Ruth Fudge went home to be with the Lord, joining her husband, Andrew R. Fudge Sr., her oldest son Donald Morgan Fudge and granddaughter Kristi K. Wheeler in the early morning of Sunday, Oct. 21, 2012.
She was born Sept. 13, 1920.
She is survived by her daughters and their husbands, Rett and John Baumann of Springfield, Ore., Myrna and Denis Brown of Wilmington, N.C. She also is survived by her son and his wife, Martin and Thelma Fudge of Okanogan, Wash.; and daughter-in-law, Linda Fudge.
She has been blessed with 13 grandchildren and their spouses: Teri and Robert Smallwood, Tami and Tom Chestnut, Toni and Dana Wilson, Brian and Cindy Fudge, Mike and Andrea Fudge, Cindy and Jason Luurs, Andrew and Lisa Fudge, Kurt and Jennifer Fudge, Rebekah and Daryl Pfitzer, Dana and Terry Ramsey, Michael Lee and husband, Brian McCarthy, and Talitha Lee.
She also is survived by numerous great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.
Grandma loved to spend time with her family, and hosting meals in her home.
As an active member of Riverside Lighthouse Chapel Assembly of God, she fed many workmen as the church building project commenced. She also spent many years as the church organist.
Grandma’s love for family, hostessing and music were only to be exceeded by her love for the Lord. Her greatest hope is to greet her family as they come into the presence of the Lord. WE MISS YOU, GRANDMA!
Going home services will be at 11 a.m., Friday, Oct. 26, 2012, at Riverside Lighthouse Chapel, 102 Tower St., Riverside, Wash. 98849.
A graveside service will immediately follow at Okanogan Valley Memorial Gardens Cemetery on the Conconully Hwy., Okanogan, Wash.
