Trudy lived an amazing life. I had the opportunity to hear her incredible stories over dinner one night in Washington, DC. It was her 80th birthday and I felt like I was listening to the history channel. Her wisdom and spirit will persevere in the hearts of those that had the opportunity to know her.

I first met Trudy in 1990 when I purchased a holiday home backing onto her home , she called to introduce herself and when leaving reminded me to always wear sunscreen and a hat , I replied “you sound just like my Mum “ forever after that she became my “Florida Mum” My late husband and I loved her very much , a lovely lady who will be missed so so much . My love and thoughts are with you Nora and Mark x
