Trudy Siborne

March 20, 1950 - December 8, 2015


Trudy passed away quite suddenly on Dec 8 at Bevan Lodge from complications attributed to a long, cruel battle with Alzheimers, at the very young age of 65. She was predeceased by her parents, Howard & Joyce Dalby, and leaves behind her husband Brian, sons Byron (Lisa) and Brett (Terry), two wonderful grandchildren, Samara & Brennen, and an extended family.

Trudy was born on Mar 20/50 in Ladysmith, B.C., where she was raised, schooled and graduated. In 1970, she married Brian, a banker, and thus began a 45-year journey living in places throughout the Province as well as internationally, including Grand Cayman, Singapore and Hong Kong. Abbotsford has been home for 24 years, but whenever meeting someone for the first time, she always told them she was from Ladysmith, a great Ambassador for the Town that hosts the annual Festival of Lights parade.

Trudy loved the sun, so numerous Princess cruises with Brett, lying on Waikiki or poolside in Palm Springs were her favourite activities. She will be forever remembered for her smiles and vibrant personality, which included pinching men and leaving lipstick on cheeks or foreheads. Her greatest joy though was her love for friends and family, especially being “Grans” to Samara & Brennen. She will be missed by all who knew her.

The family would like to extend our appreciation to the staff at Bevan Lodge for their professional care, compassion and kindness over the last 8 months.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Monday, Dec 21st at 2pm at The Phoenix located at 33780 King Rd. in Abbotsford.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer Society of B.C. would be greatly appreciated.
