    Trudy, you are now looking down on all of us with perfect vision.

    You always made my daughter and I feel so welcome when we visited. Natalie will always have many fond memories of you. She loved you very much and was so grateful that you suggested we get her a Shih Tzu too. I will miss our many conversations and seeing you in the yard working very hard, not to mention all of the beautiful seasonal decorations you put out religiously.
    Whenever we pass your house it will never be the same.
    Rest in Peace Trudy. We Love You.

    I don’t know where to begin Nonny was one of the kindest, caring, most loving neighbors anyone could ask for. She always looked out for our kid’s and had lots of really good advice for the old and the young. I loved watching her plant her flowers every spring, they were always so beautiful. When the grass cutting season arrived Nonny had the lushest green lawn in the neighborhood and she was so proud of it! And the leaves, oh the leaves!! When the snow came falling down she was the first one out blowing the driveway her energy level amazed me! I remember saying to her one day “when I grow up I want to be just like her… a strong Irish woman.’ Thank you Nonny for being the best, I love and miss you soo much and you will never be forgotten. You were the best neighbor anyone could ever ask for. All our love.

    Bernadette Durkin and family.

    With our sincere sympathy and friendship,
    Denny and Patty

    Trudy has been à mainstay in our neighborhood for decades, and she will be greatly missed. She always had a smile and an encouraging word for everyone, and she always remembered to ask about neighbors’ kids, grandkids, and parents! I absolutely loved the time I was able to spend with her over the years, as she shared pictures and stories of her family, and provided me with lots of wisdom concerning my family! Her independence and positive attitude were inspiring to all of us. May your many fond memories of time spent with her, and the assurance we have that she is in heaven, help you through your grief. Love to all of you.
    Cindy Tanner Goldbach, member of the neighborhood since 1960!
