Trudy was immensely proud of her 14 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. She was looking forward to the birth of twin great grandchildren in June. Trudy spent her career working in the Addiction field finishing as Director of The Brant Assessment and Referral Center. She retired at 55 and she and Rod enjoyed their time as snowbirds travelling to Texas in their motor home for 12 years. Her passion of making homemade cards and special blankets was born during retirement.
