(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 years together.

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.

Before this 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.

Trudy was preceded in death by her parents, Woodrow and Noreen Corsi; her brothers, Woody, Ted and Gene Corsi; her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Anthony and Rose Deldin; her brothers-in-law, Joseph and Louis Deldin, Joseph Sacchetti, Arthur (Wayne) Pearson; and sister-in-law, Betty Deldin.

The family would like to extend a special "Thank You" to the doctors and nurses at Dickinson County Hospital and UP Health System Marquette ICU for the care and compassion they gave her while she was there. We also want to express our "Thanks" to everyone at Erickson-Rochon & Nash Funeral Home for their kind and compassionate guidance through this difficult time.

The family is planning a Celebration of Life for Trudy for the Spring of 2021.
