NORTHWOOD – Eltruda "Trudy" May Warren, 72, of Northwood passed away Thursday, June 26, 2014.
The Guest Book is expired.
Trudy was born in Laconia on September 5, 1941, to Lawrence Dolloff and Ruth (Blair) Dolloff.
She graduated from Laconia High School and went on to study interior design at Mount Saint Mary's in Hooksett. Later on, she took continuing education classes in early childhood education.
Her love of children was reflected in her work as a Title I teacher at Pittsfield Elementary School. Before retirement, she also worked as a Program Director at Alternate Route For Kids at Strafford Elementary School.
Trudy's love and appreciation for her family and friends got her through to the very end. She spent much of her time with her children and grandchildren and was blessed to be a great grandmother twice. She was an amazing cook who loved to spend time working in her garden. Her tenacity for life was inspiring and her patience, kindness and wit made her loved by those who knew her. She spent her last few months living at The Meadow at Northwood where she made many new friends and enjoyed their company by playing weekly bingo and by learning to knit.
Trudy is survived by her two sisters, Madeline Connelly and Lorraine Bedard. She is also survived by her devoted son and his partner, Michael Warren and Denise Bean; her loving daughter and her husband, Kimberly Warren and Randy Little; her adoring grandchildren, James Davis and his wife, Becky Davis, Nikki Warren and Thomas Fletcher and his fiancée, Brittany Mendonca and her precious great-grandchildren, Autumn Davis and Madison Fletcher.
