TRAWICK, Winifred Hamlin

January 24, 1915 – January 1, 2013

Winifred Trawick (nee Hill) of Calgary, AB, passed away peacefully on New Year’s Day at the age of 97 years.

Winifred was a kind spirit, fiercely independent, with a sharp wit and intelligence. She enjoyed the arts and will be remembered fondly for her involvement with the many programs the Kirby Centre had to offer. Her church activities, passion for the Saskatchewan Roughriders, and playing a mean hand at bridge kept her young. She travelled the world well into her 80s and had a love for languages.

Winifred is survived by her daughters-in-law, June, Beth, and Marg (former); along with grandchildren, Bryan (Danielle), Geoffrey (Monique), Randy, Heather, and Richard (Lyndsay). She was delighted to have met her great-grandchildren, Alice and Teddy, before she passed. She was predeceased by her beloved husband Lyle; sons, Ian and Aleck; as well as her siblings, Isabel, Dorothy, and Alice.

A Memorial Service will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Sunday, January 6, 2013 at 2:30 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes may be made directly to the charity of the donor’s choice.

    Aunt Winifred will always be remembered for the Christmas & New Year’s dinners; her pride in Ian’s and Aleck’s accomplishments and families; and being Mom’s travelling buddy. Despite her age, she was not afraid of technology such as Skype to keep connected. We will all miss her dearly!

  3. Shirley Hill per Jean Larmour :

    Mother (Jean Larmour) has fallen recently and is unwell, so she cannot personally send a message. She does send her thoughts and condolences, though. She has spoken many, many times over the years of the Andersons/Reeds/Trawicks/Larmours shenanigans at the Bridge table and on holidays. She remembers Win with affection and sends sympathy to the family.

  4. Wyn (and Lyle) were good friends to my folks and I have many memories of bridge games and recounting of Roughrider games. I took my mom (Betty) to Wyn’s for tea just months before mom passed away and really enjoyed Wyn’s stories and wit. She had a long and happy life and I am pleased to have known her. I am sorry for your loss.

    Wyn and Lyle were good friends of Mom and Dad (Bill and Betty Reed, originally from Regina). Many bridge games, holidays, and shared suppers enhanced the bond that they, the Anderson’s and the Larmour’s had. Mom and Dad always talked about how feisty and intelligent Wyn was, and I think that both she and Lyle helped Mom and Dad learn that individuality and personal growth didn’t have to fit into the norms of society in order to be successful and happy.
    On behalf of our family, we send our condolences, and our appreciation for their friendship.
    Arlene, Gail, Alan and Debbie Reed
