A long time resident of Washington Terrace, she loved her home and worked hard to raise her family there. Trudy was employed by and retired from Hill Air Force Base.
Trudy loved the outdoors and was right at home in the sunshine. She loved to golf and had a routine to stop at the golf course with Gene on the way home from work for a quick nine.
