McCartney, Gertrude "Trudy"



February 10th, 1927 – January 4th, 2024

Gertrude Clara McCartney at the age of 96 years, went home to Jesus peacefully on Thursday, January 4th, 2024. “Trudy” passed on with her loved ones by her side at the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.  

She was predeceased by her husband, Earle McCartney; parents, Mike and Catherine Thul; brothers: Gene, Ray, and Gordon; sisters-in-law, Maxine and Beatrice; special cousin, Agnes Spasoff and her husband Gil; and stepson, Greg McCartney. Trudy will be lovingly remembered by her son, Brent (Lisa) and their two sons Chad and Tyler; and stepsons, Wayne (Sue) McCartney and Garth McCartney.

Trudy was born in Tuxford, SK and raised on the farm in Marquis, SK where she attended grade school. Characterized by determination and a sense of independence, Trudy went on to attend business college in Moose Jaw. This led to a career with the Canadian Government Elevators which proudly lasted 33 years and a pension plan that continued “just a speck” longer. Earle and Trudy were married in 1959 and their son Brent was born in 1964. They built the service station north of Moose Jaw where they lived until moving to their home on Laurier Street in 1986.

Family functions always seemed to draw out the crib board which she enjoyed so much with her brothers, many nieces and nephews, or anyone else willing to risk a quarter or two. When her grandchildren were able to hold six cards in their hands, she ensured that they learned the game and learned it well! She cherished the many friendships over the years through work, the neighbourhood in Moose Jaw, her time at Park Avenue, and her newest friends at West Park. Trudy had a curious mind, big heart, and a precious gift that made you feel special when you were with her. You were all her favourite.    

A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, January 20th, 2024 at 1:00 p.m. in Moose Jaw Funeral Home. Reverend Felipe Faustino will officiate and interment will take place at a later date in Rosedale Cemetery. Those not able to attend may view the service virtually by going to Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. Cara Ashworth Funeral Director 306-693-4550
