Trudy was born on February 1, 1945, in El Paso, Tx to George and Claire Roraback. She grew up in Houston, Tx and graduated from Milby High School in 1963.
Trudy dedicated over 40 years of her life to serving others as a nurse. She served with many international medical missions. The last several years of her career were spent teaching nursing students at Blinn College. She leaves behind an amazing legacy of nursing.
Trudy was also a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. Trudy fiercely loved her entire family but had a special bond with her best friend, her daughter Luci, and her granddaughter Victoria. Trudy was known to show up in her convertible and whisk Victoria away on spontaneous adventures. Trudy loved life and lived it to the fullest. She was always ready to go on a new adventure or help anyone in need. Trudy was affectionately called the energizer bunny by her younger brother, Hank because she was always on the move.
Later in life, Trudy met and married the love of her life Robert and they continued to enjoy life together, going on many adventures. Trudy was a lifelong Christian, but Robert led her to be a true born-again follower of Christ. Trudy enjoyed listening to Robert sing and play his guitar. Trudy enjoyed fellowship with her church family and especially enjoyed watching her great-granddaughter Harper engage in church activities.
Trudy was preceded in death by her parents and her younger sister Georgeanna.
