Gertrude "Trudy" Terchila of Masury, passed away on Monday, Dec. 11, 2017, while a patient in UPMC Shenango, Farrell, surrounded by her family following a period of declining health. She was 75.
Trudy was born in Sykesville, Pa., on Aug. 11, 1942, a daughter to Morgan M. and Dorothy (Null) Valimont.
A 1960 graduate of Brookfield High School, she found employment working for the former Loblaw's grocery store, Sharon. In addition, she held management positions for both Mr. D's and Giant Eagle, in Brookfield, before retiring.
In her spare time, she enjoyed playing cards, gardening, and cooking. She was a diehard Cleveland Browns fan. However, spending time with her granddaughters, playing chauffeur, and attending their every sporting event is what she cherished the most.
Survivors include: her daughter, Ronda Bonekovic, Masury; her grandchildren, Morgan Bonekovic, Madison Bonekovic, Tristan Rodriguez and Avery Rodriguez; and her extended family.
She was preceded in death by her parents; siblings, Donna "Beulah" and Jay White, Dan Valimont, and Sara Lee Yassall; and niece, Donna "Beatle" Davis.
Monetary contributions can be made to her family for a future Brookfield High School scholarship in her memory.
Gertrude "Trudy", 75, of Masury.
A Celebration of Life service is being planned and will be announced soon.
Coordination of this tribute for Trudy was presented by Daniel Briceland, owner and director of BRICELAND FUNERAL SERVICE, LLC, 379 State Route 7, SE, Brookfield.
