Trudy loved the country life and her farm in Hayfield Township. She enjoyed feeding and watching birds on the back deck and could recite the names of each of her cows. She also loved music and was a huge fan of Elvis and Tom Jones and would fondly tell the story of when she served pizza to Elvis in Germany. She was proud of her German roots and maintained close ties with her family and friends there.
Trudy has worked at various places in the Meadville area but is best remembered for working at the former Kafferlin Bar and Grill where she was well known for the home made soups that she made. She was a member of the Meadville Order of the Eastern Star and through her social memberships at the Meadville VFW, the Meadville American Legion, the Vernon Central Hose Company and the Vernon Volunteers she enjoyed her many friends and activities.
