Trudy was one-of-a-kind, with a heart of gold, and left a lasting impression on every person she encountered. She would light up a room with her warm smile and was a caregiver to anyone in need, even to complete strangers. Her creativity was endless and mostly self-taught. She enjoyed intricate handcrafts such as macramé, crocheting, knitting, sewing, and tatting. Trudy could also create a masterpiece with a paintbrush. She was passionate about her crafts and generous creating gifts for others. Her heart was often in the kitchen as she immensely enjoyed southern cooking, sweet treats, or anything not out of a box (because that was “cheating”). Trudy loved her flowers and plants. With her vast knowledge, she could identify almost any foliage immediately. She loved to talk, whether it was about her beautiful family, her Izzy, or the friends she adored. She loved cruising in her convertible with the top down and her “girl” Izzy by her side. Sister Trudy was dedicated to her faith and to her Savior Jesus Christ. She attended Faith Church Pentecostals of Del Rio, where she was involved in leadership. She loved to be involved in ministering to others. She also enjoyed using her vocal ability and talent on the piano to worship God.
