Trudy passed away on December 13th, 2010 at the age of 85, just one year and three days after her beloved husband, Joseph. The silver lining is that she went out on a high note. The past year was spent painting and enjoying time with family and friends.

Although she missed Joseph and sometimes felt lonely, she pursued her love of painting and that kept her absorbed. I would talk with her on the phone often and she always started the conversation with a discussion of her latest painting. Trudy would sometimes despair that she couldn’t achieve the color she wanted or get the effect that was needed, but in the end, she always pulled it off. She was an amazing artist and did an incredible body of work in a very short time.

What a legacy she left her family and friends. We will remember her with much love for the rest of our days.

Francesca Droll and John Webster (husband)
