As well as being a perfect wife, mother and grandmother (with a wicked sense of humor), Trudy was a realtor in El Dorado County from 1975 to 1995. She had previously worked in sales for Field Enterprises for 15 years in Mendocino County. Trudy had a great love for all people she met and was always interested in learning everyone's story. She will be remembered for her big heart, her kind soul, and her great one-liners. She was well loved by everyone and will be missed bunches. A memorial service will be held this Saturday November 16th at St. Stephens Lutheran Church in El Dorado Hills at 2pm. The address is 1001 Olson Lane, El Dorado Hills, California 95762.
