Trudy Pierson Sedal passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family at St Mary's Hospital on October 12, 2012.
She was born in Amsterdam, N.Y., on March 12, 1927, the daughter of the late Minnie Denton Pierson and Harold Pierson.
Trudy graduated from Gloversville High School in 1945. She married Rudy Sedal on April 19, 1947, who predeceased her in 2009, after 63 years of a cherished marriage.
She worked many years as a dental assistant in Gloversville and later as a podiatry assistant in Florida but her most important role in life was giving her unconditional love to her family.
During retirement, Trudy and her husband enjoyed traveling to the ocean and exploring the beaches of Florida.
Her passion was gardening, cooking, reading, and fitness walking.
Trudy is the mother of Holly Anne Luciano (Ron) of Perth, N.Y., Lynn Louise Smero (Robert) of Greenfield Center, N.Y., and Michael Ross Sedal (Terry) of Taos, New Mexico.
