Karen Nurse (Trotchie) passed away suddenly on Sunday, August 7, 2022. Karen was known as ‘Pusty” by those who loved her.
She was predeceased by her father, Clarence Trotchie, her Koohkoom Justine and Mooshoom Peter. Also, by many aunties and uncles, Louise Belcourt (Ed), Alex Trotchie (Mary), Irene Dimick (Lester), Norman (Bob) Trotchie, Irvin Trotchie (Josephine), Violet Livingstone (Don), Dorothy Askwith, Kay Mazer, Marg Laframboise, and Mary Cousins.

She is survived by Keyanna, who called her Gamma, her mother Phyllis Trotchie, sister Faye Maurice (Darrel Allen) and brothers Wayne (Patti), Stewart, Dennis and David (Lynn); uncles Bob (Ev), Stan (Doreen), auntie Shirley, and many cousins and friends.
Karen was a descendant of La Prayrii Rond and was a proud Michif woman. She supported Métis causes and was involved for a time with the Métis Women of Saskatchewan.
Pusty was very kindhearted and helped people whenever she could with what little she had. She was fun to be with and was always helpful and respectful.
