Trudy was a wonderful friend, worked with her for several years, friends from the moment we met. We had a lot of good times together, one was a wonderful vacation with our husbands to Disney World. Definitely a vacation to remember. Trudy faced every health problem head on with a lot of sponk. for she did not give up. She loved her wonderful family so much. Trudy will always be missed by many people, for she was always happy doing for others.
Lost a wonderful friend. Grace Ussery

Trudy was one of a kind and loved by all! I can never forget her smiling face as she made her rounds at Piedmont-Henry with her little tote of needles and supplies. Or the time she found my Mama (who had dementia) wandering the halls at the hospital and brought her back to me in the waiting room and said "look who I found"! May she rest in peace, she will be missed.
