Gertrude A. Horl

Berne- Gertrude A. Horl, a very special soul passed from this world on Nov. 7th, 2017. Trudy was born on July 4th, 1948 in Syracuse, NY. Trudy spent many years working and making dear friends at the Farm Family Insurance Co. After retirement she loved all the kids at Berne-Knox-Westerlo School, where she worked in the cafeteria. She spent summers in her garden and working at Thacher Park. She volunteered at EBC Therapy Center and Berne Youth Council. She enjoyed the local book club and knitting for the Alpaca Shack. Trudy touched souls every place she worked and volunteered with her positivity, energy and unselfish heart. She is survived by her husband Brian, their daughter Tori, her partner Todd, and their son Oskar. She is also survived by her brother Frederick (Duffy) Holman and his wife Karen. There are so many other family and friends, too numerous to list, but two people must be mentioned, without the unselfish help of Christine Gervasi & her husband John Kilroy, Trudy and Brian don't know how they would have managed through this past year. Calling hours will be held from 2-5pm on Saturday, November 11, 2017 at Fredendall Funeral Home in Altamont. There will be a graveside service on Tuesday, November 14th, at 2pm at South Berne Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Friends of the Berne Library, PO Box 42, Berne, N.Y. 12023


My deepest sympathy to the family and friends. Please read Revelation 21:4 which speaks of a time in the near future when all things will be made new. Even death will be a thing of the past never to be brought to mind again.

Brian I am so sorry for your loss. Trudy was such a good friend of mine and I let Tom ruin that. I am in NC now and can not make the services but if there is anything I can do please let me know. I love you and Tori.
