Sarah Elizabeth Rodgers Rucki, 31, of Wilmington, Delaware, passed from this life on March 28, 2015. Sarah's loving spirit blessed anyone who had the privilege of knowing her. Her kind heart brought compassion to the elderly and young alike in her past work as the Communications Director of the Senior Center of Tallahassee, Fla. as well as her recent service as a CPR instructor with the American Red Cross. Sarah graduated from Florida State University and carried her love of music with her throughout her life. Her talent as a flautist was much appreciated during her college years when she attended Catholic Church services with her maternal grandparents and made guest appearances playing the flute with the choir. Sarah loved God, was baptized and confirmed, and her gentle, giving nature was a comfort to others. Some of Sarah's happiest times were when she visited family and friends, where she enjoyed infectious laughter and unconditional love, and playing with the family dog, Winter. She was a fan of all things pink, teddy bears, flip flops, science fiction, travel, beach walks, and beautiful music. Sarah was a treasured gift to her family. Hugs from Sarah healed hurting hearts. She was an absolute delight. Sarah was, and is, one of a kind. Sarah was predeceased by her paternal grandparents, Fred and DeLois Rodgers of Liberty, Ky. She is survived by her beloved husband, Justin H. Rucki; her parents, Ron and Pat Rodgers, and her grandparents, Dudley and Ginger Howe, all of St Augustine, Fla.; her brother, Christopher (Samantha) Rodgers, and their two children, Ryan and Rebel, of Warner Robins, Ga. She was also loved by her many uncles, aunts, and cousins. A funeral Mass of Christian Burial for Sarah will be held on April 8, 2015 at 9 a.m. at the St. Anastasia Catholic Church, 5205 AIA South, St. Augustine, Fla. 32080, with Fr. Seamus O'Flynn, Celebrant. Inurnment immediately following in the church's columbarium. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Sarah to the St. Anastasia Catholic Church Choir Ministry or the St John's Ecumenical Ministry Food Pantry.
