      She passed away Saturday, December 14, 2013, in Beaumont, Texas.

      Trudy grew up in Kittery, Maine, where her father was a commercial fisherman. During World War II she met Wayne Peveto while he was stationed at the nearby Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. They married, and after his service in the Navy ended, they moved to his family home of Mauriceville, Texas, where they lived for more than 60 years.

      Trudy worked tirelessly as an active member of the First Baptist Church of Mauriceville and was known to generations of children as a devoted nursery attendant, pre-school teacher and daycare employee.

      She is missed deeply by her husband of more than six decades, Wayne Peveto; children, Coleman and wife Linda, Coleen Owens and husband Aaron Rosenberg, Steven and wife Renee, Alan and wife Marilyn and Melissa Mulholland and husband Brett; her 10 grandchildren, who often called her "Granny Trudy"; and her 13 great-grandchildren.

      Funeral will be 2 p.m. Monday, December 16, at the First Baptist Church of Mauriceville.

      Burial will follow at Bland Cemetery.
