In loving memory of the late Sarah Lois Rudd who sadly passed away on 16th October 2014

Our mother Sarah Lois Rudd nee Wheat was born in Stretton on Dunsmore, Warwickshire on January 11th 1957 to Bernard Wheat and the late Barbara Aubrey. She was sister to Johnny (Lewis), Jeremy and Verity, and step-daughter to Gillian Wheat. Her main career was as a Telephonist for British Aerospace at Bitteswell, Leicestershire where she met our Dad, Stephen Rudd who she later married and had a son Scott while living in Rugby. Unfortunately in her early twenties she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Both our parents were made redundant so they followed the work and moved to St Ives, Cambridgeshire where they then had a daughter Naomi.

Our mum was a great fan of music and was known for her love of Rock artists such as Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Guns n Roses to contemporary Pop music from Genesis, Bryan Adams, INXS and Robbie Williams. Mum was also a great lover of the Soaps on TV and would rarely miss shows like Eastenders and Corrie.

As a family we were fortunate to have many enjoyable experiences and make very happy memories with our Mum. Visiting the Wheat family in Fishguard, visiting Scotland, spending summer holidays at the East Anglian coast, driving across to the South of France, flying to the Canary Islands. A lot of these times we travelled and holidayed with our Grandparents, Thelma and John Rudd who have always supported and thought dearly of our Mum Sarah. The unforgettable Christmas and New Year Cruises sailing around and visiting locations in Europe and parallel islands to North Africa that our Mum enjoyed greatly.

As time went on Mum’s illness became harder on her and the family and she made the difficult decision to leave the family home, separate from Steve and move into nursing care to Askham Place Doddington, March. There she has spent her last years and made many friends with fellow residents, the nursing staff and all the carers who she always bonded well with. She always loved to introduce us, her children to her friends and keep up to date during our visits with our lives and careers.

On the early hours of Thursday 16th October 2014; Our Mum Sarah passed away peacefully in her sleep. Today we lost our beautiful Mum who taught us so much in life and we could not have asked for a better role model to look up to. Everyone including ourselves always said that our Mum was a Ray of Sunshine, always smiling laughing with a wicked sense of humour. Rarely would you see her upset, sad or unhappy, including the difficult 30 or more years she fought against MS.

We love you and admire you so much Mum. We are heartbroken and will never stop thinking about you. No matter what happens in our lives we know you will always be there in our hearts, thoughts and unforgettable memories.

Love you always and forever.
Scott and Naomi


On a lasting note we would like to offer our great thanks to all the nursing and care home staff that made our Mums life comfortable in a happy and welcoming environment through out the time she lived at Askham Place, Doddington.

Sarah and I are cousins and when we were about 10 and 7 years old we went to stay for the night at our Nanny's house in Coventry. We shared what seemed like a huge double bed in the front bedroom which was absolutely freezing! Nanny gave us a hot water bottle and we tried to get warm and go to sleep, however little girls just get excited and sleep was far from us! Quickly pretending we were asleep when she crept into our room much later we could not believe that she stole our hot water bottle! When she'd gone we were so cross, but also had a terrible fit of the giggles! My memory of Sarah is rolling around the bed laughing! I did not see much of Sarah over the years, just at family weddings and gatherings, but she was always quick to smile and catch up with news.

Naomi, I am afraid I won't be able to come tomorrow, it is just too much to get there and back in one day and leave Lola and she is not at a stage where she could come with me. I have been thinking a lot about your mum and thinking of stories I could tell but actually most of them aren't ones that you would put down on an obituary site! I remember her laugh. I remember her telling this story of falling off her scooter outside your school but the actual punchline was how dishy the headmaster was when he helped her up. I remember she was the first person I met who actually liked prawn cocktail. Going to Woolworths to buy Easter eggs with her. Going shopping for glamorous sequined clothes to go on the cruises. I remember she bought me a dart board for my birthday because that's what I asked for. We both liked Phil Collins. I remember she bought a Four non blonds album. I remember getting lost with her when you were in your buggy and she was pushing you, I said I think we should go back the way we came but she was absolutely determined even when we had to go up a hill side of metal steps, she used to tell that story like it was a right jaunt. and the laughing keeps coming back to me, the silent laughing when I thought she was crying but actually she was having absolute hysterics. I remember your Dad carried her until it almost broke him. Sarah taught me so much that I didn't even realise until I started living my life with Lola. She did have a great sense of humour but she was also honest and told it like it was, and I never remember her being embarrassed if she couldn't do things or needed help. I wish I could be there tomorrow, I hope that I could get to know you and Scott again. I will be thinking of you all. Love Verity X

Even in the face of adversity your smile and laugh always shone through. Many happy memories spent with you when you lived in Rugby before you moved to St Ives, and of the many weekends I spent with you and my brother. Thank you for giving us Scott and Naomi. Always in our thoughts. May you now be able to Rest in Peace.

I was so lucky to have known Sarah since I was a very young little girl at play group where I met one of my oldest best friends Naomi, I will always remember Sarah's cheeky laugh, amazing sense of humour and just how much of a true fighter she was through everything she faced and went through.
I will always have great memories of her listening to her music and her huge collection of CDs, and also being the queen of all the TV soaps! And trips along the long path to the co op with my mum, Sarah in her scooter and my pal Naomi!

Thinking of my lovely friends Naomi & Scott and their family at this time a and knowing that Sarah will be looking down and thinking how proud she is of them always and forever.

Sarah Rudd - you amazing lady who will be missed so much but always in our thoughts, laughing away xx
