Gertrude “Trudy” Catherine Holmberg, age 79, of St. Paul, Minnesota, went to heaven peacefully on March 19, 2020 surrounded in love.

She was preceded in death by her husband, William “Bill” F. Holmberg; daughter, Heidi Konkler; grandson, Christopher Holbrook; brothers, Richard Ireland and Frank Haessly; and sisters, Theresa Haessly and Beverly Johnson.

She was the proud mother of Lynn Holbrook, Kimberly Strand, Deborah Jensen-LaBarre, Brian Konkler, Cathy Holmberg, Susan Cadorette, Bill Holmberg Jr., and Laura Holmberg; 13 grandchildren, Scott Holbrook, Christopher Holbrook, Jessica Strand, Matthew Strand, Monica LaBarre, Joe Cadorette, Sarah Cadorette, Mark Kupfer, Mitchell Holmberg, Nicholas Holmberg, Georgia Holmberg, Kyle Quatmann, and Crystal Glover; five great-grandchildren, Caleb, Ethan, Lorelei, Ryker, and Alex; sister, Patricia Jonas; brother, Michael Haessly and their families.

To quote Bill, Jr., "Trudy's love was her family and going to the cabin with us all and Bill.” All of us children were proud to call her mom, and we have such beautiful memories. We will have a celebration of her life when the world allows us to gather to honor the beautiful life of our mother.

In lieu of flowers, donations sent to the family will be used to purchase essential care items for those at Prelude Memory Care in White Bear Lake, MN where our mother was cared for so tenderly in her final stages of dementia.

Memorials can be sent to Wulff Funeral Home, 1485 White Bear Ave., St. Paul, MN 55106 and will get forwarded to the family.

It wasn't suppose to go this fast, it wasn't suppose to go this way! You should still be here to live the life you deserve, but the crippling onset of your disease got the best of you and took you from us too soon. I will miss you Mom, your quirky ways and your strength of love for us all.
Selfish as it maybe, I still wish you where here to share new moments that are to come. But I know you are now in a better place with no pain, no confusion and misunderstanding of what was happening to the person you once were.
You are in a better place Mom and are with the others that have gone before you. Blessed are you and know I will see you again!!
Love You Always!! Debbie (Booba)
