A woman filled with compassion for others and a desire to help, Trudy graduated from Danbury School of Nursing and started her 40 plus year career as a nurse. From bedside care, intensive care, management, home health and education she gave her all. As a Christian she was actively involved in opportunities to show Christ to others through her involvement with youth groups and community projects, from inner city revival to rural areas and in the small important details of showing her love to friends with cards and caring. She joined the Lutheran denomination 31 years ago and has been an active member of Our Savior Lutheran Church in Johnson City, TN for the last 16 years. She helped provide lunch at the Melting Pot, several times a month. She realized food was great but loving interaction was so important and reached out to many. Also worked helping on builds with Habitat for Humanity and many community action groups. She was actively involved in the Jonesborough Senior Center where she taught and played bridge. Supported the Johnson City Symphony, the Jonesborough Repertory Theater and of course was a member of the Story Tellers Guild.
