Obituary for Trudy C. Nelson

At the young age of 63 of Tabor, IA, Trudy passed away Tuesday, December 31, 2019 at her home in her sleep. Trudy was born March 20, 1956 in Council Bluffs, IA to Kenneth Dale Nelson and Gertrude Helen (Bergman) Nelson.

Trudy would like to let you know that her work here is done. She received an offer she could not say no to. This offer comes with a huge sign on bonus, a reunion with family and friends she has not seen in a long time. She left strict instructions for her children to celebrate her mission. Trudy’s kindness, love, adventure and strong work ethic will live on in her children. She never met a stranger and was family to everyone she knew.

Trudy was a Licensed Practical Nurse for many years. The people she cared for most of her life became her second family. She was a mother who would sell her soul to keep her family healthy and happy, however, her most favorite role she played on her mission was being a GG and taking care of her great grandson.

Trudy was preceded in death by her parents and a sister, Robin Nabity. She is survived by her son, Michael Nelson and wife Andye of Gretna, NE; 2 daughters, Shanelle Fichter and husband Aaron of Tabor, IA and Marissa Hathaway of Council Bluffs, IA; 2 sisters, Mary Lewis and husband Craig and Ruthie Ross all of Council Bluffs; 9 grandchildren, Colby Nelson, Christian Nielsen, Gage Robb, Shelby Nelson, Katelynn Fichter, Garrett Robb, Kourtney Fichter, Kendra Fichter, and Lacey Nelson, 4 great grandchildren, Andrew Robb, Liam Estrada, Elijah Fichter and Alivia Robb, and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.

There will be a Celebration of Life on Saturday, January 25, 2020 from 4 to 7 PM at the Tabor City Hall Community Room. In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been established in Trudy’s name. There will be private disposition of ashes at a later time. The Crawford-Marshall Funeral Chapel in Tabor, IA is in charge of arrangements.
