Trudy Sawatzky, age 92 years passed away peacefully on Tuesday, December 19, 2017 in Pinewood Court. Trudy was born in Prince Albert, Sask. On June 19, 1925 to John and Inga Brow. She had two brothers Jackie and Jim. In 1944, she married Bert Walton and moved to Campbellville, Ont., and had welcomed three daughters; Carole, Bette and Lynda. In 1960 Trudy moved to Port Arthur with the girls and took a teaching job with the Port Arthur School Board (Lakehead P.S.B.).

After Jim passed, Trudy retired to Glacier Ridge, where she met Don Sawatzky. After a short time, having similar interests they married with both families in attendance. They enjoyed many cruises and family dinners. When Don passed, Trudy moved to Hilldale Retirement Living and then Pinewood Court Retirement Home.
