Predeceased by her parents, Otto and Gertrude Junk, brother Heinz Junk all of Gronau, West Germany.  Also predeceased by husband Kornelius Engel.  Loving mother of daughter Elke Staruiala (Larry) of Kamloops, British Columbia, son Heinz Engel, also of Kamloops, daughter Gertie Hamel (Don) of Cornwall, and son Ken Engel of Cornwall.  Adored “Oma” of Krista, Jason, Nicole, Stephen, Shellie, Carey, Sheldon, Starla, and Tyler.  Great “Oma” to Samantha, Kaitlyn, Trinity, Hayes, McKinley, Gavin, Lily, Josiah, Spencer, Jensen, Jaidyn, Jace, Lila and Ella.

Trudy’s faith and belief in God were her continued strength.  She enjoyed her family very much and made many trips to visit them, both in Canada and the United States.  Her lovely baby blankets, scarves, socks and afghans and most recently dish cloths, have been admired and enjoyed by many.  One year Mom made 40 scarves and donated them to the Salvation Army.  It was not unusual for Mom to stop and chat with someone on the street, and give them money for coffee or some food.  We will miss her spunk, and sense of humour and the way she always cared about others.  We love you dear Mom and will miss you very much.  Friends will be received at McArthur Bros. & MacNeil Funeral Home & Chapel , 428 Second Street East Cornwall  (613-932-6300) on Saturday November 2, 2013 from 10 am to 12 noon followed by cremation.  A celebration of life memorial for the family will be held a later date.  As expressions of sympathy donations may be made to the Gideon’s Bible Society.  Messages of condolence may be left at
