March 1, 1913 to May 19, 2011.
Hallie Tritt, long time resident of Vanderhoof, passed away peacefully at Fraser Canyon Hospital in Hope, BC at the age of 98. She was born and raised in Blackfoot, Alberta and later attended high school in Lloydminster before moving to Edmonton where she completed her training as a Registered Nurse at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in 1936. Later that year she married Jack Tritt and in 1937 they moved to Vanderhoof and settled six miles east of town on Sackner Road where they farmed and raised their family. In later years they began to spend their winters in Hope and would return to the farm each summer. After Jack passed away in 1988, Hallie continued to return to Vanderhoof each summer to grow her vegetable garden and catch up with her family and friends. Hallie is survived by her children, Lawrence (Donna) Tritt of Vanderhoof, Anne Tritt and partner, Svend Lojstrup of Vancouver, Dorothy (Peter) Quanstrom of Hope and Marg Tritt of Burnaby, (7) grandchildren, (9) great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank Dr. S. Christie and the staff of Fraser Canyon Hospital in Hope for their care of our mother.
