Pearl “Trilby” Burroughs

Our remarkable Trilby reached the end of her journey on Jan 30th in her 101st year. Born Pearl Trilby Sundin on Jericho Beach in Vancouver’s early days, Trilby’s long life was blessed with excellent health, many good times with family & friends and two exceptional husbands. Loved ones previously gone include both her “darling” men Clyde Nicol and Bill Burroughs, and beloved son Bob Nicol (Carol). Among those celebrating Trilby’s vibrant spirit are her son & daughter-in law: David & Diane Nicol, stepson Bill Burroughs Jr. (Betty), grandchildren Sue & Jane, Cameron & Cara and their families, and all her great grandchildren.

At her core, Trilby was a free spirit and would not want her friends & loved ones feeling sad, so we have decided not to have a service. If you must buy flowers, please choose a nice bright bouquet for yourself and think of Trilby as you enjoy it – she would like that.

And to you Trilby, we raise our glasses: “Here’s to Life Ain’t it Grand…”

A very Grand Life indeed.
