April 12, 1960 – January 8, 2012
Trudi Lynn Hershman, of Berthoud, Colorado, passed away on January 8, 2012, after a courageous battle with cancer.
She was born to Sandy and Jess Gingery in Longmont, Colorado, on April 12, 1960. Trudi graduated from Berthoud High School in 1978, and married David Hershman on October 1, 1977. After her children started grade school, Trudi followed her dream of going to college. She earned a degree in accounting and teaching from Colorado State University and went on to work for Boulder County Aging Services and Human Services.
Trudi loved her large family, friends, and co-workers. She enjoyed camping and 4-wheeling in the great outdoors and spent many weekends in the mountains with her family and friends. Nothing was more important to her than spending time with her family. She also liked shopping with the girls and quilting.
To know Trudi was to love her, and anyone that knew her would agree. She is survived by her beloved husband, David, son Jared, daughter Jennifer Domann, Jennifer’s husband Brian, and her soon-to be born granddaughter, Svea. Trudi’s dream was to see Svea and we know she will.
She is further survived by her mother, Sandy Gingery; sisters Sheri Orback, Jodi Starck and Mindi Jones; her brother Allan Gingery; and numerous nieces and nephews. Trudi was preceded in death by her father, Jess Gingery.
A celebration of Trudi’s life will be held at Grace Place, 250 Mountain Ave., Berthoud, on Saturday, January 14, 2012 at 10:00 am, with a reception to follow. Memorial contributions to HospiceCare of Boulder and Broomfield Counties can be sent to Ahlberg Funeral Chapel in her memory. Visit www.ahlbergfuneralchapel.com to share condolencesPrint This Post
