The family expresses our deep appreciation to the Baptist Homes where Susan was a resident for over 6 years. We are truly grateful for the care and compassion provided by the first floor staff. Everyone there has at least one “Susan” story to tell.
As our mother’s memories faded we treasured ours all the more. Please take a moment to call or visit someone you love or care about; memories last forever and two hearts will soar.
Friends will be received on Tuesday, July 2 from 2-4 & 6-8 pm at Paul Henney Cremation & Funeral Tributes, 5570 Library Rd. Bethel Park. Mass of Christian Burial will be offered on Wednesday, July 3, 10 am, at St. Valentine Catholic Church. Interment will follow in Calvary Cemetery Mausoleum.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you “pay it forward” to a veteran in need or veteran organization in memory of Stanley Rudek’s service in WWII.
