Gertrude “Trudie” Washnock, of Latrobe, a caring wife, mother, grandmother,
sister and friend, left this world peacefully on September 27, 2021, at the age of
94. She was born on November 17, 1926, in Latrobe. Trudie was a charter
member of the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Latrobe. She loved her family,
her violin, and her church, and we will miss her beautiful voice. She spent a
wonderful, loving life with her late husband, William “Bill”, working by his side in
their business. Trudie is survived by three daughters: Linda Adams (Chris), Jeanne
Vesco (James), and Debra Colaizzi (Joe); grandchildren: Blair Adams (Denise),
Tara Roach (Jason), Michael Vesco, Jeanna Mascio (Dino); great grandchildren:
Blair C. Adams, Ava Adams, Maeley Roach, Bradley Mascio and Trista Mascio, and
a number of nieces and nephews. She is also survived by a sister, Betty Bolton,
and sister-in-law Cecelia “Sis” Washnock.
The family would like to thank the Prince of Peace congregation for the many
cards, notes, and flowers. She loved receiving them so much.
A special thank you to Shirley, Sharon, and Cindy for their loving care and also
Heritage Hospice who were so wonderful.
