Although Trudy is related to me through the Rodger's, I first got to know her in Food Lion. She was so likeable and friendly. I'm proud to call her relative. I just learned today that she passed on. Thank the Good Lord for the memories. He will see you through this. Judy Shell

Our Trudy, We was Neighbors and Partners in Crime, Even though there was around 40 yrs age difference. We would go on walks, go to the tanning bed together, Laugh listen to music and watch General Hospital together. She Loved my Daughter as her own Family. When my Mother Passed Away Trudy came to check on me everyday. I will forever miss her and her smile. Thoughts and Prayers are sent.

Trudy was one of my favorite people - ever. So bubbly, positive, enthusiastic, cheerful and fun to be with. I worked with her at Sancar when I was a teenager and always was glad to see her. She came to my wedding 43 years ago. I wished I could have seen her again, but I didn't know how to reach her. I am glad there is a picture of her to print. I will miss her small stature and big personality.

Trudy was a beam of light; just a absolute pleasure to be around.

She always had a story to share, her home was full of smiles, laughter, family and friends.

She will be missed

Every memory I have of Trudy is a happy one. She was full of energy, had a wonderful bright smile and laugh. I wish I knew what to say in this time of loss. I do know she loved her son Nelson and daughter in law Susie very very much. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
