|(Friday - February
05, 2021) - Trudy Ann Deldin, age 70, passed away peacefully at U.P.
Health Systems Marquette. She went to be with her Lord and Savior on
November 24, 2020, due to complications associated with Covid 19.
Trudy was born on April 3,1950, in Iron Mountain, to the late
Woodrow and Noreen Corsi. Woods and Noreen were overjoyed; after having
four sons, they finally got their girl.
Trudy graduated from
Iron Mountain Senior High School in 1968. In March of 1972 she met her
soulmate, John Deldin, and on October 28, 1972, they were married at the
Immaculate Conception Church in Iron Mountain. They shared 48 amazing
Trudy had tried different jobs in her early
adult years: cashiering at a local grocery store, sales clerk,
bartending, and also a desk clerk at Pine Mountain Lodge. In 1979 she
began working at the Iron Mountain Kingsford Federal Credit Union, where
she worked for more than 30 years, retiring in 2011. While working at
the Credit Union she made many lifelong friendships.
terrible pandemic hit, Trudy enjoyed getting together with her friends,
whether it was meeting the gang from the Credit Union for lunch, or with
her classmates of 1968. She especially looked forward to those "Annual
October Shopping Trips" with "The Girls."
Upon retiring, she
helped care for her mother Noreen. When her mother could no longer live
alone, Trudy and her husband John took her into their own home and cared
for Noreen until her death in September of 2018. Trudy loved and missed
her mother dearly.
Family being very important to Trudy, she and
John hosted the family Christmas party on Christmas Eve for years. She
would go all out to make it a special and memorable occasion for
everyone, with games, prizes and many laughs.
Having a knack for
craft making, she gifted many of us with her elegant hand-beaded
bracelets and jewelry. She also made beautiful bookmarks and placemats
from her adult coloring books. During this pandemic, and being the
caring and giving person Trudy was, she switched from crafts to masks,
making over 100 personal masks for family and friends in hopes of
keeping them all safe from this senseless virus. As safe as she was,
unfortunately the virus found its way to her. None of us will ever
understand how or why.
Trudy was an active member of Mt Olive
Lutheran Church of Iron Mountain for many years. She enjoyed attending
church and had a strong faith in the Lord.
A friendly, caring
person with a great sense of humor, Trudy could have a conversation with
anyone, wherever she went. She will be greatly missed by all, but mostly
by her loving and caring husband John.
Survivors include her
husband, John; her brother, Robert (Vicky) Corsi of Quinnesec; her
sister, Faye (Don) Cesario of Green Bay; sisters-in-law, Kathleen
(Kathy) Sacchetti of Iron Mountain, Delores Pearson of Clearwater,
Florida, Barbara Deldin of Clearwater, Florida, Georgia Corsi of Vulcan,
and Elaine Corsi of Tigard, Oregon; and many nieces and nephews.
Of special note, Trudy considered her sister-in-law Kathy Sacchetti
to be more of a sister than a sister-in-law. She also shared a close and
special relationship with her nephew, Anthony Cesario.
