Obituary: Snyder, Gertrud ‘Trudy’

Trudy passed away peacefully with family by her side at the Meaford Long Term Care Centre on Saturday, January 6, 2024, in her 94th year.

Born in Marsden, Saskatchewan, on September 24, 1930, Trudy was a daughter of the late Max Ludwig and Dora (nee Moller) Witt.

Trudy left Marsden and relocated to Winnipeg, Manitoba, to study nursing. Upon marriage she moved to Ontario where she and Harry farmed and Trudy pursued her nursing career and raising their family.

Trudy later embarked on a very successful career in real estate and was a keen volunteer in community activities, including the local fall fairs, Kinettes, and being a scout leader. She loved dancing!
