Sunday, August 2, 2015 Trudy Muir (1953-2015)

Trudy Muir was born on 5 August 1953 to Henry "Jack" and Eppa "Eppie" (Swan) Muir. There has been some debate among the descendants of Henry Muir as to whether he and Eppie had children together. Trudy's birth certificate was signed by Eppie, so I believe she is the mother. T

When she was 19 years old she had a daughter, Abraxas "Abby" Kitten Muir. Abby's father was Harold T. "Duke" Word, but Trudy's father would not let them marry, according to one of the children for whom she babysat. They got back together and married several years later. She was also married to Ray Huffman, Jr., who is now deceased, prior to her marriage to Duke Word.

In 1993 Harold and Trudy Word lived in Maryville, Tennessee.

She died on 4 May 2015 at the Blount Memorial Hospital in Maryville.

  1. I have a copy of my mom's birth certificate and it was signed Eppie Muir, so I do believe papa Jack and Grandma Eppie were married.
