Trudy was a "people" person, she never knew a stranger and loved to bring joy to those she came in contact with. She was blessed to have married the love of her life and the time they spent together at their home in the country enjoying nature, watching their hummingbirds play at their feeders, and watching the grass grow, was a treasured memory. She loved to read, play games, and work crossword puzzles. She was an excellent cook and enjoyed time spent with her children and their families and her dog and best friend, Weebles.
Funeral services were held Monday, January 13, 2014 at 10 a.m. at Wilson Funeral Home in Kahoka with Pastor Glen Yoder officiating. Burial was in the Kahoka Cemetery.
