Obituary of Trude C. Tronolone

Trude was a woman who truly believed in the idea of “Family First.” Though she was raised as an East Side Polish girl, she quickly adopted the Italian lifestyle when she married her beloved Caesar. Every Sunday she would host a get together at her home for her family, where she would make her famous “Sunday Sauce.” Those get togethers were always her favorite, because she loved nothing more than being surrounded by her family. After Caesar’s passing, Trude became the breadwinner for her home, and she did her very best to be both a mom and a dad for her 7 children. She never complained about a thing, because at the end of the day, she’d happily do anything for her family.

Trude never liked to sit still, so she found lots of ways to keep herself busy. She loved having dogs around, whether they were German Shepherds or Golden Retrievers. Trude was an avid dancer and enjoyed moving to Jazz and Swing music like Benny Goodman. With her family, she would often go camping or for beach days before she began working. For her own peace of mind, she liked to garden around her home to make it more lively.
