Gertrude Karrer Jack

Gertrude Karrer Jack, 96, affectionately known as “Trudi”, passed away peacefully on December 19, 2016 while residing at Brookdale in Poulsbo, Washington. She died of natural causes, just one month short of her 97th birthday. Surrounded by family, she transcended peacefully to her eternal resting place.

Trudi was born January 20th, 1920, in Los Angeles, California. She was the daughter of Swiss emigrants, Ulrich and Alice Karrer.

Trudi was a gracious, loving lady with a beautiful smile and wonderful sense of humor. Her good Swiss genes and love of healthy living allowed her to live a long healthy life. We feel blessed to have had so many precious years with her.

We thank all the compassionate friends and caretakers she met while living at Fairwinds Brighton Court in Lynnwood, WA and Brookdale in Poulsbo, WA. She appreciated each and every one of you and the compassion and care you extended to her and her family.

Trudi is survived by her three children: Harrison Jack (Carol) of Woodland, California, Heidi Jack of Suquamish, WA and Cindy Jack of Mill Creek, WA. Grandchildren include: Marcello Togneri (Isaree), Logan Jack (Elza) and Karston Jack. Great grandchildren include Ukayah Jack, Hunter Jack and Marissa Togneri. Nieces include Margaret Karrer and Helen Pacula, both California residents.

At her request, no funeral service will be held. A celebration of life will be held for immediate family in the Spring at which time her ashes will be buried next to her parents, Ulrich and Alice Karrer, at the Woodland Cemetery, Woodland, Ca.
