Trudy Sharon Kirk, 69

Trudy S. Kirk, 69 years of Butler, passed away peacefully, Monday, March 13, 2023, in her residence.  Trudy was born March 5, 1954, in Lackey, Kentucky, the daughter of the late Hiatt and Helen (Bradley) Chaffins.  Trudy was a 1972 graduate of Garrett High School, Garrett, Kentucky, and continued her education at Eastern Kentucky University, where she received her bachelor’s degree in 1976.  Trudy married Larry D.

Dangler of Angola, Indiana, Burneda Howard of Hindman, Kentucky, Betty Reed of Auburn, Indiana, and Johnny Chaffins of Lexington, Kentucky.  She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Larry; four brothers, David Chaffins, Larry Chaffins, Clinton Chaffins and Jerry Chaffins.
