Heaven has welcomed its most caring angel. Chris Dudero, 69, passed away on May 19, 2015, from metastatic cancer at her home in Escondido. Chris was born in St. Paul, MN, and raised in Kansas City and Valley Center. She attended Prairie Bible Institute in Alberta, Canada, for a few years, then returned to graduate from Escondido High School in 1963. Chris dedicated her life to caring for others. She started her nursing education at El Centro in Los Angeles, pausing to start a family. She completed her degree at Otterbein College in Ohio while raising six children and stepchildren. She also became certified in oncology nursing. She worked in home health, hospice and oncology for more than 25 years, earning admiration and making lifelong friends wherever she went. Her patients were always her passion and priority. Even in semi-retirement, Chris continued to serve. She supported neighbors with cancer, and crocheted caps for chemo patients and countless baby blankets. She put "first things first" and helped many others do the same. Chris loved going to shows with friends, visits from her grandchildren, and playing with her cat, Rascal. She had a beautiful singing voice that a few lucky people got to hear. She enjoyed reading and was usually the first person to crack a joke. She is survived by her brother, Scott Dudero of Escondido; children, Lisa (Tom) Carr of Dallas, TX, Brian Werner of West Palm Beach, FL, and Karen Werner of Wellesley, MA; grandchildren, Keith, Audrey, Garrett and Seth Werner, all of Las Vegas; niece, Ginger Schroepfer of San Antonio, TX; nephew, Scott Dudero of Eugene, OR; and loving in-laws, stepchildren and friends. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Charles Douglas Merchant; mother, Virginia Coffman Porter; father, Gordon E. Dudero; and stepfather, Raymond Porter. Chris asked that her family and friends honor her memory with a celebration, which will take place this summer. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to a non-profit hospice in your community. Chris touched thousands of people with her generous spirit, wise counsel, easy laugh and open heart. We will miss her every day, forever.
