Trudy Lynn Brown Nault, age 72, of Great Falls, died October 28, 2020, of natural causes.

Trudy was born November 1, 1947, in Polson, MT to Harry and Bernice Brown. She was a member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes. She moved with her parents to Great Falls in 1951. She attended local schools, proudly graduating with the first class of the new CMR High School in 1966.

Always ambitious and fiercely independent, Trudy worked for many years as a cashier, bookkeeper, and as a secretary at the 4-B’s Cafeteria in the Holiday Village Mall. She worked at home too, keeping her home immaculate and beautifully decorated while raising her son, Steven.

For a short time in the late 70s, Trudy and Steven moved to Polson where she worked as a clerk at Hubbard’s Pharmacy (Harbor Pharmacy). As the saying goes, “Home is where the heart is,” and Trudy and Steven eventually returned to Great Falls where she lived out the remainder of her life.

Trudy enjoyed reminiscing and had a mind like a steel trap. She never forgot a name, date, funny story, or a beloved memory of family or friends.
