I worked with Max the last year he was with Maxon Shirt Co. Max & Trude were two of the greatest individuals I have ever met. They proved it as I read about them before I signed up to work at Maxon. Every activity they engaged in afterwards shows how important immigrants are to the United States & the World. Please show this to Steve...their son.

I am sorry to hear of this. As the adult child of a deceased WWII Army Veteran who helped to end WWII, along with so many millions of men and women from this home we call earth, I will always be in awe of the sheer tenacity of women like this lady who fought back along with her husband and their families to stand up to evil itself. The Ten Commandments have and always will be my rules for living indeed. Will be praying for you and yours mam.

Trude was one of the most amazing person I had the pleasure to know. When my family moved to Greenville in 1980 we met Max and Trude at the Synagogue and they then introduced us to now life long friends. She had a heart of gold and will surely be missed by many. May Her Memory forever be a Blessing.
