May 16, 1924 — February 29, 2024

Gertrude (Trudi) A. McKee, 99, formerly of Horsham, passed away peacefully on February 29, 2024 at Artman Home in Ambler.

Trudi was born in Pittsburgh to Gustav and Bertha Just on May 16, 1924. She graduated from Allegheny High School in 1942. She married Ralph A. McKee on January 8, 1949 in Pittsburgh. She worked in the banking industry until the birth of her children. Trudi moved with her family to Horsham in 1961. She was a member of Supplee Presbyterian Church for over 60 years where she was active in the Women’s Association and served as a volunteer in the church office. She participated in many social activities including bridge groups and bowling leagues and especially enjoyed spending time poolside with her dear friends. Trudi returned to the banking field after her children were grown, working most recently for Willow Grove Federal Savings. Trudi was devoted to her family and wide circle of friends.

 Trudi is survived by her children Judith McKee (Richard Thom) and Scott McKee (Robin); grandchildren Amanda Jarrett (Kellen), Elizabeth Thom and Thomas McKee; extended family Manuel Meléndez and her granddogs Bea and Sadie. She was predeceased in death by her husband Ralph and her brothers Gustav Just and Edward Just and her sisters Eda Piroth, Hilda Hoffman, Meta Sipe and Minna Good.
