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.
