Gertrude, Trudy’s Obituary At 95 years of age, Trudy passed away unexpectedly on Sunday February 2nd. Born in Boston she was the beloved daughter of the late George B. and Laura E. Foote. She spent her early childhood in Francestown, NH. As her father sought employment and health care for her mother the young family moved back and forth from the Boston area to New Hampshire. Trudy would attend elementary school in Francestown, attended High School in Somerville and was graduated from the Jeremiah Burke High School in Boston, Class of ‘43. During the war years Trudy worked at various jobs. She worked as a Nanny and belonged to the group of ladies known as “Rosie the Riveter” working in local Mills and as a sheet metal worker in the Charlestown Navy Yard. Trudy met US soldier Donald Ostler early in 1944 at Revere Beach. They were married in the Rectory at St Williams Church in Dorchester on December 28, 1944. As an Army wife she traveled with Donald to Camp Bowie in Brownwood Texas where he was in training before going overseas. There she held several jobs off post, her husband would walk the ten miles each day to be at home with Trudy every night. After his deployment overseas, she came home alone to Boston and returned briefly to Francestown, NH, anticipating the first of what would later be ten children. After Donald’s return, they would settle in Hudson, East Boston, and most of her life in Chelsea raising their family. Trudy would work outside of her home at the Brown Jug and Post Office. For many years she worked for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as a payroll administrator where she would boast it was her job to make sure the Governor got paid. After her retirement she would settle between Lunenburg VT and Orange City FL. Later on she would move close to family in Peabody and Saugus. Trudy was widowed in 2013 at the passing of her husband Donald after 68 years of love and devotion together. In addition to her husband and parents Trudy was also predeceased by her brother Robert E. Foote and her three sons; the late Warren, Kevin and Matthew Ostler.
