Obituary for Gertrude Joyce Rocheleau

Mrs. Gertrude “Trudy” Joyce (Martin) Rocheleau, loving mother and grandmother, passed away Monday, October 29, 2018 at the age of 86. She was born in Plattsburgh, NY on May 27, 1932, daughter of the late Paul T. and Ada E. (Brow) Martin. Trudy worked for over 30 years as a Emergency Room Coordinator at Northwestern Medical Center. She married John Boesch November 3, 1957, and were blessed with a daughter Alicia. Mr. Boesch predeceased Trudy on February 11, 1987. Trudy later met Ernest Rocheleau, and they could be found dancing the night away at the local VFW and spending time with friends and family. They fell in love and were married on May 25, 1991. Mr. Rocheleau predeceased Trudy on August 12, 2007.

Trudy was a member of Holy Angels Church, the Ladies of St. Anne, and the VFW Women’s Auxiliary Unit #758. She enjoyed gardening, sewing, knitting, baking, and most of all spending time with her two grandchildren. Trudy loved camping with her daughter Alicia in Maine, and later spending summer nights on the porch with Ernie. She was also known for her Christmas baked goods, Easter decorations, and amazing homemade Halloween costumes.

Trudy is survived by her daughter Alicia, her son-in-law Frank, and her granddaughters Alexandra and Brittany.
