It was a cool and rainy day when time stood still for Cerise. At the young age of 38, she unexpectedly began her final journey.
Cerise was born to Don and Teri Trupp, on April 14, 1984, in Edmonton, Alberta at the Royal Alexander Hospital. Shortly after her birth, they moved their family to Victoria, BC. At the age of 6, they packed up and moved to Drayton Valley, Alberta to be with her Dad’s family. In 2002, Cerise graduated Grade 12 from Frank Maddock High School. She furthered her education at Mount Royal University in Calgary (2002 – 2004), finishing with a GPA of 3.7. She then transferred to the University of Calgary, enrolling in Religious Studies.
Eventually Cerise, Don and Teri, relocated to Nelson, BC. After the sudden passing of her father in 2021, Cerise and Teri began their new life, living and working together. Cerise loved her customers and especially loved working with the staff at Wait’s Diner. Mary and Jim meant the world to Cerise. The “Yellow” spirit will always be at Wait’s.
Cerise was extremely intelligent, kind and so enthusiastic. For all who knew and loved her, she will forever be remembered for her bubbly, larger than life personality. Her radiant smile and lust for life were simply infectious! She was affectionately called Ce Ce by many family members.
Cerise adored her father and “All that is Art” and clearly inherited his many talents. Her floral arrangements were beyond beautiful; they were truly the “Bees Knees”. Cerise was a bit of a “Cat Whisperer” and had a special love and devotion to her new little kitten, “Milkshake”.
Cerise was pre-deceased by her Dad, Don Trupp, her brother Jon-Selby, her Nonno and Nonna Serafino and Raffaela Arcovio, Grandparents Sandy and Eunice Trupp, her Aunts Sharon MacDonald and Sandra Cameron.
Cerise will be deeply missed by her Mom, Teri Trupp (Arcovio) of Nelson BC, her Aunt Heather Rennison (Brian), Terrance MacDonald of Drayton Valley AB, her Sister-in-law Kasandra Arcovio (Beecroft) of London England, Her Uncles Leonard Arcovio (Laura Cillis), John Arcovio (Janet Stewart), Joe Arcovio and Mario Arcovio, all of Nelson BC.
