Mary Trudich had no enemies.
An innkeeper, she was the perfect hostess.
In fact, people around South Tamaqua say her heart was as big as the mountain behind her warm roadside cafe.
If you were hungry, she fed you. If you were in a jam and needed a few dollars, she'd reach into her apron pocket to help you out.
"She'd give you the shirt off her back," says nephew John 'Sonny' Trudich, Jr., of the Owl Creek section of Tamaqua.
Mary never had children. But in many ways, the gracious 56-year-old widow was seen as a motherly type.
