Bessie H. Trulson, 88, of Edgerton, entered the gates of heaven from her home early on Friday, Nov. 30, 2012. Bessie was born on June 17, 1924, in Richmond Township, WI, to the late William and Lila Carroll. On Oct. 20, 1943, at Christ Lutheran Church in Stoughton, WI, Bessie would marry Theodore “Ted” M. Trulson. When Ted was in the Service, he would send home money to Bessie. When he got out, they had enough money to buy a Pool Hall in Edgerton. After selling the Pool Hall, they would buy a farm that they still own to this day. She also helped start FP&T Construction with Ted. Bessie was very active at Central Lutheran Church and would help out with whatever they need, especially the lunches. She worked for Meals on Wheels and was well known for her thorough cleaning habit, and would always bring a hot dish to friends and family when they were sick or had a death of a loved one.
