Helen G. (Trudy) Minichiello
Lakeland, Florida – 76, formerly Watkins Glen, NY – Trudy Minichiello of Lakeland Florida passed away on June 14, 2016 and was born on November 28, 1939 in Elmira, NY. Trudy was an award winning beautician in her youth until she transitioned into an award winning wife, mother and grandmother for the remainder of her life. Trudy was predeceased by her father and mother, Richard R. and Martha B. Williams, brother Richard Williams Jr., and sister Martha (Marty) Hadlock. She is survived by her husband and best friend of 54 years, Thomas Minichiello, sons James (Lone) Minichiello, Thomas lll (Sandy) Minichiello, Michael (Pam) Minichiello, and Joseph Minichiello, and daughter Ann (Kyle) Tuttle. She is also survived by her beloved grandchildren, James (Lindsey) Minichiello, Stephen Minichiello, Tony (Alyssa) Minichiello, Dominic (Drew Moore) Minichiello, Maria (Robert) Moeslein, Dominick L.(Becca Antelis) Minichiello, Vincent Minichiello, Haley (Dale Carrigan) Tuttle, Adam Tuttle, and Jackie (Mike) Szymoniak.

During those years, she also raised her five children, operated a taxi service between the Watkins Glen High School and her home, put on numerous dinners at the Watkins Glen Elks club with her best friend Vera Franzese, and acted as a second mother to too many people to list. She was a very understated woman with an over-abundant heart and will be greatly missed by all.
