I met Trudy at the Thredbo Youth Hostel when she was holidaying in oz in 1973. My younger brother Owen (12 years old) was travelling with me. We spent a wonderful 2 weeks exploring the snowy mountains and streams whilst staying at the Geehi Hut (see photo). We loved it so much we intended to stay longer and even planted vegetables. I returned to Geehi recently with my husband and some friends and recalled our experiences of 1973 and even searched for our vegies. It is with deep regret to learn of her passing. My sincere condolences to her family. I would be interested to know more of her life.
