We are very sad to announce the passing of our dear mother, Gertrude (Trudy) Bernice Schlorff, on the morning of January 23, 2020, at approximately 9:30 a.m., surrounded by her family. Although we are sad, we are comforted knowing we don't have to watch her struggle anymore. She fought hard to stay with us, but her body couldn't take one more day. She passed knowing she was with her family and she was at peace.
Trudy is survived by her husband Melvin Schlorff, her sons, Fred Schlorff (Roxanne) and Raymond Schlorff, daughter Sandra Dauphinais (Doug) and families, not to mention the wonderful foster children she helped over the years. She is also survived by her sisters, Margaret Ehn, Barbara Scott (Bill), and brother George Stevens (Marvee), and their families.
She was predeceased by her parents, Sydney and Bernice Stevens, one sister Zella Cameron and her husband Don Cameron in 2019, one son in infancy, along with numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
A viewing will be held on Friday, January 31, 2020, at 7:00 p.m., at Desjardins Funeral Home, 357 DesMeurons Street, Winnipeg, MB for those who wish to attend.

  • In loving memory of Trudy and Mel Schlorff for having met them when they lived in Klamath Falls, Oregon as a young couple just starting their family. Trudy was a great cook and invited my husband and I across the street to a Canadian Thanksgiving with all the trimmings. Once she decided to cook a bear roast, and the smell of that unfamiliar food filled the neighborhood. It was not my favorite meal, but her Yorkshire Pudding was wonderful. Rest in peace, sweet friend, you brought fun and joy into my life. My condolences to the entire family for your loss with wishes for happy memories of such a wonderful mom, grandmother, and friend. - Posted by: Susan Davis (Friend) on: Jan 28, 2020
