I will always remember Trudi's gentle spirit and her deep love for Jesus and family. She was a special friend who held Duane's and my respect and love. My heart goes out to Jon, the boys, and other loves, for their heavy loss. May your pain be tempered by the comfort of knowing that her pain and suffering is now over. May the warmth of the many memories of her love surround you and keep you strong.

As a kid, I remember spending time with both Trudy & Jon with my parents, Bill & Hazel Knight. Truly great people. My thoughts are with you and your family Jon. Dad asked me to also send his condolences as they were hoping to make it down, but are unable to.

If we all learned but one lesson from Trudy Critchfield let it be the reward we receive in choosing the Lord Jesus Christ as our very own Lord and savior. Our time here is but of a blink of an eye, But the Gift of eternal life is ours for ever and is more beautiful than anything we could come up with on own.. The Lord Jesus is kind , patent, and will meet you where your . Ask and yee shall recive , Seek and yee shall find, Knock and the door will be opened for you . Trudy had shared these simple steps with many. She now sores on the wings of eagles, she runs but does not become week. She is in her mansion in heaven made just for her, and she walks on streets paved of gold so pure you can see through it.Trudy is a powerful prayer warrior. Let us not shed tears of sadness because her here on earth is done, But let us shed tears of joy for her eternal life has just begun free of any pain or suffering. Thank you Trudy in Jesus name Amen

Trudy will surely be missed. We all love that lady so much! I know she's in the arms of Jesus now and finally at peace and rest. No more physical struggles. I'm so happy for her, and yet so sad for her family. I love you all, and am here if you need anything. Please call if there's anything I can do. I keep hearing Jesus telling Trudy "Well done, my good and faithful servant." Trudy was such an awesome human being. Always there for whoever needed her, opening her home to anyone in need, and always there with a listening ear. One could always count on her to be truthful and blunt when she felt it necessary. I always admired those things about her. She made a difference in many lives. God Bless you all, and may He give you His peace.

Jon, I'm so sorry for your loss. I'll alway treasure the New Years Eve memories I have of years ago in Stoughton at Wally and Laurie's. Trudy's smile and laugh were infectious. She could light up a dark room with her big smile and that Frank laugh. I know the pain of losing someone, and the void that their passing leaves in your heart. But I also know that through the love and faith you have in God, the two of you will one day be reunited again! Until that day, may God bless you and hold you in the palm of his hand. Take comfort in all that the two of you shared together. It was awesome!! Kathy (Clark) Blackmer
