Jerry’s professional career took them briefly to Topeka, Kansas and then to Ellet, Ohio. After living eight years in Ellet, and 19 years in Norton, Trudy and Jerry moved back to Dover in 1993. Upon their return to Dover, the couple owned and operated the Fundays Rootbeer stand for 10 years. Trudy also served as an administrative assistant in the office of Dr. Lonsdorf in Akron and as beloved receptionist for Headz and Nailz in New Philadelphia for many years.
