Where do I begin...Trudy was a Free Spirit, as was her CB handle. I've known Trudy since 1974. We worked at the "stop-n-go" (rob). We were like Laverne & Shirley. We did karaoke before it was popular, with "Don't Go Break in My Heart" at Fudruckers hamburger joint. We cruised the night streets during the blizzard of 78' in Trudys' jeep getting doctors & nurses to the hospital. She also plowed parking lots. Trudy and I were college buddies. We got into harmless mischief all the time. We had planned to retire to Vegas on our lottery winnings. (Still waiting) Trudy and I were going to start a "chicken ranch" in Alaska for the pipeline workers. She always could be found at Dunkin Donuts late at night for our CB coffee breaks with Doy, Earnie and the gang. Trudy was a foster Mom to lots of kids ad well as her own. She had an Associates Degree and worked for a doctor for awhile. Trudy was full of live and up for an adventure. Even when she got sick, she faced it on her terms. Trudy loved animals especially dogs. More than anything, Trudy loved her family! She was maid of honor at my wedding. (All of us in dresses). She was Santa's helper, we would wrap gifts until the wee hours if the morning. Trudy loved to go to the "country" clubs to hear Donnie Bowser and the StoneHearts sing "Statue of a Fool". She was a Great baby sitter and loved it very much. Trudy saved my life once when we worked the convenience store. I was working 3rd shift and we were talking in the phone. We had a pre set code word for robbery. In came a masked man with a gun. He said get off the phone. I used the code word and hung up. Trudy knew to call the police. They arrived. We were always getting robbed because of the location. I quit after facing a gun the 4th time. But Trudy and I remained BFFs. Life happened, we drifted apart, But whenever we would get together or phone, it was like time stood still and we never missed a beat. The last time I saw Trudy she was getting ready for a doctor visit. When I left we hugged. I will cherish that moment forever. I offer my sincerest sympathy to the family, Scott, Dawn, Randy, Debbie, Amber, and all the rest. Keep Trudys' memory alive in your hearts and remember the good times. I will miss her terribly. Free Spirit is 10-7. Chris

Thank you Chris, you were a GOOD friend to mom! And yes, she had stories to tell about the escapades that the two of you would get involved in! LOL! 🤐 Debbie
