Gertrude Edwards Obituary

January 10th, 1934 – March 20th, 2024

Trudi G. Edwards, age 90, of Reedsburg passed away on Wednesday, March 20th, 2024, the oldest daughter of Albert and Lucy Ella (Brimmer) Spencer. Born on the family farm in rural Cazenovia, WI, Trudi was a 1952 graduate of Ithaca High School, after which she moved to Milwaukee where she met Wilmer Edwards at a YWCA dance.

Married on August 29, 1959, at the age of 25, she accepted the challenge of raising two young boys from a previous marriage. The two then chose to move the family to Wauwatosa, WI to provide an environment where their sons’ educational and spiritual growth could flourish.

Through Trudi’s loyalty with the First Congregational Church, she obtained a job as a bookkeeper with the National Association of Congressional Christian Churches (NACCC). After 40 years of honorable service, she retired as the Comptroller of the Association.

She returned to her family and friends in Sauk County where she continued to enjoy her lifelong passions of exercise, dominoes, cards, bird nurturing, and gardening.

A central figure of the family, her character of independence and strength was admired. Morally and ethically, she remained steadfast in her honorable beliefs, opinions, and values.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Wilmer; son, Jeffery Edwards; siblings, Donald (Isolene) Spencer, Elden (Darlene) Spencer, Raymond Spencer, Roland Spencer and Sharon Spencer.

Trudi is survived by her son, Steve (Kathy) Edwards of PA; grandchildren, Kevin Edwards and Faith (James) Wilson; brother, Edward (Sharon) Spencer; sisters, Mary (Frank) Novy, Georgia (Ronald) Moore; sisters-in-law, Sheryl Spencer and Mary Lou Spencer; 19 nieces and nephews along with other relatives and friends.

A private family memorial service will be held at a later date.
