Loving wife, mother and sister, Trudy Eckert, passed away May 23, 2022.

Trudy was born in Orange, New Jersey and graduated from Our Lady of the Valley High School before marrying her husband of 64 years and raising her family in Lake Parsippany, New Jersey.

Trudy was known for her fun-loving attitude and for always being willing to dig in and help whenever and wherever needed. For years she was very involved in the LPPOA and the Lake Parsippany
Fire Company District 3. They have been retired in Pennsylvania for the past 20 years.

She is survived by her husband, Robert John Eckert, Sr. and their five (5) children: Robert J. Eckert, Jr. (Kathleen A. Holly), Jeffrey S. Eckert (Elaine M. Wankmueller), Katherine V. Eckert, Mark E. Eckert (Krista Mendelsohn), Keith G. Eckert and her dear sister, Eileen (Kocher) Argondizza and her husband, George.

Her 10 grandchildren and her 8 great grandchildren were the light of her life. Family was everything to her and she lived for family gatherings and most recently her grandchildren’s weddings.

Services were private under the direction of the Par-Troy Funeral Home.
