Obituary for Trudie (Lundeen) McConnell

Funeral services will be 11:00 a.m. Saturday, February 10, 2018 at Graham United Methodist Church, Rice for Trudie McConnell, 64, of Rice, who died on February 4 in her home after a courageous year long battle with cancer. Rev. Rick Koehn and Rev. Ken Felska will officiate and burial will be in the church cemetery. Visitation will be from 4-8 p.m. Friday at Williams Dingmann Family Funeral Home in Sauk Rapids and one hour prior to the services Saturday at the church.

Trudie was born February 12, 1953, in Virginia, Minnesota, to Charles and Lasine (Nordstrom) Lundeen. Trudie was the youngest of three children. Trudie graduated from Virginia High School in 1971 and then attended St. Cloud Business College for court stenography. She was united in marriage to Richard McConnell of Rice, Minnesota, in 1973. After working for various law firms in Iowa and Minnesota, Trudie and Dick moved to Duluth where she worked for a law firm and Dick was a diesel mechanic. In 1984, Trudie and Dick purchased the McConnell Dairy Farm from Dick’s parents, and they worked the farm until retirement in 2008. She was the Graham Township clerk for many years and a member of the Graham United Methodist Church. Trudie was employed by the St. Cloud Police Department from 2006 until her retirement. Trudie will be remembered as a devoted mother and wife, a lover of animals, and an avid reader.

Survivors include her husband of 43 years, Richard; sons Michael of Fargo, ND and William of Waite Park, MN; brothers Charles Lundeen (John Williams) and Richard Lundeen (Ann Kolstad); numerous nieces and nephews, cousins and friends. Trudie was preceded in death by her parents.

The McConnell family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to the St. Cloud Police Department, officers and staff, the St. Cloud Hospital, and CentraCare Health Home Care and Hospice.
