Tuddie was a member of St. Louis Parish, Catholic United Financial and Christian Women and St. Margaret’s Rosary Society in Lake Henry.

Tuddie enjoyed quilting, embroidering, gardening, playing cards, trips to Branson, MO, and the highlight of her day was going for coffee. She treasured being with family and friends, especially her grand and great grandchildren. Tuddie will be remembered for her excellent cooking and amazing pies.
