TRIMBLE, Constance Winifred (Babs) Constance Winifred Trimble passed away peacefully on October 21, 2014 at the age of 88 in Sidney, BC.


Babs will be lovingly remembered by her children Susan (Jim) Banister, Wendy (David) Patton, Tom (Gloria) Trimble, grandchildren Jay (Ann) Banister, Avery and Mark Trimble, Kaitlyn and Alana Patton and great granddaughter, Elle Banister.


Babs was predeceased by her husband Tom, and her grandson Matthew Banister; siblings Roger, Jack and Terry.


Babs met Tom during World War II when he was serving in England as an RCAF fighter pilot. They fell in love and got married and she moved to Canada as a British war bride. They settled in Edmonton and raised three children. Babs had a passion for flower gardening, and collecting antiques. She had great fashion style and was always impeccably dressed. She also enjoyed swimming, walking and entertaining family and friends. Perhaps her greatest passion was her little dogs.


In 1983, Babs and Tom moved to Victoria to pursue their interests and have spent the past 31 years in their lovely home overlooking the ocean.
