Trudy was a faithful member of St. Margaret Mary Church and MASCA who loved to attend Broadway Shows and the Opera in Pittsburgh. “Aunt Snappy Pants”, always well-dressed, loved to dine out every Friday or whenever. Trudy was very loved and respected by her children. Those who knew Trudy well, admired her meticulous cleanliness, sense of order and her strong opinion which was never held back. Someone said that she is probably putting Heaven in order right now. She will be greatly missed because she was well-loved.
