Mom was born September 20, 1945, daughter of Charlie and Margaret Murray. Mom attended Flee Island School in her younger years, then the family moved to Allandale District south of Edwin MB. She attended Austin Collegiate and the Mrs. Yonda Business School, and then went to work at Portage Mutual Insurance. On January 30, 1965 she married Hal Trimble. They moved to Gainsborough District in 1968, where they raised their five children, eventually moving into town in 2014. Throughout mom’s life she worked hard on the family farm milking cows and shipping cream. Mom also enjoyed raising and showing Maine Anjou cattle. She enjoyed 20+ years as a 4-H leader where she loved helping and watching her kids show cattle. Mom worked at CFB Portage for a number of years and when it closed, she opened Audrey’s Kitchen & Catering. After the restaurant closed, she worked for several years cooking at Aramark and then Douglas Campbell Lodge. Mom’s first love were her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her love for family and cooking was apparent, and her love for flowers was obvious by the abundance of gardens.
