Please join us in wishing Trudi, Trevor & Marilyn’s youngest daughter an incredibly happy birthday today! (January 11)

Trudi makes up half of our Tru-Su Rosé, with her sister Susan… But that is only the beginning. 

Trudi is mum to Charli (Charli Jaye Chardonnay) & Jack (Jack Harrison Shiraz) and is easily one of the most loving, caring, and empathetic people you will ever meet. 

Marilyn recalls Trudi’s caring nature from a young age for anyone and everything. Even when going through her own hardships she would always put others first. On numerous occasions she’s been known to bridge the gap when someone is caught short paying for their groceries and will never hesitate to give someone a hand when needed. 

She was quite a noisy child, so you won’t be surprised to hear she was in the band at school, playing the tuber and drums (practicing her drum routine at home much to Marilyn’s dismay). 

Caring, loving people often end up in careers that allow them to love and care for others and for Trudi, that meant becoming a beauty therapist, going on to have her own business for 16 years. She is conscientious, hardworking and reliable- only taking time off when she had Charli and Jack. There is no doubt that her business acumen can be at least in part credited to Trevor’s influence and Marilyn’s unwavering support. 

When Trudi was widowed, she moved her focus from being split between her beauty therapy business and her family, to putting 100% of her focus to her kids. A neighbour once commented that they were sure they’d seen her car leave the house 20 times that day running around after her kids- and Charli said it is one of her favourite things about her mum, her reliability. She is always able to pick her and her friends up no matter the time. There was, and still is, nothing she wouldn’t do for her children. 

Charli said one of her favourite memories was being squashed into a crappy 2-man tent with her mum, brother Jack and their cat Boots... in their backyard. The three (plus cat) are very close and are always chatting.

So, we hope you enjoy a glass of Tru-Su Rosé today and toast to Trudi. We wish her all the success in the world as she embarks on another trip around the sun!
