Mary Roberta Rudge
Mar 30, 1928 - Jan 19, 2014
Resident of Alameda
Mary Rudge passed away peacefully, at the age of 85. She had fought a brave battle with cancer, and passed away, in her own home, to be with our Lord, at last.
She had a rich and wonderful life, and raised seven children: Louis Jordan Rudge, Robin Davidson, Mary Star Rudge, Caroline Rudge, Alice Mobarry, Glen Rudge, Diana Rudge, (and many grandchildren).
Mary's life brought joy and happiness, to all who met her. She is the City of Alameda's first Poet Laureate, an artist, and loved to travel the world. Her travels took her to China, Sri Lanka, Ireland, Hungary, Austria, and many other places. She wrote poetry to try to help with world peace, and to give a voice to the farm workers, and many people, that are seldom heard. Her efforts were tireless, and her friends are many.
Public Visitation will be held at Greer Family Mortuary, 2694 Blanding Ave. Alameda, CA on Tuesday, January 28, 2014, 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Vigil Service: 7:00 p.m. Funeral Mass will be held at St. Barnabas Catholic Church, 1427 Sixth St. Alameda, CA on Wednesday, January 29, 2014, at 10:00 a.m. Burial will be at St. Dominic's Cemetery following the Funeral Mass, 585 Hillcrest Ave., Benicia, CA.
