    Sending up prayers for the family of Mrs Truitt! She was my boss in the Collections Department at Huron River Area Credit Union years ago. She was a very classy and stylish lady who loved the Lord and represented Him well at work. Rest in Heaven!

    Gwen was an angel. She always gave me encouraging advise. She was my aunt. She was married to my uncle Jim. Gwen was full of wisdom and love. The last time I saw her she was laughing and smiling. God truly has called an angel home. REST IN PEACE, AUNTIE! Love you.

    Ralph and Family, We are so sorry for your loss. All of you have our heart-felt sympathy during this very tough time. We are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers during this time of need. God Bless All of You.

    Gwen was my coworker for many years and we shared that "Ypsi bond". She truly had a heart of gold. One of my fondest memories of her was seeing her love of the Lord and of music at a leadership conference at Willow Creek Church near Chicago. That sight of her clapping her hands is one of my inspirations. Condolences to the Truitt and Chauncey families, as their loss is heaven's gain. I look forward to seeing your smile again in the afterlife. RIP, my dear friend.

    There are no words that can express my sincerest and deepest condolences to you Yvonne and your entire family. Much love!

    Ms. Gwen was and will forever be a friend, a mentor, a confidant, a shining bright star to me. I met her over 20 yrs ago at Huron River Area Credit Union. And I can still hear her telling me about what it meant to be a righteous wife, mother, sister, daughter and friend. She was so full of wisdom that I can say, "thank you", Gwen, for contributing to the woman who I grew-in to be. June

    Rest on dear friend you will truly be missed by all you have touched with your smile and wisdom

    To the Truitt Family, sending Comfort and Condolences with continued prayers for your Family.

    With deep sympathy and caring thoughts. I wishing you comfort in you time of sorrow.

    My prayers are with your family during this difficult time.

    Sending our heartfelt prayers and sympathy to your family. She was a beautiful woman with a heart of gold. Our mother was a receiver of her bananas and grapes. She will never be forgotten. Louise Thomas Family
