San Luis Obispo, California - True Beauty is not just skin deep. True beauty comes from deep inside, And radiates to all who are fortunate enough, To be absorbed by it's light.
It is a beauty that is born from universal, unconditional love and acceptance. A beauty which transforms each of us that is exposed to that beauty, Into a more loving and compassionate individual. Trudi is loved by so many, because she loved so many.
Trudi Dianne Travis was born July 1945, in San Diego, CA, to Ormal and Ruth Runyon, while Ormal was serving in the South Pacific during WWII. After the war, Ormal, Ruth and Trudi returned to their hometown of Visalia, CA, where Ormal and Ruth established their business, Clark's Plumbing and Sheet Metal. Trudi attended Visalia City Elementary Schools and later Mt Whitney High School and the College of the Sequoias. At the College of the Sequoias, she met her future husband, Bill Travis. They were married November 27, 1964. A marriage that has lasted from then until today, and forever.
Trudi and Bill raised two very special children. A son, Garrett Sherman Travis, now deceased. Garrett's son, Conner resides with his mother, Jackie Travis, in Baytown, Texas. Their daughter, Sara Travis Stone, works and lives in Mill Valley along with her beautiful daughter, Skylar Travis Stone.
Trudi lived in the communities of Tulare, Visalia and San Luis Obispo. During that time, Trudi served many philanthropic organizations, including California Women for Agriculture, Las Madrinas Society and Central Coast Funds for Children.
On February 2nd, Trudi's physical presence suddenly departed this planet, but her beauty will grace our lives throughout eternity.
A celebration of life will be scheduled at a later date. Donations may be sent to Woods Animal Shelter and Transitions Mental Health of San Luis Obispo.
