Tru received a Certificate of Completion in Nursing Assistance from Cloud County Community College. She worked as a private duty home aide providing personal care for many people. To insure a home for her daughters, she also took a position working with a private janitorial service. She loved praising God, thrift shopping at Goodwill and eating out at Taco Bell. Tru enjoyed going to the YMCA swimming pool, riding the ATA Bus, sitting outside in her yard under the tree talking to friends and waving at everyone that drove by. Tru always showed friendliness. She always stated, "Because I'm really, really, really blessed!
She always greeted everyone with a warm smile. She would bend over backwards, to help everyone in whatever way she could. You never had to ask what she was thinking because she was going to tell you whether you wanted to hear it or not. To know her was to love her. She left her mark wherever she went. Her vibrant colors and love for God, family friends and year round Christmas lights. She designated herself as the family doula by traveling and providing assistance when her daughters and nieces had new arrivals.
One of her greatest joys in life was raising her three beautiful daughters to be best friends and have each other’s back no matter what. She was a phenomenal mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, friend, care giver and loved serving others with no discrimination of person. Anyone wishing to see Trujilda again will have to go to heaven, since heaven has become her new residence.
