Gertrude ‘Trudi’ Meyer

Gertrude "Trudi" Meyer died March 21.

Gertrude “Trudi” Meyer died peacefully in her sleep on Tuesday, March 21, 2006. She would have been 91 on April 11.

Trudi was born in 1915 in Aarau, Switzerland. In the early 1950s she moved to Aspen, where she met her husband of 50 years, Guido Meyer. Together they started Guido’s Swiss Inn, originally located in the present Hickory House space. A few years later they acquired the corner of Galena and Cooper, where they built up one of the best-known restaurants in the valley.

Trudi was a very loving, generous, happy and giving individual. People still remember her handing out Toblerone chocolate bars to kids who have long since grown into adults. She will be sorely missed.

She is survived by her children, son Guido Meyer Jr. of Basalt, his wife, Trish, and their children, Conor, Cassie and Paul; and daughter Rosie Wettstein and children Stephanie, Alexandra and Daniel. She is also survived by her former son-in-law Edy Wettstein. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband.A reception will take place in her memory from 4-8 p.m. Saturday, April 1, in the Hotel Jerome Ballroom.
