastname@example.org or Beverly Newell (Treasurer): 250 979-1391; or to the Heart & Stroke Foundation www.heartandstroke.ca.
If you wish to send a condolence, post photos, or share a memory please scroll down the page to the area called “Condolences”.
THIS SERVICE WILL BE LIVE STREAMED / BROADCAST ON FRIDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2020 AT 4:00 PM
