Obituary for Waltraud "Trudy" Axsom

Waltraud “Trudy” Axsom, 86, of Lapeer, died Tuesday August 8, 2017 on her birthday. She was born August 8, 1931 in Abenberg, Germany to parents Walter and Margaret (Dunzweiller) Wessel. Trudy married Chester Axsom in Germany before moving to the United States.

Mrs. Axsom was a very social person; if you crossed her path, you may have become a friend. She enjoyed drinking coffee and shopping; even if it was just to the local grocery store to walk and keep her healthy. She will be missed by her family and many good friends.

Trudy is survived by her children: Daniel (Robin) Axsom of Dryden; Marlene Barton of Lupton, grandchildren: Erik Axsom and Linda Short. Mrs. Axsom was preceded in death by her husband: Chester Axsom, a sister, a brother as well as her parents.

Mrs. Axsom’s family has entrusted cremation to Muir Brothers Funeral Home, Lapeer; per her own wishes. A private gathering will be held.
