Trudy spent most of her years as a homemaker, devoted mother and grandmother, always caring for babies and children – family or otherwise. She dearly loved her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and was so proud of them all. For many years, she took thousands of pictures of her family and documented holidays, special occasions and everyday life.

She was also a true bargain shopper and loved looking for good deals. She shopped all year to find just the right gifts for the entire family at Christmas and was an extremely generous woman. Through the years, her generosity and frugality helped supply many of her family, friends, church family and even neighbors with clothing and whatever they needed for their small children.

A Celebration of Life will be held in the spring, details to be announced at a later time.
