Gertrude C. Montgomery

June 7, 1913 ~ August 14, 2019 (age 106)


Gertrude C. Montgomery 106 known by many as Trudy came to Oberlin during the emotional Vietnam War.  She came to replace an Assistant Dean of Women who left because of the stress of the position.  She came sight unseen and without any interview.  She was expertly prepared for the position and remained for one semester as she promised.  She liked the area and took the specialty position with the nursing department at  Lorain County Community College. Trudy retired from LCCC and spent most of the rest of her life in New Russia Twp. until Father time took his toll.  She "taught" us how to live without preaching, criticism, unselfishly, faithfully, honestly, gratefully, kindly, giving her talents, time and worldly goods whenever the need.  She is survived by 4 great nephews and 1 great niece. Family members adopting her and became her loving family are, Brenda McCullough, James McCullough, Diane Green, Kelly O'Neal, Vikki Hughes, Philip Verda, Vivian Verda, Jennifer Verda, Mike Verda, Jackie Verda and Marth M. Verda.  Trudy's special life has been extinguished. We will always be thankful that she touched our lives. Adhering to her wishes there will be no services.  Online condolences may be made to
