Gertrude (Trudy) Boyer of Mays Landing, NJ, and formerly of Feasterville, PA, passed away peacefully at her home on Saturday evening, March 13, 2021, surrounded by loved ones. She was 88.

Loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Trudy is survived by her husband of 66 years, Gilbert John Boyer; her daughter, Cynthia Miller; her son, Wayne (Vicki) Boyer; her five grandchildren, Bryan Thomas (Fran), Jeffrey Grossman, Andrea (Nathan) Beck, Michelle (Benjamin) McGuire, Lexi Miller; her three great grandchildren, Colton Beck, Connor Beck, Sadie Beck; as well as her sister, Roberta Miller.

In addition to her parents, Robert Bechtel and Elsie Bechtel, Trudy is predeceased by her daughter, Judy Boyer, and her four sisters, Ethel Widdows, Elaine Gracie, Betty Held, Irene Booth.

Trudy was raised in Philadelphia and graduated from Frankford High School where she was a member of her sorority. She met her husband, Gilbert, in 1953 and they were married September 24, 1955, after his return from military service overseas. Trudy enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren; she loved them with all her heart. Trudy was an active member of her church, an avid reader, and loved to talk to people.

Trudy will be cremated. Her ashes will someday permanently rest with Gilbert at Washington Crossing National Cemetery in Newtown, PA.
