To Mike and the McFadden family
Our sympathies on the passing of your mother, she was a very special women , willing to endure countless summer weekends with what must have seemed like every nieghbourhood kid in the pool, and yet she found the time in that chaos to talk to us, asking about our parents,our sibblings, our interests and with genuine caring. This is an increasingly rare trait, and one she was able to instill in her children. You guys were lucky to have her.

God bless her
Scott & Michelle and family

Condolence from Joyce Hill on July 12th, 2021 8:18 pm

Our deepest sympathies to the whole McFadden family. Through our dear friend Anne we were fortunate to meet Mrs McFadden and all of you.
When we were fairly new to Canada and with parents living abroad, we expected our first child. New to the unknown, your mother was there for us. Mrs McFadden was one of the first visitors after our daughter was born. Her door was wide open for us, with or without children. This has always meant a lot. We enjoyed the many laughs and her chatter about the Irish.
She will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
Joyce, Mark and family

Condolence from John Pitkin on July 15th, 2021 11:35 am

Sincere condolences to the McFadden Family on the passing of Trudy.

We grew up 2 houses south on Elizabeth Drive. Trudy was always a dear and kind friend of my mother Helen Pitkin. There were 5 of us on the street born in 1956 (Geraldine, Ann, Eddie, Tommy and I so we played with each other lots until Grade One came along. Who can forget evening games of “Farmer in the Dell” with Laing’s Toy House as home base. Trudy was one of a group of mom’s who were always there for us when needed ; sandwiches for lunch or mending a cut, scrap or whatever injury came to us. I didn’t know Trudy was an RN but that sure explains why she was the preferred mom when a patch up was needed. As per Scott Boynton, I lost count of how many times the neighbourhood kids went swimming in the McFadden pool.

Trudy’s love and kindness touched a lot of us from the neighborhood and definitely contributed to the happy childhood I fondly and regularly recall.

A life well lived with love, kindness, graciousness and integrity.

John Pitkin
