Mary Louise Trudell (Butch)
Mary was born September 16, 1932 to Alene and George Newman in Padroni, Colorado on her grandparent’s homestead. She was raised in Sterling, Colorado and graduated from Sterling High School in 1949. Her love for the Eastern plains of Colorado was one she carried with her throughout her life.
She married Larry L. Trudell in 1954. They lived in Denver, CO before moving to Commerce City, CO where they raised their children and she worked as a Teaching Assistant at Rose Hill Elementary. The pair enjoyed traveling and took many trips together. In 1985, they moved to Henderson, CO.
Mary was a fierce matriarch who dedicated her life to her family. She raised six children and two grandchildren. There was always a relative on the phone, a car in the driveway, or a grandkid playing in the yard at “Gram’s”. She enjoyed cultivating her flower and rose garden and was an avid reader.
On November 1, 2021, Mary passed away peacefully at home at the age of 89, surrounded by her family.
Mary was preceded in death by her parents and daughter Valerie L Trudell. She is survived by her husband Larry L. Trudell., children Pamela K. Trudell, Larry C. (Sherri) Trudell, Steven L. (Sherri) Trudell, Alan D. (Loraine) Trudell, and Laura J. (Charlie) Frye as well as her grandchildren Heather R. (Clint) Corken, Sonia M. Trudell, Stacey M. Trudell, Monique A. Trudell, Hanna C. Trudell, Katherine L. (Michael) Hart, Garrett A. Trudell, and great-grandchildren Valerie R. Luna and Stacey B. Trudell.
