She was preceded in death by her parents Thomas and Grace Cashel, twin sister Julie Ann Cashel and sister Judy Cashel Sabolsky. Trudy will be lovingly remembered for her incredible devotion to her grandchildren as well as her love for all things “The Wizard of Oz.” In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her name to St. Jude’s Cancer Research Hospital for Children.
