We got to know Trudy while she was at Amica in Dundas. We enjoyed Trudy’s company very much especially when playing bid euchre. She was always up for a game and the last to want to go home. She was very proud of her large family. We send our condolences to all the family
We didn’t meet Trudy, but our deepest condolences go out Bryan, Jill, Brooke and the rest of the family. I’m quite certain, she had to have been a very wonderful woman. Our thoughts are with you all.
