Turid (Trudy) Bauck


We regret to inform of the passing of Turid Bauck on Sept 21, 2014 at the age of 90.

Trudy was born in Norway , and grew up in Trondheim where she met her husband Finn. Married in 1953, they immigrated to Canada that same year. Originally residing in Greater Vancouver, they moved to Cherryville in 1975 as owner/operators of Franks General store. Finn passed in 1978, and Trudy remained the sole operator until she retired to Vernon in 1987.

An active retiree, Trudy volunteered at the Georgette shop for over 25 years and she also assisted with raising her grandchildren. They were always excited as every Friday was “Grandma Day!” Trudy baked cookies and made her famous Norwegian waffles, and took the kids to swimming lessons, preschool and soccer. And on those all too frequent times when she took them on the wrong bus, she would claim that she was taking them on a sightseeing tour!

More than anything else, she was known for her kind and gentle nature, and she always greeted everyone with a smile. She will truly be missed.

She leaves behind children Ellen (Terry) Meyer, Hans (Neena) Bauck and Chris (Nikki) Scabar and grandchildren Matthew (Lee Anne) Jones, Lindsay Jones, and Glenn Thompson. She also leaves great-grandchildren Waylon, Wyatt, Wesley, Chloe- Rose and Bradley, brother Tor (Aashild ) of Trondhiem and several nieces and nephews all in Norway, and some very special friends Delma, Laura, Terri and Alma all of Vernon.    

There will be a celebration of her life on Oct 11, 2014 at 1205 -29th Ave from 1:00-4:00 pm. Please drop in and share your memories of Trudy with those who loved her. We encourage you to write them down so we can save and share them with one another later on.
