It broke my heart to hear of Trudys passing. I feel very blessed to have known such a wonderful person. My thoughts and prayers to all of you.

I will miss Trudy. We met at the beauty shop where I volunteer at Wesley Willows. We hit it off right away and became friends. The time passed quickly whenever we visited, always having something to talk about. She was a great gal and I was privileged to have known her.

Trudy was certainly a special person. From the time I met her while working for the City, I knew she was special and had a very warm heart. Rest in Peace Trudy, and embrace the loving arms of Jesus.

Our hearts are sad to learn of Trudy's passing but we have such good memories to cherish from our visits with her at Wesley Willows. She was such a special and intelligent person to have as a friend. We will miss her but Heaven is gaining a wonderful person. Our sympathies to all her family. We visited with her on Dec. 4th so we are still trying to grasp her being gone.

Trudy was a loving sister and aunt and will always conjure up happy thoughts, funny memories, and enduring strength for our family. She was one of a kind and a prayer warrior. We love you and miss you Trudy and know you are enjoying Heaven.

Trudy was such a compassionate friend to everyone in her life. She always lived way beyond her circumstances. Her strong faith was so clearly evident in how she lived her life. Heaven is rejoicing with her arrival. My sympathy to family who will dearly miss her.
