Power-Coombs, Gertrude “Trudy” M. –Age 58, Bible Hill. It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Gertrude “Trudy” M. Power-Coombs on April 10, 2021.

Trudy was predeceased by sister, Veronica as well as father, Philip.
Trudy was well known by family, friends and co-workers as a very honest, incredibly passionate and fiercely loving woman. She lived everyday as her authentic self and always told you what you needed to hear, whether it was what you wanted to hear or not. She is remembered as the person who lit up every room she walked into with her sparkly eyes, loud personality and unforgettable laugh. A very giving person who would give a stranger the shirt off her back. She was loved beyond words and will be missed greatly.
