Mildred Cora Trulin
Mildred Cora Trulin, aged 99, born October 28, 1905 in Panora, Iowa passed away on October 23, 2005 in Seattle, Washington just five days shy of her 100th birthday. Mildred married Harold M. Trulin Sr. on May 6, 1922 and together they moved their family to Seattle in 1936 to start a new life in the Greta Northwest- the land of opportunity. Real Estate was their calling and for forty successful years, she and her husband owned and operated "Trulin Realty," in West Seattle.
All would agree that she had indeed earned the title of: "Family Matriarch." She had a habit of facing adversity head-on and with a stiff upper lip, giving inspiration to others that knew her or knew of her. She was a proud woman of strong convictions, having a professional work ethic and was fiercely independent. She was an avid gardener, good cook, mentor, great conversationalist, and a caring individual in her many life-roles such as: Daughter, Sister, Friend, Wife, Mother, Caregiver, and Grandmother. She loved the great outdoors and all it had to offer, such as: mountains, lakes, the ocean's, fresh air, fishing, clamming, gardening, camping, traveling and hunting. She devoted her life to her family, always providing for those who needed her. Many family members made a habit of dropping by to see "Meme," as she was so fondly referred to, where she always had something ready and willing to share with visitors. Whenever duty called, she was there. She gave continual support, praise, and inspiration to those she loved, instilling and teaching the values of hard work and the dedication necessary towards fulfilling and obtaining one's dreams. She had concluded that there was no better place to live than the Greta Northwest and it will be there, that her remains will be given a final place of rest.
She is survived by her Son: Norman Trulin, Daughter-in-law: Marilyn Trulin, Grandson: Bruce Adams, grandson: Steven Adams, Granddaughter: Pamela Cox & husband: Steven Cox, Granddaughter: Kimberly Edson & husband: Randy Edson, numerous Great and Great-Great Grandchildren.
