Born April 12, 1928 in Meilen, Switzerland, she was the daughter of Walther and Martha (Fischer) Leuenberger. In 1953 Trudi emigrated to Providence, Rhode Island, to marry her childhood sweetheart Oscar Luthi, whom she had known since kindergarten in their hometown of Steckborn, Switzerland. They settled in Nashua and eventually designed and built a home on Browning Ave. where they lived for over forty years and raised their four children. They routinely returned to Switzerland to visit family and attend class reunions. After retirement, they traveled extensively together and with family throughout North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. Oscar died on August 21, 2008, after 55 happy years of marriage.
Trudi made everyone feel comfortable in her company and always knew the right words to lift our spirits. She was a talented artist who loved to paint landscapes and flowers, as well as a skilled seamstress and knitter. She delighted in her family and was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, friend, and animal lover who will be sorely missed.
Trudi was a member of the First Church Nashua, UCC for sixty-five years. She was also a member of the Nashua Artists Association for many years. After Oscar’s death, Trudi became a member of the Hunt Community, where she lived for the past ten years.
