Trudi Lin Reynolds Richards died December 22, 2015 in Ashley Regional Hospital, Vernal, Utah. She was born July 10, 1955 in Vernal, Utah to Elmo Fredrick and Fern Elizabeth (Herrington) Reynolds (both deceased). Trudi was a graduate of Uintah High School where she participated in marching and concert band. Her adventurous soul led her to enlist in the army in 1974. She met Alvin Jones and was married to him May 24, 1975 in Washington DC. She served in the army in West Berlin, Germany which was an occupied city then. West Berlin is where their first son, Adam, and daughter, Tamera (Tami), were born. She returned to Vernal when her commitment to the military was completed. Her daughter, Tenieth, was born in Vernal and her son, Aaron, was born in Roosevelt. Aaron later died in Casper, Wyoming. Trudi married Ron Richards November 27, 1985 in Vernal where together they raised Trudi's three children and Ron's two children. Trudi had many talents but if you asked her children and grandchildren what they remembered most it would be their adventures. Whether it was up in the mountains having a picnic or in the valley picking asparagus it was an adventure with Trudi. If anyone needed a place to live for a while, Trudi's home was open to them. Her passion in life was her family.
