MADISON- Gertrude "Trudy" Laura Starr, age 95 of Madison, passed away on September 10th, 2019 at Skaalen Nursing Center. Trudy was born on a farm in Hampton, WI on Nov. 10, 1923, the daughter of Bert and Edna (Jones) Edwards. Bert was an immigrant from England and Edna was from Columbus, WI.
Trudy went to Columbus High School and graduated in 1940. She also attended business college in Madison. She met her husband, Phillip Starr, after he returned home from the war. The couple were married in Madison, WI in 1949 and had two children, Tom and Tim. Trudy worked at Bank of Madison as a cashier before taking some time to stay home and raise her children. As her children got older, she returned to the workforce in the mid-70's, working at Oakwood Village in Madison.
Trudy and her husband were charter members of the Midvale Lutheran Church and she was a member of the Miriam Circle. She volunteered at the Madison Children's Museum, as well as for the American Girl Company sewing doll clothing. Trudy and her family were famous for their Bridge parties among their large group of life-long friends.
Trudy was very crafty and was known for making outfits and jerseys for not only her children, but for her Troll dolls. She was someone that everyone liked, and she would never say a bad word about anyone. She will be remembered for her eternal optimism and unconditional love to all she met.
Trudy is survived by her children; Tim of Milwaukee, WI, Tom (Ann) Starr of Stoughton, WI; grandchildren, Leah Starr of Stoughton, WI, Sarah (Cole Hackney) Starr of Littleton, Co.; and nephews, John (Debbie) Edwards of Columbus, WI, and David (Diane) Edwards of Beaver Dam, WI. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Phillip; and brother, Lloyd Edwards.
A funeral service for Trudy will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 18th, at 11am at Midvale Community Lutheran Church, 4329 Tokay Blvd. Madison. Friends may greet the family one hour prior to service. Burial will take place immediately following services at Roselawn Memorial park. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Agrace HospiceCare, 5395 Cheryl Pkwy. Fitchburg.

Trudy was just the sweetest, always smiling, always kind. My mom, Barb, Don and Joanne (all the Toomeys) send our love and condolences. We loved seeing her at Oakwood and have great memories of parties and get togethers while growing up!

Trudy, Phil, Tim
and Tom were family friends. My Mom and Trudy met at Bank of Madison and remained friends for several decades. She was kind, thoughtful and will be greatly missed.

Trudy was a true friend to my grandparents. She exemplified friendship, kindness, and joy. A person that you were drawn to and she loved all. So blessed to have known her and for all the happiness she brought to my family at events. Prayers of comfort to the Starr family. Trudy is with Jesus and playing an awesome game of Bridge with Phil, Joan, Jim and others
